~ James J. Barrie ~
Are you planning a funeral or a memorial service for a loved one or pet?
Planning a Funeral Service or Memorial Service can be daunting. So many decisions ~
Domenic Tamborriello has conducted memorial services for over fifteen years. Having had a Catholic father, a Jewish mother, having been baptized as a Methodist, and having an affinity for Buddhism, he has the kind of background that allows him to honor mainstream and non-traditional spiritual traditions as well as non-spiritual sentiments.
Pets are often important family members and they find a special place inside the hearts of those around them. Domenic understands the importance of pets as creatures who can sometimes love us better, more unconditionally, than any human. This connection deserves to be appreciated and respected for what it is to the humans who love and were loved by the friend they lost. Together, we can plan a service that will honor the love and joy that a beloved pet has brought to its human family even if that family was only one person.
As a poet and a spiritual seeker, he can draw upon a wide range of spiritual literature that allows each service to speak to the hearts of those in attendance because he can easily connect with the hearts of the person who has passed and those that are left behind.
Memorial services are planned with the notion that someone actually lived. Someone actually made a splash in this world. That splash deserves to be honored and celebrated with courage, love, and honest appreciation. And let's not forget to include a sense of humor!
Grief Counseling: No stranger to grief and loss as a result of his own journey, Domenic understands that each person's response to the loss of a loved one is as unique as their fingerprint. These responses are sometimes a flood of feelings and sometimes very confusing. Sometimes people can be frozen and unable to grieve, sometimes they are unable to move beyond a draining kind of sorrow. Talking with Domenic can help you understand the twists and turns, peaks and valleys of the grieving process. Sometimes it is reasonable to charge for these counseling services. Sometimes it is not.
