Hi, my name is Crystal, and I love tradition and ritual, but I also love novel things and creating something special just for one person. When my mum died a few years ago, I decided that I wanted to write her funeral service – not just my eulogy, but the whole service.

This blog has ideas and tips for writing your own service as well as a range of other things. I hope it helps.
