“ From the very personal, intimate ritual of the blessing of his body as he lay in the perfect shroud made specially for him to the gentle coaxing of sweet stories which had us all laughing with love over our precious Jack to your gracious service the next day at All Souls Natural Burial Ground---you were absolutely SUPERB. All of my family eagerly shared how you made everyone feel so relaxed and at ease (also admitting they weren't so sure about this whole idea!). Many friends also commented about how lovely and peaceful you made it feel as the able Celebrant. May God bless you and the wonderful work you do for grieving families. ”
“ Thank you, Sara, for your dedicated loving support and guidance before, during and after the beautiful home funeral for our beloved Kate. You became a friend of Kate and all of us during the many months leading up to her death. Your tireless energy and unwavering enthusiasm was a precious source of strength for us all. ”
“ "My mother wanted a simple burial without embalming. We did not know if this was legal, and we called Sara for information. During each phone call, she encouraged us to reach out to hospital and hospice staff to make sure they knew that what we were asking was within our rights. The hospital staff was very gracious, and provided us with refreshments, as well as beautifully peaceful music. A nurse stayed with us to help with the washing of Mom's body, placing her into the casket, and transporting her to the waiting van. She was buried in a simple pine casket according to her wishes. There is a wonderful satisfaction in caring and taking responsibility for your loved ones who have passed on!
Thank you, Sara, for helping us with this experience!"

“ We are so comforted to know that we could return my mother to the mountains she loved and bury her in a natural way that will enrich the land and our memories forever. We planted a purple-flowering garden over her grave site. It was her favorite color. We feel deep gratitude to Sara Williams who helped us start and see this journey through. ”
“ It is a small and beautiful world where miracles abound. How grateful I am for the many turns and twists that led me to you; for the gift of having a trusted mama lead me through the care and preparation of my own mama; for the healing and holy work that you enabled our hands and hearts to move through together. Thank you, not only for your time, your expertise, your generosity, and your love, but also for the deep comfort and joy you made possible during this time of grief. ”
