Ordained Funeral Minister
At Ceremonies By Reverend Karyn Gates, I am an ordained funeral minister in Buffalo, NY who will oversee all the details and minutiae involving your loved one’s service. When you choose me as a caring and compassionate certified funeral pastor, a major burden is lifted, and you create a joyous farewell ceremony for a loved one.
When you are planning a funeral, I will help you create an environment that reflects the feelings and beliefs of your family member or friend. I will carefully help you write a tribute of the character and life of your loved one. This will be a celebration of his or her life and the emotions that the family and friends have toward the deceased.
Each ceremony is unique to capture the person’s essence, faith, and spirit. Saying farewell to them at the funeral is just the beginning of saying goodbye. By releasing their spirit through an appropriate ceremony, this will be your way of letting go, making your loss and the loss of those left behind easier. As an ordained funeral pastor, I will make the whole process easy. I will help guide you through the process to make the ceremony planning easy to understand and with the belief system that you encompass.
A funeral brings together family and friends of the deceased to pay respects and offer condolences. This can take place with a service at a place of worship or a funeral home, followed by a procession as the deceased is transported to their final resting place, concluding with a final graveside ceremony by a funeral leader. This can be done either as a religious or non-religious ceremony with a funeral minister overseeing the event.
