A bereavement not only makes you sad, but often also speechless and then comes rather surprisingly. So many things have to be organized urgently, so many questions are still open. But how then can beautiful farewells be organized and the life achievements of the deceased be honored from the various perspectives of the family. I was grateful that I had already experienced Ms. Ruland at another funeral and learned to appreciate her human competence there, so that I could now approach her as well.
For our family, in this emotionally stressful phase, the joint review of the life of our dear deceased and the funeral oration delivered in a very personal way by Mrs. Ruland was very meaningful. Even if there was a hitch in the organization of the funeral, Mrs. Ruland was always there to provide professional support.
But now a little more precisely: A common conversation of the family with Mrs. Ruland was the basis for an unforgettable summary of the difficult and especially beautiful moments of a long life at the funeral service. She aptly summarized the unbelievably many individual aspects and different perspectives. There were no empty phrases in the funeral speech, there were no moments of boredom. And - it is so heartrendingly beautiful to smile even at a funeral service.
Finally, it should be noted that no one in the family could imagine a more fitting eulogy and no one a better eulogist than Mrs. Ruland.
