Final-Farewell has flourished from the aspiration and purpose to change public knowledge, attitudes and behaviour towards death, dying and bereavement for the better. Working to address this by encouraging people to talk about their end of life wishes, including where they want to die. To make the journey for those left behind easier through the knowing that their loved ones have expressed what type of funeral arrangements they would want and what should happen to their remains after they're gone.
Coming from a professional health background many may wonder why I created this website. Although I have only been working in the funeral planning field less than two years, in that time, I have met many amazing people and been given the privilege of attending the final send off to some of those acquaintances too. All of which happened through working with a colleague promoting Pre-paid Funeral Plans. To my amazement I warmed to the opportunity and realised from all the years of working with creating healthy lifestyle programmes for many clients, more importantly they also needed to consider an end of life plan too.
As I chatted to people standing in a cold shopping centre for eight hours a day, three days a week, I experienced an eureka moment! An incomprehensible feeling of sheer positive joy and purpose from the help/advice I was imparting; "Spread the word, inspire and encourage as many people as possible to record their wishes for their final departing of this world. Help the families of those that have been taken suddenly or have made no provision for their expression of wishes to pay tribute to the commemoration of their loved ones life by planning and scheduling the funeral with them, and offer the service FREE my head said."
In truth I hope this website will leave you inspired and empowered and that you find something here which will help you in some special way. My goal is not to cohere, badger or expect you to commit to a prepaid funeral plan. I simply ask you to consider allowing me to freely give you my time to inform you of your choices and help you plan today for tomorrows circumstances - this is my Gift to you all Caroline Small BSc (Hons)
