Summary

Summary

A collection of poetry and prose appropriate for reading at a funeral or memorial service. To assist the reader in finding a suitable passage, the book is divided into 11 chapters: there are tributes for mothers, fathers, children, spouses and soulmates, friends, siblings and other close relatives, soldiers and victims of war or violence, pets, and general readings appropriate for men, women, or any loved one. There are appendices listing resources and support organizations, and each selection is indexed by author, title, and first line. The index also references pieces by famous uses, such as in a film, novel, or celebrity's funeral, so readers can locate a passage they remember from its context.

Booklist Review

Selections are arranged under topics such as "Tributes to Mothers" and "Tributes to Animal Companions and Pets." Just the thing for those pesky reference problems that are the stuff of trivia files.
