Customers' Funeral Planning Experiences:

Last week I ordered your book, Planning for a Celebration of Life. I didn't know where to begin and it has provided many wonderful ideas, readings, etc. in helping to plan my father's memorial service. Thanks for writing it!

What a great book. I never would have guessed there were so many unique and easy ideas ways to make a service special and personal. I loved the idea of a memory table... great book and a quick and easy read, especially during a difficult time. The fact that it's downloadable is a real plus.

I've attended too many funerals where I left even more depressed than when I went in. I felt like there had to be a better way, a more contemporary option for planning a service. This book gave me the direction I needed to create the perfect ceremony for a dear friend who was very creative and had a lot of character. The book is a quick, easy read. I just needed some ideas in a simple format with plenty of pictures and that's what I got. I strongly recommend it.

When it came time to plan my brother's service, I had so few options. I loved the section about how to keep his memory alive. We even decided to do a couple of the suggestions. This book is concise and well organized. You'll be glad you read this book.
