Frequently Asked Questions
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.
Do you also offer obituary writing services?
Upon request, I offer a complimentary obituary for each eulogy order.
I have dyslexia or another disability that makes it difficult to read. Can you accommodate for my eulogy?
Absolutely. Simple fonts, larger text size, extra spacing, and/or changing the layout of your eulogy can all help to make it easier for you to read. I will work with you until we get it just right for you.
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?
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.
