Funerals and Memorials

Funerals and memorial services are for the living and for the dead.  This is a time of passage and transition for everyone involved. It’s crucial to have a service that is authentic and true to the deceased, a comforting a guide through the ceremony of the grieving process.

 Everyone grieves in different ways, some need more or less help,  some know exactly what they want,  some need more guidance.  Emerald makes sure to meet the needs of the bereaved. 

Personalized Rites of Passage

Rites of passage are important and we don’t honor these moments as we did in the past. Hiring rituals, retirement and graduation parties are great but aren’t always enough to create psychological closure and make sense of our lives in a mythological way.

Whether you’re looking to incorporate multiple faith traditions into your rites or are looking for something more spiritual and less religious, Emerald can help you create a ceremony to mark the occasion.

Possible Rites of Passage:

  • Coming of age
  • Baby blessings
  • Retirement
  • Naming ceremonies
  • Transition ceremonies
  • Divorce ceremonies
  • Pet memorials
  • Renaming ceremonies
