funerals

 

 

We are so grateful to Clarissa and the Passaggi Association for the intimate and emotional ceremony she conducted commemorating our little baby. Through her words we were able to express our deepest feelings. (Sara e Nicola)

 

It was a beautiful ceremony and we couldn’t have wished for anything better to say goodbye to Mum. (Federico)

 

The ceremony was beautifully touching.  It was lan extraordinarily rendered fresco of L’s life, her work, her family, her relationship with me, which kept everyone in the room win an emotion filled silence. (Paolo)

 

We cannot find words to describe how grateful we are to Clarissa for making such a sad occasion into a comforting moment, with the knowledge that such a ceremony, in our garden, with food and a glass of wine at the end of it, was just what Dad would have wanted. (Sara)

 

We had a most beautiful and touching ceremony thanks to you. Like you said in your speech – where ever we look out on the sea, hear the waves rolling on the shore, feel the warm sunshine on our face, we will remember him. No matter where we are. We all are very grateful to you. How you made this ceremony so warm and personal, how you picked the correct words and paid attention to everyone, also to the children. (Eija)

Once again, on behalf of all the family, I would like to thank you Sarah for your precious help. Thanks to your experience, humanity and ability to understand and express our sentiments so well the funeral was perfect and will stay in our hearts forever. Everyone who came complimented us on the ceremony. It is such a joy to feel that the life of someone so special like our father was celebrated as beautifully as he deserved. (Sabrina, Marzia & Valentina)

We found an association, Passaggi, that helped us hold a dignified and fitting ceremony. In fact we strongly recommend them for their professionalism and competence. (Marco)

Thanks to the Association Passaggi we were able to say goodbye to our Dad with a civil ceremony that was touching, very personal, and appreciated even by our  friends with religious beliefs. We are really very grateful. (Giulia, Lorenzo and mamma)

Meeting Clarissa was a wonderful relief. We were in slightly unknown territory trying to organise a funeral service without a religious format. Clarissa was warm, helpful, listened to us attentively, and ultimately hosted a service that we all felt truly did my late father justice. We spent a few hours together when she came to our family home, and we instantly felt like we were in good hands. I honestly can’t imagine what we would have done without her. (Lisa)

I thank Passaggi for having helped me to organise a good send-off for my almost centenarian father. Above all I would like to bring attention to Clarissa’s professionalism and sensitivity. After having spoken with us in our family home, she managed to express our feelings perfectly and to describe very well the unique character that was my father. (Maria Letizia)

I’m writing to send you some feedback about Clarissa, who provided the funeral service in Rome for my father a couple of months ago. Meeting Clarissa was a wonderful relief. We were in slightly unknown territory trying to organise a funeral service without a religious format. Clarissa was warm, helpful, listened to us attentively, and ultimately hosted a service that we all felt truly did my late father justice. We spent a few hours together when she came to our family home, and we instantly felt like we were in good hands. I honestly can’t imagine what we would have done without her. Friends who were present on the day thought she was a family member or an old friend, as she managed to really capture the essence of my father, and of our family. One of my father’s work colleagues, Peter, said that it was ‘the most touching funeral service I’ve been to- and trust me, I’ve been to a lot’.I hope others who might find themselves in a similar position are able to get in touch with Passaggi. (Lisa)

A wonderful tribute that contributed greatly to the warmth and touching atmosphere of yesterday’s commemoration. Everyone there wanted me to tell you. (Donato)

Their approach was very sensitive and professional. (Lorenzo)
