Funeral services conducted with compassion and professionalism.

When it's time to say goodbye, I can help you find the words.

The death of a loved one can feel overwhelming. I am here to create and conduct a remembrance service that will capture the essence of the person who passed, and help those who are gathered together feel comforted.

Rev. Alice Langholt, Ph.D.

A Comfortable Process

I will meet with you and facilitate a compassionate discussion of your loved one's life story, their endearing qualities, and the anecdotes you'd like to share.

Together, we'll plan the moments of the funeral service: What will happen, who will speak, and determine a flow that feels exactly right.

With my guidance, readings, rituals, prayers, and eulogies will be set into place. The service structure and elements are totally up to you, and I will collaborate with you to create a memorial that feels exactly right in accordance with your beliefs. Whether you want a service that honors certain traditions, a secular service which centers on celebrating a life well-lived, or anything in between, I have the interfaith education, resources, and experience to assist you.

In Caring Hands
