“The author, a certified grief counselor, combines academic expertise . . . with her own and others’ personal experiences in this helpful resource. . . . [She] thoughtfully directs grief-stricken readers through the steps to create a moving, truthful speech.” —Kirkus Indie Review 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. Dr. Hewett shares how eulogies can be written at the time of death, before a loved one has died and shared with him or her, and even years later as a way to remember and honor an important person in our lives. This book walks readers through the writing process to help them develop powerful and personal eulogies based on time-honored strategies. It also teaches readers how to deliver the eulogy effectively. Good Words is full of useful information about eulogies, such as: how and when to include children in the ceremony, how to write eulogies for difficult situations like suicide or strained relationships, 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. This book offers contemporary twists on classical eulogy writing, including using websites and YouTube to deliver the good words. Like no other book on the market, Good Words assists readers with writing their own good words of praise, blessing, and honor upon the death of a loved one.
