Review:

Remembrances and Celebrations is a memorable collection of 51 eulogies, 43 condolence letters, 49 elegies (poems)  and 102 epitaphs honoring the lives of many famous individuals.   Among the mourners and the mourned, you will recognize many names, such as: 

T. S. Eliot  Agatha Christie  Duke Ellington Dr. Martin Luther King
Ogden Nash Daniel Webster  Robert Kennedy Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
George Burns  Lawrence Olivier James Michener Thomas Jefferson
Jim Henson Ben Franklin John F. Kennedy Diana, Princess of Wales
C. S. Lewis Charles Dickens Abraham Lincoln George Bernard Shaw
Mozart John Whittier Emily Dickinson Ralph Waldo Emerson
Longfellow Noel Coward Edgar Allen Poe Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
King Hussein Winston Churchill Rev. Abernathy Edna St. Vincent Millay

Jill Werman Harris has selected many great examples of consolatory art capturing the essence of lives leaving this world.  You'll see how great writers and orators, along with ordinary folk of our time, have temporarily transformed their sorrow into words to comfort not only themselves, but grieving family and friends. 

Whether you are famous or not, creating a meaningful and sincere poem, condolence letter or eulogy can be very cathartic.  Writing can serve as the tool to verbalize your grief, releasing many powerful emotions.  Your honest, heartfelt and  personal tribute can become a joy and inspiration to others. Remembrances and Celebrations is a great reference full of concrete illustrations for personalizing the story of your loved one or expressing your loss.  Consider this book a "must read" before you commemorate the next  remembrance anniversary for your loved ones .
