Kari is clearly “top of the class for sensitive, caring, quality service delivery” at a very challenging time when you truly need it.
Right from the outset when our small group of family and friends met Kari and sat down with her at the Memorial Service venue we’d selected, there was a lovely rapport and strong sense of relief. We all, practically instantaneously, knew we had discovered the pearl we had been looking for in the rough sea we found ourselves now navigating.
Dealing with the loss of a loved one tragically and unexpectedly is challenge enough. Little did we know that finding a Celebrant to achieve our desired goal now of a fitting Memorial Service to remember and celebrate that life, could also prove so challenging. Now here was Kari, such a gentle caring supportive soul who was clearly broadly experienced and well skilled to guide and handle proceedings despite the complex circumstances we presented – half the family overseas, close family and friends interstate plus the uncertainties of COVID restrictions. No request was too much to ask of her and always calmly and confidently accommodated.
Now months after our tragic loss and some weeks after the Memorial Service, I am still receiving calls saying how much people had enjoyed it, plus congratulating the Celebrant on a truly excellent job. In fact, a few seemingly inevitable technological glitches experienced during the Service, were barely noticed by participants, eg Karis’ ad-libbing when the AV programming didn’t quite sync on screens, plus her leading when a favourite song didn’t proceed in time. Kari really delivered a truly commendable, superb Service for us. I strongly and confidently commend Kari to you.
