Though an experienced creative writer prior, my passion for honoring our beloved dead came first with composing the obituary for my Granny, my closest grandparent.
It was such a delight to bear witness to the stories of her life as told by her family and friends. And, the sacredness of holding space for those left behind was was so clear that I was moved and guided to offer this to others in service.
For me, the love of stories and the healing of our families and communities through ancestral lineage work both energizes me and leaves me ironically speechless.
I look forward to holding your stories, to celebrating and telling the perfectly human truth of the person(s) you love.
Thank you for this honor, and your trust.
