In loving memory of Sophie and Eva


Sophie Hamer

On February 24, 2024, a very dear client of mine passed peacefully, with her family at her side. Sophie was a special client. She was my practicum client when I was studying for my Death Doula Certification, and after I received my certification I continued to work with her for another year. With the kind permission of Sophie’s family, I am sharing her obituary and photo. As a Death Doula, I think it is important to share our grief and sorrow. I have had many quiet, reflective moments since Sophie passed, and have had only happy memories. I would like to thank the Hamers for their confidence in me, and for the honour of serving their family.

Sophie’s obituary is a wonderful and loving tribute to a remarkable woman.

Sophie Helen Hamer – October 19, 1923 ~ February 24, 2024

Eva Meyers

On March 27, 2024 Eva Meyers left this world in peace. While I had only worked with her for two short months, I looked forward to every visit. We shared stories, watched the Crown together, and talked about art. I will remember Eva for her beautiful smile and rosy cheeks. I loved her for the strength of her self-advocacy and for her grace. Eva’s obituary illustrated a life well-lived, and full of love.
