About Me

Owner and Author

Hello and welcome.

I’m sorry for your loss.

You have been asked to present a Eulogy and you have been resourceful in coming to the web.

If you are like me, then you know that this will be the most difficult speech you will ever present.

I remember the shock and turmoil I felt when my Mom died and didn’t know if I would be able to present her Eulogy without breaking down and crying in front of everyone!

As a long time writer, I know the importance of words. However, I had never written a Eulogy before and it never even occurred to me that there would be assistance for Eulogy writing. I’m not sure that I would have had the energy, time or resources to go outside my home to find help writing a Eulogy.

Now, with the everyday involvement of the Internet in our lives, the creation and accessibility of an instantly downloadable Eulogy Writing Guide is a feasibility, and more importantly, a reality.

Since that time, I have written Eulogies for Mothers and Fathers, Sisters and Brothers. I’ve been able to honor Husbands and Wives, Aunts and Uncles, Sons, Daughters, Co-Workers, Friends, Neighbors, Lovers and Partners and Grandmothers and Grandfathers with Eulogies composed personally for them.

I have combined my personal experience with loss with my writing abilities, and have created tools to now help you create a Eulogy you will be proud to present.

I hope you will feel the same!

My 78-year-old mother, Grace, died after a so-called brief illness. I say so called because when we were going through it, seven days seemed like an eternity. We produced a living will at my Mother’s request and provided it to the hospital, thinking, “There, it’s OK. She will go with no artificial means or extreme measures or invasions of her body. She will go in peace and in dignity”. However, extreme measures were taken when she had coded, and she was brought back. In…
