“what we once enjoyed and deeply loved we can never lose, for all that we love deeply becomes part of us”



I am excited to be designing my first ever Dying with Grace online course, entitled “designing your BEST LAST chapter”
which will be available in the fall of 2023. 

Watch for details on my new website livinganddyingwithgrace.com, launching later this year! 

Every life is unique and every farewell is different. What matters most when we honour lives, is that it is authentic, true to the memory of the one who lived, and meaningful to the ones who are still living.

What I do at Dying with Grace, is provide both event planning and writing services. I work with each client to provide a customized and personal farewell event, providing only the elements that are needed and nothing more.


I have provided a growing list  of resources to help you design your own event, if you prefer to work on your own.


I can take on a little or a lot of the event components; farewell location/venue, program, catering, flowers, gifts, music, written/printed pieces, etc.

I work at many known and local venues but can also plan an event at home, on a beach, or in the woods – you decide on the place that has the most meaning.


As a professional writer I can offer writing
services including eulogies & obituaries, stories of lives to be shared, programs for service, invitations, thank you cards, or newspaper/online announcements.


I can share ideas on how to personalize the event, incorporate faith, culture, ritual, and family traditions, and can source unique and special event items, to produce meaningful moments.


Our 2019 and 202  Deathly Matters Conferences SOLD OUT. 
We are so grateful to all who contributed to the community conversation. 

I continue to contribute to podcasts, events, and projects
that encourage open, honest, and heart centred conversations around doing death better.  
Stay tuned, more good work in the works! 

If you would like to work together, I invite you to be in touch without obligation.

Linda approaches every event with integrity, grace and compassion, and each detail is executed to perfection.  Her calm demeanor, organization and genuine wish to help people is demonstrated through every interaction.  I can honestly say that there is no one I would trust more with a meaningful event than Linda.
