"God gave us memory so we may have roses in December" (J.M. Barrie)
In the midst of the turmoil created by a sudden death, arises (among a thousand other things) the question of the eulogy to be delivered during the ceremony:
- Who will have the best information about the deceased ?
- Who will have the ability to urgently draft a death notice (invitation and press announcement) as well as a proper speech highlighting him or her and avoiding the embarrassment of clumsy writing ?
- Who will know how to express themselves in public (and in front of cameras) in a climate of intense emotion ?
THANKS TO THIS SERVICE, THE FAMILY AND THE PROFESSIONAL
ENTOURAGE NO LONGER HAVE THIS CONCERN.
NOW THEY ARE SUPPORTED DURING THIS INTENSE TIME.
