beautiful words for special days
As you will be aware, during the current Covid-19 crisis, funeral services have been restricted to just a few close family members only, or in some cases it is more appropriate to have no service at all.
Even so, there are still ways that you can say "Goodbye" to a loved one that are meaningful, dignified and respectful, even as everyone follows the necessary rules of social isolation.
The process of organising and planning a funeral itself is an important part of the grieving process. It gives you the space to focus on your loved one by thinking of the life they had, everything that you shared and what they really meant to you. Thinking about the words that you would use to talk about them, about the music they loved and the stories you want to share, all help you remember them clearly.
Bringing together family and friends to have that chance to say goodbye gives comfort to you all. So in these unusual times, I have created a guide to share ideas about different ways to honour your loved one and pay tribute to their life whether is is through personal "at home" times of remembrance, though online services, or by planning a larger memorial service for later.
