    Rev. Dr. Heather Vais will be conducting your service.  If you have your own minister that you would like to be involved in your service, it is normally not a problem, but this would need to be discussed with our minister prior to approval.  Please forward your minister’s information to us, such as denomination, church, etc., prior to approval.  However, our minister will be present to oversee and offer any assistance should you need it (her fees will still apply).
