      Lola is like a sunbeam on a very dark day! When my partner died suddenly Picaluna sent her and she guided me through the horrific time of planning Dave’s funeral. Because I hadn’t the chance to say goodbye I brought him home for a wake. Lola’s cooling plate enabled this and it was the best thing I did as when he had to leave me, I was ready to let him go. Our families and friends were able to spend time with him and got to know Lola during this grieving period. Everyone commented on how good a job Lola did as she was there but not intrusive, listening, laughing, talking, comforting and caring about how people were coping. Even 5 months down the track Lola was checking how I was doing! If you choose Lola’s services in your time of grief be assured you will be in the best of hands.

      After my father died, I remember feeling overwhelmed trying to organise a funeral home, funeral and cremation, as well as contacting loved ones to notify them of my father’s death. It was a very stressful time. And I had feelings of regret for many years, wishing that it all had been handled differently but not knowing what that would look like. Years later I began to think about how we could make it more of a personal experience, when it was my mother’s time. In the weeks leading to my mother’s death a close friend told me about death doulas and about the support and service they provide. My mother and I discussed the options available and felt it was what we were looking for. So when the time came we contacted Lola on short notice as my mother’s death was unexpected at the time. She was very professional and dropped everything to be with us in our time of need. Lola promptly went to the hospital and organised my mother’s transport to our home. Afterwards, Lola came to our home with her table and cooling plate before my mother arrived. She helped me wash and dress my mother in a peaceful, respectful manner with gentle music playing in the background and aromatherapy oils filling the air. It was very healing for me and it felt like a natural extension of caring for my mother in death. I felt very honoured to be able to do this for her. Lola’s caring and calm guidance was instrumental to the whole experience. We all felt very supported and didn’t have to think about making arrangements with funeral homes etc. There was no stress, as Lola organised everything while we could be free to grieve, be with our family and most importantly spend time with my mother. Other family members came to spend time with my mother speaking to her and playing her favourite music. They all thanked me for bringing her home and sharing this special experience with them. We chose a beautiful wicker coffin from the brochure Lola showed us and it was perfect. We got to weave flowers through the wicker and it looked lovely. We loved our mother very much and we feel such peace knowing that we gave her such loving care whilst she was alive and in death. I highly recommend Lola to help you and your loved one throughout this process for both her professionalism and her warmth. She is truly passionate about her role as a doula and it is evident in all the little extra things that she did for us and my mother, that showed us that she really cared.

      The farewell of a dear friend that I attended recently, which was guided by Lola, was a very beautiful ceremony. The practical aspects of the process which Lola organised, I felt, enabled my friend’s partner to have a level of control and nurturing, which would otherwise been impossible. Lola was sensitive , gentle and a warm presence which provided comfort for me and probably for all who were present. The rituals she performed were moving and appropriate. I would definitely recommend her as someone who can provide what people need in the time of immediate bereavement.
