Hey everybody, it's Aubrey with eulogiesbyaubrey.com. I just wanted to pop on here for a quick little update. This is my monthly vlog; this is going to be a little quick video but I just wanted to give a little update to everybody.
My family and I are going to be moving in a few days from Fort Worth to a town called Waxahachie. It's about 50 minutes south, southeast of Fort Worth or so. Eulogies by Aubrey, my business, nothing is changing with that except my office in a corner is moving to a different office in a corner.
You might have noticed a little pop up message on my website, eulogiesbyaubrey.com. It says something like, Due to personal time constraints, that I'll be taking a break til October 1st. That's just so that I have time to take care of the orders I do get, because I'm still getting orders. If you need help writing a eulogy, for your loved one, please still contact me, please still place your order, I can still help you. I just put that message on there - real life, just being honest - just so that I don't get too overwhelmed between work and moving.
Did I say this? We're going to be moving Sunday. Today is Thursday, so give me four days. If you don't have four days, and you need help with a eulogy, I'm still here for you. My WiFi will be set up till Saturday night at the old house, so we're going to get it done for you if you need my help, so don't worry about that.
Besides that, well that is it. We're just moving. If anyone's ever moved, you know it's real crazy for about week or two. We're excited. I'll show you my new office setup, wherever it ends up being at the new place. Anyways, I hope everyone's doing good. I hope everyone's having a lovely beginning of fall. It's getting a little bit less hot over here in Texas. I think we've been in the...by late afternoon, it's already in the 70s, so it's super nice. I'm almost cold when it's in the 70's; I'm so used to it being in the 100's or whatever, a sauna down in here.
Anyways, this is a super fast video compared to my other ones. I hope everyone's been having a good week, whatever stage of life you're in, whatever season you're going through. I wish everybody the best, and I guess I'll sign off here.
Just wanted to share a little Frequently Asked Questions update with everyone! I am always adding more info into Eulogies by Aubrey's FAQ tab, and decided it was a good idea to compend it all here for you to see in blog form. Let's take a look.
How much do you charge for a eulogy, and are there any additional fees?
I charge a one-time fee of $125 for an approximately 1000-word eulogy. There are no additional fees and any revisions you require are included in this charge.
How do I pay and when?
I am able to accept all major cards as well as PayPal. I do request payment before I begin work on your eulogy, simply to protect against those few who would take advantage of the reverse process.
How long will it take for me to speak my eulogy?
Depending on how much information you provide, your finished eulogy will contain approximately 1000 words and should generally take between six and eight minutes to deliver. If you would prefer a longer or shorter eulogy, please let me know.
How long will it take for you to finish my eulogy?
I will work to complete your order and have it sent back to you within 48 hours. If you need it sooner or within a certain time frame, please let me know.
How will you get my completed eulogy to me?
I will send your eulogy to the email address that you provide me on the order form. I will send it as a message and also as an attachment so that you may print/utilize it at your convenience. If you do not receive your eulogy within 48 hours, please check your spam folder. It will be sent from email@example.com.
Can I see one of your writing samples?
Yes. Click here to be taken to my Eulogy Examples page.
I've already written out parts of my eulogy, but need help putting it all together and making it sound good. Can you help with that?
Absolutely! Many of my clients already have all of their thoughts on paper and simply need me to make it "speech" worthy. If this is you, send me what you have, and I'll take it from there.
My loved one has not yet passed away, but it is imminent. I'm thinking of going ahead and starting the brainstorming process for their eulogy. Can you help?
Yes. It's actually a fairly common - and even smart, I would say - move to try and get your thoughts down (things that you would like represented in your eulogy) ahead of your loved one's passing. Just let me know if this is your situation, and I am more than willing to assist you every step of the way.
I have suffered the loss of a child. Are you still able to help?
Yes. Please note that the form on my Order page is generally for adult loss. If you have suffered miscarriage, infant or child loss, please let me know in a message here. I have a special eulogy order form for you that I will send to you.
I recently lost my pet and plan to hold a service in their memory. Would you be willing to write a eulogy for them?
I would be honored. Our pets are our family and losing any one of them would be the same as losing a family member. Let me know in a message here, and I will send you a separate order form.
At this time I cannot bring myself to fill out the eulogy order form. Can you still help?
Absolutely... I understand that there are times when grief knows no words. There is an art to writing quality work with little information, and I'm confident in my ability to do so. Fill out what you can of the order form, send it to me and I will let you know if any additional information is needed. Or if you are more comfortable, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you prefer to speak with me by phone, please leave your number in your email and I will contact you as soon as possible.
I am not able to pay your fee right now, but I still need help with a eulogy. What can I do?
I am very aware that not everyone has the means to hire a professional writer to assist them with their eulogy, or even family or friends who are able to help. But I believe that every loved one who has passed on deserves a quality eulogy. So I offer anyone who needs it a free eulogy template. Click here for more information. If you have questions or are in need of further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.
What are your hours of operation?
I am available 24/7/365*. For nighttime orders and email inquiries, please expect a response from me no later than the very next morning.
*It is rare, but sometimes due to personal time constraints, I will need to step away from business for a short time. During these times, there will be a pop-up on my website letting you know, and you will still be able to contact me with any questions or concerns you have.
Can I request a refund?
I cannot provide a refund for a completed eulogy. However, if you have just paid and have decided not to use Eulogies by Aubrey, and in the case I have not already begun extensive work on your order, I would be happy to provide you with a full refund, no questions asked.
