I feel truly honored to be not only a comfort but a 'teller of the story' to family and friends during the time when they have lost a loved one. Death is an inevitable but challenging life transition. I believe that the ability to reflect on the memories, to acknowledge the good and the gifts they have left behind helps us in our healing, and keeps those memories alive and within our hearts.
Like all my ceremonies, a funeral or memorial service will be created based on information you give me about your loved one. I want to tell the story of this person and share it with family and friends. Your service will be personal and unique, including poetry or readings I find that reflect the person you wish to honor.
Cindie Wilding performed my father’s memorial service on 9/18/11. From our first conversation Cindie was very compassionate and understanding. Our family dynamic was complicated but Cindie was able to contact several family members to get their stories on our father to put together a very fitting service. I would highly recommend Cindie for your memorial or funeral service.
Cindie I wanted to thank you for doing such a beautiful job on Andrea's memorial. You gave us a very special day, one to remember and celebrate Andrea's life. You also helped give us an opportunity to learn so many new things about her from her friends. Thank you again. It made Ann proud, I know it.
My brother and I lost both our parents in less than three months and we hoped to have a non religious ceremony that could help both our family and our parent's community say goodbye... Cindie helped us create a wonderful ceremony where people felt welcome to share their stories, to laugh and to cry together. We could not have been happier with that special day.
Cindie officiated a gathering for my grandmother's memorial a few weekends ago, and we couldn't have asked for a more wonderful ceremony: she beautifully wove together a story of our grandmother's life for us, while opening up a down-to-earth space for family, friends, and neighbors to share their experience and memories. Thank you Cindie!
