Legacy projects

Embark on a journey of life review and reminiscence. Photo collages, memoirs, life review, and art projects are just a few of the ways one can be remembered. On Bright Wings guides your loved one to an expression of self that will be treasured for generations to come.

Sitting vigil

If requested, a trained End-of-Life Doula from On Bright Wings will sit with the one who is dying to bring comfort and to ensure that they do not die alone.

After-death care of the body

There is healing power in the rituals of after-death care. From cleaning and preparing the body prior to removal, to creating a sacred ceremony to honor the deceased, On Bright Wings provides expert guidance throughout to help the grieving process, begin healing, and provide a beautiful memory to comfort you after your loved one is gone.

Home funeral guidance

From sitting vigil to the deeply personal home funeral, On Bright Wings will guide you to a sacred and communal experience that nourishes the soul as it honors the life and death of your loved one. Home funerals are an affordable alternative to the often expensive and impersonal offerings of traditional services.
