Certified Celebrants

Many times a family may not know how to proceed in planning a funeral or memorial service for their loved one because they do not have a clergy person or other officiant. At the R.G. & G.R. Harris Funeral Homes, we have two Certified Celebrants on staff that can provide a celebration of life service. David Cash and Summer Ploski have both had extensive training and have assisted many families that we have the privilege to serve in planning their loved one's final tribute.

A family who chooses this option will meet with the Certified Celebrant to discuss their loved one's personality and significant times and memories of their life. The Celebrant will then compose and present a personalized service that truly reflects the true essence of the life being celebrated that day. Some of the optional tributes that a family may choose to add to a service are: readings of favorite passages, videos, meaningful songs, or personal messages spoken by family or friends.

Although the Certified Celebrants are not clergy members, the services can include religious references or be completely secular.Whether the service involves a traditional burial or a cremation, the opportunity to celebrate their loved one's life in this manner has been very valuable to many families. They otherwise may have chosen not to have a service and would not have experienced the closure that gathering and sharing with friends and family can bring. Our compassionate Certified Celebrants help provide meaning and personalization to the service.
