For Open Sharing

User Rating: / 0

On behalf of the family, I’d like to thank you for your presence today, and for your words of comfort and acts of kindness during these days.  As we remember _______ today, in a few moments we’ll provide you with opportunity to share some brief thoughts about _________—maybe a word or two to describe his/her personality, perhaps a short story about his/her life, or maybe you would share something for which you will remember him/her.  You're welcome to come forward and use the podium, or you might find it more comfortable to stand and share right where you are.
