With Covid 19 restrictions coming back in for funeral services I will find it hard to meet families face to face but will continue to support them across East Sussex. I regularly work as a funeral celebrant in Eastbourne, Bexhill, St Leonard's, Hastings, Brighton and Tunbridge Wells. I will miss my outreach visits to families, but will do my best to make Zoom meetings and telephone consultation a cathartic experience.
Today I conducted a very moving funeral ceremony for a family who had been so loving and supportive to a vulnerable soul. I was touched by what they had done for their loved one in their difficult time here. The quote from Pablo Neruda, "To Feel the Love of People Whom We Love, is a Fire That Feeds our Life...." Was so apt. I am lucky to learn from others in my job and revalue what I have in life. Being a funeral celebrant is humbling.
