A Eulogy is a "word picture" of a diseased Soul's life here on Earth. A Eulogy can be written and given by one person or it can be a "shared Eulogy" between two people. In a shared Eulogy two people can work together to cover different aspects of the loves one's life. Typically, a Eulogy may last anywhere from 5-20 minutes.
In times of particular grief, the bereaved may seek additional Eulogy support from a Reverend or Celebrant. Rev. Lee's empathetic connection with families allows her to assist the family in highlighting the most essential and revered moments of the departed's life; additionally providing not only Eulogy support, but also a therapeutic and comforting environment for the grieving process.
Here are some simple guidelines to assist in remembering the details of a loved one's life.

Finally, if you find sharing the Eulogy overwhelming, opening the Eulogy to stories from guests can be very helpful and comforting. Remember you cannot do this wrong. Relax, take your time, have a drink of water nearby and know you are loved.
