“Would you like the most beautiful service that celebrates and appreciates your loved one? Dr Rebecca does everything to provide the finest services with the kindest services. Her services wrap families in comfort, care and compassion. As one of the most experienced and highly qualified Christian Celebrants in the country she has conducted hundreds of services for all kinds of needs. As an author, Rebecca has written extensively about life, love and loss. Many people have asked Rebecca to be named on their funeral plans and asked her to compose their service for the future. Every service is a stunning and unique creation that reflects your needs and desires. She presents a bound copy of the Service, Tribute and Prayers which is a treasured token of love, faith and grace. Rebecca will take great care of you all and will bring you some of her legendary cakes!”
