I wanted to give a shout out to Pam Vetter for kindly highlighting Adventures in Grave Hunting in a recent edition of The Funeral Lady Newsletter.
The Funeral Lady: Pam Vetter
Pam, a fellow ValleyNews.com citizen journalist from West Hills, Calif., is a Certified Funeral Celebrant. She provides personalized funeral and memorial services that reflect someone's personality and life story. As Pam explains on her website at CelebrantPam.com, it's "much more than a simple job, it's a new profession filled with meaning and touching lives."
Being a Celebrant includes a family meeting, writing an original tribute, and conducting a full service. I also conduct graveside services. From beginning to end, each service requires approximately 15 hours, sometimes more if you are traveling at a distance. Sharing in someone's grief, hearing their pain, and listening to their memories is an important job in helping families begin the healing process after loss. Becoming a Celebrant changed my life forever. I will never forget the names of those I've served.
Thanks, Pam, for all the wonderful and important work you do!
