    34 Year Old, my daughter, died too soon....

    Barbara Boyd: It’s impossible to sum up in just a few words the beautiful end of life celebration that Barbara made so perfect! We met with Barbara, through tears, hoping to get “help” with my daughters Service. Barbara sat and listened for two hours. She asked about my daughters personality, what her short 34 years had been like. Two days later she sent over a prepared summary of the 3 hour Service, including poems, and the speech she would read to our 100 guests. As sad and uncomfortable as this was, Barbara truly gave my daughter a sweet GOODBYE celebration! Our many thanks to Barbara for her compassion and genuine personality. We could not have pulled this off in one week without her!! Seascape Golf Course Banquet room was the venue and The staff and Chef really made this event special. I didn’t want some cold Chapel, my daughter would not have wanted that.

    A calm presence on your big day

    Even though Barbara was only physically present during the big day, she was such an important presence throughout the entire planning process. For months leading up to the wedding, I could count on Barbara to be responsive to my questions. We partnered together on creating an amazing ceremony that was perfectly tailored to my and my husband. I would highly recommend Barbara as she will surely calm your nerves the day of!
