"Funeral services (and Celebrations of Life) allow the family and community to come together, express emotions, talk about that person and formally say good-bye through a proper ceremony."
PARAMUS, NJ, October 04, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Everywhere the COVID-19 has struck, regardless of race, culture or religion, ancient rituals to honor the dead and comfort the bereaved have been cut short or abandoned for fear of spreading the illness further. Pandemic restrictions have meant that many people have died or grieved alone. Inter-Faith (All-Faiths) Minister Reverend Oreste J. DAversa has written a book offering those who have lost loved ones a step-by-step process to write a memorial service titled "Write Your Own Funeral Service - Prepare and Deliver Your Own Funeral Service/Celebration of Life for Family Members, Friends and Loved Ones That Were Not Able to Receive a Proper Burial Service"
"Being an Inter-Faith (All-Faiths) Minister I am greatly concerned about all the people that have died from the COVID-19 Pandemic (at the time of this writing over 700,000 people in the United States and over 4,700,000 deaths worldwide). It is also reshaping many aspects of death, from the practicalities of handling infected bodies to meeting the spiritual and emotional needs of those left behind," says Reverend DAversa. "Funeral services (and Celebrations of Life) allow the family and community to come together, express emotions, talk about that person and formally say good-bye through a proper ceremony," he said.

Write Your Own Funeral Service offers a person with no background in writing a Funeral Service or a Celebration of Life the opportunity to write a memorable, respectful and heart felt ceremony remembering a loved one that they can deliver any place they choose.
