Whether you have a loved one that wanted the quietest of funerals, or none at all, or the wildest razzmatazz with all the punk rock songs chosen, in order, the reasons why we have a funeral service are as diverse as we are ourselves.

I love the writing game. It gets me bouncing out of bed, and dragging my feet at night when I have to finish up for the day. I started at The Bendigo Advertiser as the Creative Services Coordinator, and after many changes, I have ended up with a great 12 years with ACM (love that long service leave too as my secret gardens need tending sometimes). Working from home is tops and I hope I have many more productive times ahead.
