The Honouring Ceremony was held in a beautiful open air chapel within the Cemetery – what a beautiful location with the wind gently caressing the cheeks of her family (it felt like her spirit passing by) and the birds were singing in the surrounding trees.
The family decorated the area with symbols in a beautiful tribute to their mother and grandma.
The Ceremony started with a Candle Lighting in her memory and in memory of all others who had passed away due to cancer; this very important to
the family. All her grandchildren participated in the Honouring Ceremony doing what they felt comfortable with – their love for the Grandma was obvious.
Before the Committal was verse ‘The Rainbow Bridge’ as recited, it was so appropriate and read beautifully by her Granddaughter. After the Committal the family and friends covered the coffin with beautiful colourful rose petals – she was in her rainbow.
It was an intimate yet dignified honouring and goodbye to a beloved lady in the manner that she wished and in a manner that the family found comfort with and a manner that honoured all that was important to their loved Mum and Grandma.
