I provide highly personalized ceremonies for individuals who are not a member of a church or who simply don’t want a religious ceremony.

The loss of a loved one is often accompanied by an enormous sense of grief and loss.  Even if their death was expected, the reality of your loved one's passing can be very painful and overwhelming and the thought of preparing for a memorial or funeral can be very distressing.

I’m Aretha Gaskin, a Funeral Celebrant certified by the Celebrant Foundation and Institute and I’m here to work with you at this difficult time. What exactly do I do?  I collaborate with you and your family to plan, craft and officiate a beautiful ceremony that is befitting to your loved one based on your requests.
