Sample Excerpt of a Celebration of Life Service

Billy Ring “On behalf of Billy’s family, I would like to thank each of you for coming today to celebrate his life and your love for him. There is comfort in this human need of gathering to pay forward our feelings – to honor another’s life – to remember our place in their life and their place in ours. We are here today to find comfort in gathering together as we surround each other with our prayers for the dearly departed – and for each other. Let us, together, celebrate a life – make its ending recorded with the greatest respect and do so in the most meaningful way we can” says Diane Axent.



“Diane performed a Celebration of Life Service for my mom, Thelma Bacon, who just passed away April 5, 2017 and I can’t thank her enough for the prompt, efficient, respectful, loving, compassionate and helpful friendship she provided to me during this difficult time. She was with me when mom passed and walked me through the whole process from beginning to end. I would have been so lost in the ordeal if it had not been for her.  I have had so many remarks about the service she officiated and would not have changed a thing.  It was everything mom would have requested and more – above and beyond!  I would recommend Diane Axent’s professionalism and knowledge to anyone.  No stone was left unturned and I knew I was in capable hands all the way.  I can’t say “Thank You” enough.”

“You provided so much comfort to our family with all your friendship and assistance with our dear Mom Judy’s passing. It was appreciated and so helpful at that very difficult time. Thank you.”



“A sincere thank you for being the Life-Celebrant who officiated such a beautiful Celebration Service for our brother Billy’s life. The compassion you showed our family, under the circumstance of your busy schedule and our sudden lost, was a total comfort and blessing. You made Billy’s life-celebration very personal. Please except our sincere gratitude for such a beautiful dignified and graceful fair well for Billy. I am sure he’d have appreciated it as much as we did. Diane, you are a very compassionate, genuine and organised professional I would highly recommend to anyone – a beautiful person inside and out, who will always be dear to us and never forgotten. God bless and our heart-felt thank you.”
