Milestone Alternative Funerals
Milestone Celebrations aims to give information of alternative and creative ways of celebrating the milestones of life – and alternative funerals. Whatever the occasion it is important that it should be unique and reflect personal values and beliefs. With a little imagination, inspirational occasions can be created without breaking the bank or damaging the planet.
Jean Francis has written ‘Your Day Your Way’ (Inspirational Weddings) in which she draws on a lifetime of experience as a party planner and caterer. Her second book ‘Time to Go’ offers ideas for thoughtful farewells that honour the life of the deceased and encourage those who wish to pre-plan their own funeral. Currently Jean is producing a book on Baby Naming and Welcoming Ceremonies.
Jean is able to give a Mentor Service in the form of one-to-one advice via e-mail and or telephone. She also runs workshops and gives talks on celebrating significant occasions, specialising particularly in funeral and memorial ceremonies.
