Stibbards & Sons

Funeral Directors in Eastwood

Continently situated between our Leigh-on-Sea and Hockley offices, we have been assisting bereaved families in Eastwood for over 100 years. With a long association with many of the old Eastwood families and the local parish churches of St David’s and St Laurence, S. Stibbards & Sons have been privileged to offer assistance in times of need to this community.

This includes offering our clients advice about anything they are unsure of to make sure they can arrange a funeral service that celebrates the life of their loved one. This can include giving you guidance on how to compose a Eulogy as it can often seem like a daunting task. However, it is a beautiful way to participate in a loved one’s funeral service. It is an opportunity to acknowledge and speak about the importance of their life, together with reminding those present at the funeral service of the legacy they have left behind.

When writing a Eulogy, the most important thing to remember is to focus on the life of the deceased, rather than letting your own anxiety take over. If you can focus on your loved one and the life they lived, then you will be able to write a heartfelt tribute. Don’t feel like you need to make sense of your loved one’s death. Instead, you should theme the Eulogy around some of the best stories and memories you have and then tie them into a somewhat consolidated piece.

S. Stibbards & Sons understand that everyone is different and have unique ideas when it comes to writing a Eulogy for their loved one. That’s why we are more than happy to provide you with any guidance you may need.
