Just as in writing wedding vows, there are no limits to honoring a loved one either.  You can mix elements of a certain religion or faith, or leave faith out of a service all together.  If you want to involve people in the ceremony, pick two or three people to do a reading.  A reading can be poetry, a biblical passage or an original writing about the deceased (encourage a loved one to write a poem).

If you and your loved one resonate with a particular religion, some add elements such as Catholic traditions to a service.  Adding elements like specific biblical passages, or prayers is a beautiful way to honor tradition without having to be limited.

Music is a vital part of any ceremony.  Playing an original song, gospel, a favorite song of the diseased, or a friend playing and instrument are wonderful options.

If you need guidance writing a Eulogy, see my Eulogy worksheet on this blog.

With Love,

Rev. Lee
