Hi, my name is Al Howse and I am a certified funeral
celebrant in the province of Ontario. Please accept my deepest
condolences for your family's loss. Please remember that you are not
alone... I am always here for you.
I am here to assist you in creating a life celebration ceremony for your loved one that will be an authentic reflection of his or her personality and life passions. I am flexible and creative and will help you to incorporate important components in personalizing your loved one's ceremony.
I am available to perform your loved one's ceremony at the location of your choice. If you need help with choosing the ceremony content I have amazing ceremony resources available to every family that decides to use my services.
You can weep because he is gone,
or you can smile because he lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that he will come back,
Or you can open your eyes and see all that he has left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see him
Or you can be full of the love that you shared,
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember him and only that he is gone
Or you can cherish his memory and let it live on,
You can cry and close your mind be empty and turn your back,
Or you can do what he would want: smile, open your eyes,
love and go on
