Writing a Tribute

Why write a Eulogy or Tribute?

Every life is a tale to tell. The story that we leave behind needs to be told and passed on to generations to come. Everyone one of us have the ‘very dear to heart’ story that we would always share about one loved ones who have left us but yet live in our thoughts and in our hearts. The best way to share these stories is to get them imprinted as ‘written word’ to be read and cherished by generations to come. As these imprints will only help bring the best out of future generations as they help them be rooted in the values that makes life a memorable one.


Eulogy helps carry forward the goodness, as the best of the legacies that will be read, understood, followed, cherished and loved.
