130114 My own eulogyAn interesting American website which allows you to record your own eulogy for your funeral (including pics and videos) so your relatives don’t have to work it out for themselves.

And you can tell the world how wonderful you were.

It also allows you to leave private messages, so you can slag off the relatives you don’t like.

Link to the website.

No doubt there are British or European equivalents, but this actually is presented fairly sensibly. It’s an example of how memorialisation is really important to many people. For social workers, it might be a useful way of getting people into a bit of advance planning for an important aspect of bereavement care
