What Our Families Are Saying About Us…

Thank you Yasemin and Rite of Passage Funerals for helping us when we needed it most. We are forever grateful for your love, compassion and guidance at a time when we felt completely lost. You showed us that funerals don’t have to follow a formula, that they can be different, and beautiful and we now look back on dad’s service with a smile. Thank you!

Kathryn, Gold Coast

We decided that Rite of Passage Funerals was the best choice for us after speaking with Yasemin over the phone. Her love, compassion and genuine sincerity were immediately apparent and we knew she was the right person to plan our beloved Pop’s service. She helped us through the whole process and planned a funeral service we’ll never forget. We highly recommend her.
