  You captured the spirit and essence of my Mom so well. …My brothers and I are so grateful that you were the person we found to set the tone for this most important day for our family and friends L.O. (Daughter)  

   Thank you very much for all you did to make my husband’s memorial special…We all appreciated that you clearly made a special effort to personalize your comments and strike a balance, keeping it meaningful, inclusive and light at the same time. Our trust was well placed with you. A.R. (Spouse)  

  The service that you put together for our Mom was so special. It was like you knew her all your life. Please accept our family’s thank you for such an incredible service. You do an amazing service for families that are grieving. C.M. (Daughter)  

  I can’t thank you enough for the beautiful service you did for my husband. I couldn’t have had a more perfect Minister if I had hand picked you myself. Everything was perfect….You truly have a calling. D.H. (Spouse)  

  Deborah did the Celebration of Life for my Father. After, his elderly friends came to tell me they had never been to a nicer service and they wondered how long Deborah had known Dad. They actually had never met! Deborah so clearly captured all that was the essence of Dad. Her dedication was well researched, exceptionally well spoken and her words resonated with all of us who were present. 

I would highly recommend Deborah for any Celebration! She is wonderful.  A.I. (Daughter)
