Making It Yours: Preparing the Best Finale Ever

Bruce Wadd

Is there a way of preparing for your death with confidence and calmness? Is it possible to reach beyond the grave? Can there be blessings for others even when you are no longer there? There can be wonderful, and unexpected, blessings in the process of saying goodbye. While acknowledging the powerful emotions of sadness and grief, Bruce Wadd, ex-teacher and chaplain, offers a farewell model that can bring healing, togetherness, honour and strength to loss. In Making It Yours, Bruce shares snippets of wisdom gained from his work as a funeral celebrant. With the premise of no rules, you’ll find some surprisingly innovative ideas and out-of-the-box suggestions for making your farewell suit you as an individual. Rather than settling for a formulaic ritual that reflects little of who you are or the life you have lived, make the ceremony yours, even though you won’t be present. Making It Yours explores some of the historic, current and future trends influencing the funeral industry, and offers new ways of looking at life’s most fundamental event. The second half of the book overflows with practical advice, focusing on planning and organisation. But it doesn’t stop there. With a holistic approach and empathy, Bruce explores the emotions and spirituality of this unique time. But at the heart of these words are the real-life stories, told with great personal warmth, of people farewelling those they love. More than just a practical and invaluable guide to your journey of farewell, Making It Yours shows what ‘farewell’ can truly mean in the twenty-first century.
