Lucas is a Certified Funeral Celebrant. A Funeral Celebrant is a professional who has been trained in the specific area of planning and conducting personalized funeral services, memorial services, celebrations of life, graveside services or tributes for families that desire a very personalized experience. While a Funeral Celebrant's expertise may be used in either faith-based or secular services, a Celebrant may be especially helpful to families that prefer a secular service. The Funeral Celebrant meets with a family and helps them to design a service that reflects the life and attributes of their loved one, and then conducts that service at a place of the families choosing.
Lucas is a Certified Crematory Operator, through the International Cemetery, Cremation, and Funeral Association. Certification assures our families that their loved one is in the hands of a specialist.
