Funeral or memorial ceremonies are important in meeting the social and emotional needs of survivors. They can be important rituals to help us acknowledge a death. Ceremonies can help people express pain. Rituals can help us remember. Ceremonies can help people heal. In Language of the Heart, author Carolyn Pogue offers stories and resources for creating meaningful and healing ceremonies. The book answers the questions many of us have about financial and legal matters, living wills and ethical wills, organ donation, and what to expect at a funeral home. It also contains sample memorial ceremony outlines, prayers, and suggested scripture readings. Includes unique resources for situations when there has been a death of a child, when the relationship was unloving, and when the death was a suicide.
