You're reeling from the news of the death …

And you've been asked to give a eulogy …

Can you find the right words?

If you're like most people, you're feeling that this is the hardest speech you'll ever write. So it's normal to feel anxious and stressed. 

I know what you're going through. I was honored when my brother-in-law asked me to give the eulogy for my sister, Toni … and yet so afraid I wouldn't do a good job.

So I drew upon my years of experience as a professional writer facing deadlines, and took some simple steps to get started (which I'll be teaching you in this eBook).

The words began to come to me. It was almost like taking dictation. 

And on the day of the funeral, as I stood up to speak the words I'd written, I felt such a sense of peace and love for my sister. Afterwards, so many people asked for a copy of the eulogy and gave me heartfelt hugs.

I will be forever thankful that I broke through my fears that day.

Since Toni's funeral, I've written and delivered eulogies for my cousin Bob, my uncle Allan, my Dad, and several friends.

And for a while I offered a eulogy-writing service, which gave me the opportunity to ghost-write eulogies for people all over North America.

Now I've gathered my best advice into this easy-to-follow plan, with 5 simple steps … from how to gather your "building blocks" to how to rehearse your delivery.

Once you know what to do — and in what order — you can begin to relax and your words will start to flow.

Would it help you to model eulogies others have written?

You'll get 15 eulogies (written by me and some of my customers) for inspiration.

Are you afraid your voice will break when you stand up to speak?

See the section "Deliver Your Eulogy with Confidence" for simple, practical tips to relax you.

Are you really stuck, and running out of time?

Head straight to my template — "The Emergency Instant Eulogy Writer"— and create a simple eulogy just by filling in the blanks.

You'll be glad you got this eBook now, because you'll find it easier to write the eulogy, you'll lessen your anxiety, and you'll feel more confident delivering the eulogy.

You'll get your eBook within minutes

“I felt so incredible ....”

“Your ebook about writing eulogies was a huge help to me. I used it more for how to prepare to write it, but I just wrote from my heart and didn't follow any format. I also loved what you wrote about relaxing during the ceremony, deep breathing, etc.; I really needed to follow that advice because I was so nervous!

I had a copy of your ebook with me at all times that weekend; I had it bound at Kinko's with a plastic cover and double sided so it was beautiful....

Afterwards, everyone wanted a copy or asked me to email it to them. I had brought a few extra copies and people were passing them around at the wake! It was overwhelming really, but I felt so incredible that I could actually do something to comfort people during such a sad time.

Thank you so much for your help Sheila; I couldn't have done it without you! Sincerely,

Rosemary Barber,
Pittsburgh, PA ”


“I was actually able to sleep last night ....”

“Thanks, Sheila. It's a beautiful book and very thought provoking. Your book has already helped me to relax immensely. I was actually able to sleep last night when I couldn't the night before....

Your book gave me the courage to be free spirited and compassionate in my memories of my very good friend.”

“it is truly a gift ....”

“I can tell that this book came from your heart, and I appreciate the follow up....

As I worked on the eulogy I felt like you were right there with me. Thank you for putting so much of yourself into the book. It is truly a gift to all of us who are struggling with this process.”
