A Celebrant: 

Every Life is Worth Remembering

Who can you think of to lead a funeral or Celebration of Life? A spiritual leader, or a charismatic brother-in-law? If you don't have a spiritual leader or a family member who can act as an emcee, we offer you a Celebrant. 

Our Celebrant, Chris Walker, is trained to craft meaningful services for people who may not want religion present, or just a little of it. His caring leadership sets people at ease.

Chris has been trained by InSight, a progressive company who sees that funerals must provide memorable moments for the living. An InSight Certified Celebrant is a person who has been trained and certified through InSight to meet the needs of families during their time of loss. A Funeral Celebrant serves by providing a funeral service, memorial service or tribute that is personalized and individualized to reflect the personality and life-style of the deceased after consultation with the family and loved ones and coordination with the funeral home.

The Celebrant will meet with the family to offer guidance and consulting while planning a personalized and meaningful funeral to honor the loved one. The Celebrant will have a Family Time for sharing of stories and memories. A Celebrant has a wide library of resources for readings, music and other special ceremonies to help the family design a service that honors the life.

Celebrants will work directly with the funeral director on the arrangements and elements of the service and are dedicated to the concept of providing a tribute that reflects the lifestyle and beliefs of the individual. Your service can have any elements, music and readings that are right for you and for your family.

James Reid is pleased to provide Chris Walker, Celebrant, to make your gathering personal and meaningful, the way you'd want it to be.
