Why Good Words?
The eulogy. It’s not about the bowling scores. It’s about who our loved ones were—the human qualities, virtues, and noble deeds that made them people of value in the world.
Good Words: Memorializing Through A Eulogy teaches how a eulogy can help us in difficult times of grief. This book walks readers through the writing process to help them develop powerful and personal eulogies. It also helps readers learn how to deliver the eulogy effectively. Good Words is full of useful information about eulogies like how and when to include children in the ceremony, how to revise and polish a eulogy after the funeral or memorial ceremony, and how various religious perspectives from a wide variety of spiritual traditions might influence the eulogy.
Good Words is perfect for both the individual writing or for writing workshop groups.
