Praise From Our Clients

Your special touch - on everything from the video, photos, flowers, memorial table and CAKE (!) were stupendous and captured the essence of my mother in ways I never could have imagined. I am so, so grateful for you - and the incredible gift you gave me - of SPACE - so that I could grieve my mom's passing, care for my dad and also find words to express something of what my mom meant to me and all who knew her.

Sandi is compassionate, competent and creative, and she is passionate about creating a memorial that will be remembered for years. This is the person you want to partner with to create the tribute of your dreams. She knows what it feels like to be lost in grief and how a simple decision, like choosing a color scheme, can feel overwhelming to a brain overcome with grief. Sandi's creative background and knowledge of events positions her to be a creative consultant on design elements. If you are unsure of what you want, that is no problem for Sandi. She will brainstorm an abundance of ideas for the event and all you need to do is select those that appeal to you. She does her homework on the honoree and has a well-developed sense of what would be appropriate. I can't think of a better person to be a memorial event planner than Sandi, who has both the requisite skills, experience, and natural talent to work sensitively and proficiently to fully deliver on her promise to create an epic memorial.     

               

A true measure of how well Sandi did is reflected in the feedback I got from some of the attendees (these are verbatim quotes):     

      

  • It was a magical night!
                         

  • It was PERFECT!
                         

  • Amazing!!!!!! John’s tribute was priceless. The memories you now have will help fill your heart every time you look over the lawn. So so glad you hired her!!! She’s really thoughtful, sensitive, kind and selfless. Oh! and did I say an artistic wizard? She’s starting her career with a cosmic boom! Lot’s of great experiences are ahead of her!!
                         

  • What an incredible night to remember!
                         

  • What a gift! You sure did honor him!
                         

  • It was obvious that good friends were there for him and that you had arranged the most beautiful and creative send-off I have ever attended. Sandi's intimate touch was on everything. You should be so proud of ensuring no one who was in attendance will ever forget the deep love that you and John shared as was reflected in every loving touch.
                         

  • We enjoyed ourselves very much and we have nothing but congratulations on an outstanding memorial and production! John would have been proud indeed.

My dearest companion and husband, Jerry, died on Dec 7, 2017 after 54 years of married life, and 56  years of loving him.  As we considered our tribute to his life, it was important to our family that we tell Jerry's story, express how he touched our lives, and share the many facets of his being as authentically as we could.

 

Sandi used her professional photography skills to create a montage of our chosen photos. She was a master in assembling pictures that corresponded with stories shared by speakers throughout the service. Not only were the pictures professionally presented but they seamlessly captured Jerry's sparkling eyes, his loving smile, and truly the essence of who he was, making it an unforgettable event.

 

Not only did Sandi coordinate the pictures for the memorial service but she created a second photo montage that played continuously during the reception- photos from all aspects of Jerry's rich life delighted our guests throughout the evening. Sandi also assisted me in professionally formatting an elegant order of service unique to Jerry.

 

You will not find anyone more in tune with the fine details that distinguish an event than Sandi.  Besides possessing a natural sensitivity to the nuances surrounding death rituals, she has the knowledge, the experience, the creativity, and the skills that allow her to mark such important occasions in an exceptional way.

My mother was my absolute best friend. When she was sick in the hospital and we learned that she wasn’t going to recover this time, it was devastating and heartbreaking. The only thing that helped me with my heartbreak was knowing I could give her the celebration of life that she deserved. The most important thing to me was to honor her and her life, taking into consideration her wishes and desires the best way I could. Thankfully, I had the ability to speak with my mother (although it was difficult) to learn about her end of life wishes before she transferred to hospice.

Throughout my mother’s three month illness, I spent every single day by her side. When she passed, I was empty inside. I was emotionally and mentally drained. I knew I had to find the strength to put together her celebration of life, but the grief was overwhelming. Thankfully, Sandi offered to assist. She is a wonderful, creative person who has a beautiful heart and the ability to help others when they are in deep mourning. My mother loved flowers and her favorite color was purple. Sandi created beautiful flower arrangements for my mother’s celebration of life and in her decor, she found thoughtful ways to include my mother’s love of music and going to concerts. She also created a personalized memory book for my family which includes handwritten notes from guests.

On the day of my mom’s service, I didn’t know if I could do it. I was seconds away from a complete breakdown. When we arrived at the location, Sandi knew I needed her. She immediately went to work creating displays of photos, memorabilia and flower arrangements and helped me create the beautiful celebration of life that my mother wanted and deserved.

 

Sandi’s passion is helping others, she is a strong, and talented individual who does beautiful and meaningful work. Give your family and yourself some time and space to heal when you lose a loved one. Allow Sandi to help plan your Epic Memorial, you won’t regret it!
