How It Works
Before we talk, I’ll ask that you fill out a short form with factual information – name, date of birth, etc. just so we don’t have to spend time on those things during our call. Don’t feel bad if you don’t know the answer to every question. The information from this form is helpful, but will not make or break your eulogy. If you would like to see the questions in advance so you can prepare, you can download a printable list of the questions here.
Once you fill out your form, you’ll be asked to pay via credit card or bank transfer. I do ask for payment upfront to protect myself from the few people who might try to avoid payment after the work is done.
Schedule our call
The next step is to schedule our call. You’ll be able to choose an hour-long time slot from my calendar and leave your preferred phone number so I can reach you. I like to schedule an hour in case we need it – although it doesn’t always take that long.
On the day of our interview, I will give you a call and we will talk about your loved one. Who they were, their life stories, their accomplishments, what was important to them, and how they would like to be remembered. I do record our call so that I can direct all of my attention to our conversation, rather than frantically taking notes while we talk. The recording is deleted after the eulogy is complete.
Within 24 hours of our call, I will deliver your eulogy via email. Please look it over carefully for any errors or areas you feel are inaccurate or not quite right. I ask that you get back to me via email with any corrections that same day so that I have time to make the changes and deliver a final version to you the following day. The entire process from call to completion should take no longer than 48 hours.
I will send your final eulogy via email – within the email, as a Word document attachment (in case you want to make any additional changes yourself or if you want to format it a particular way to make it easier to read) and as a PDF that you can share with friends and family who may want to print it as a keepsake.
Before you begin
Just press the WORK WITH ME button at the top of the website or click here to start the process.
I charge a one-time fee of $400. Payment is taken upfront to protect myself from the few people who might try to avoid payment after the work is done. You will make your payment via credit card or bank transfer online after you submit the information-gathering form.
Your final eulogy will be approximately 1,000 words and will take around seven minutes to deliver. You will receive your eulogy as a Word document (in case you’d like to make any additional changes or adjust the font size), and as a PDF that you can share with friends and family who may want to print it as a keepsake.
See the “How it Works” section above for a full explanation, but you can expect to have your final eulogy ready within 48 hours of our interview call.
After you start the process
I’m sorry, but I cannot provide a refund for a completed eulogy. Many hours are spent composing each eulogy, so I cannot offer a refund for work that was already done. If, however, you submit the online form and reconsider before I begin working, I can give you your money back. Please email me directly and I will be happy to issue a refund.
It’s important that we have enough time to discuss your loved one’s life and stories during our call. Gathering names (and spellings), dates, and facts would take up too much time over the phone. If you prefer to see the questions beforehand, click here for a preview of the questionnaire.
Yes. Once you receive your eulogy, please look it over carefully for an errors or areas you feel are inaccurate or not quite right. I ask that you get back to me via email with any corrections that same day so that I have time to make the changes and deliver a final version to you the following day.
