Celebrant, Director

My background is in behavioural science.

It’s no secret that organising a funeral is seldom an enjoyable experience. It inspires me to know that I can make a difference to your life by helping you through a stressful, sad, even scary, event in your life.

James Joyce the novelist said that “funerals are for the living, not the dead”. That’s right. You are the one with the problem.

I give you a smooth, professional, low-stress experience by taking responsibility, and guiding you around all the pot holes on the road to a successful event.

Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that just have to “get it over with”.

The first thing that you should know is that you are not in a rush to hold the funeral, you have plenty time to consider, to plan, and to come to terms with what needs to be done.

Don’t be stampeded into thinking that you must hold the funeral in a rush. Nowadays, 7 days is quite normal. This gives you time to do things in a well-considered manner.

The first thing you must consider is your choice of Funeral Director.

You need to appoint a Funeral Director immediately and I hope that before you make any other commitments you will talk with me, so call me now.

You should be able to trust your Funeral Director to give you good advice – and take the load off your shoulders by doing all the heavy lifting.

My job is to give you what you would have wanted, had you known that it existed.

Call me to discuss what’s happening, how you feel about it, and what I can do for you. I will make a lot of useful suggestions and open your mind to many aspects that you may not have considered.

If you are not content with a funeral chapel, why not use a beach, your home, a favourite location of the deceased? Anything is possible.

Working with Picaluna, I can offer you a polished, professional, cost-effective event.

Let’s face it. Funeral costs are a source of irritation to many people.

Our prices are very competitive. You may be amazed that our most popular coffin/casket, the one you see in our funeral photographs costs $461 – not the thousands that you are expecting to pay.

We have an “open book” policy on pricing. We show you what we will pay for the products and services we will use for the funeral we provide for you, and we make our profit by adding a service charge to these costs.

You know exactly where you stand with no hidden surprises.

I am here to help you. You will benefit from my skill, experience and professionalism.

Call me day or night at Picaluna on 02 9191 5006, or on my private line 0409 713 350 8 am to 9 pm.
