As the fashion industry mourns the loss of one of the biggest and most influential designers of modern fashion, Alexander McQueen, news comes that he, like many other celebs, have called on Psychic for help and guidance over the years.
McQueen, who sadly committed suicide on 11th February 2010, had lost his Mother just nine days prior to his death, an event which is considered to be a leading factor in his decision to take his own life. Along with this, his confidante had committed suicide some three years before and it was at this point that he called on the services of a Psychic to help him deal with his personal problems and mourning. McQueen is said to have been very troubled that she had taken her own life and was seeking consolation and answers, which the Psychic managed to help with at that point in his life.
It’s not just Alexander McQueen that has sought advice and guidance from Psychics. Katie Price aka Jordon, has admitted that she consulted with a Psychic, receiving Psychic Readings to find out insights into her future. Other famous celebrities that have enrolled the help of Psychics are Uma Thurman, Robert DeNiro, and George Michael to name but a few.
People seek the help and guidance of Psychics for all sorts of reasons; they will come from all walks of life with unique experiences, feelings of grief, loss, despair, anxiety and a need for help. Psychics can offer genuine and insightful readings for people to try and overcome all sorts of anguish they may be feeling.

Let’s face it; no one likes to think about dying, we are all going to live forever right? You know the answer to that one! Just like other things in life such as dreaded taxes, it is an unavoidable eventuality and although you may not want to consider the reality, maybe you should. It may seem a bit bleak choosing between burial and cremation, Gravestones and Headstones, Flowers or Donations, but wouldn’t it be easier for you to decide on the way you want your funeral than leave it to others?
There are several reasons why pre planning your funeral is a good idea. For starters, it will greatly reduce the stress on your family and friends. Your death will be a highly emotional time as it is, let alone when they then have to make hard decisions regarding what you may have wanted or not wanted. This leads me on to another reason you should pre plan your funeral. In doing so, you will make your wishes clearly known and these will be easily followed rather than guessed, giving you the funeral you wanted and everything that goes with that such as the type of Headstones you would like. Pre paying could also save you significant amount of money and it will guarantee that your family do not have to pay more for the funeral than you have allowed, thus relieving the financial burden on loved ones. The other element is that it will show your family that you cared enough not to leave them with extra worries both emotionally and financially when it comes to your death.
Before you ask whether it is too early to pre plan your funeral. The answer is No. It is never too early and in many ways, pre paying for your funeral, as mentioned above, can often end up being a very smart financial decision, eroding the power of inflation.

Or you could even consider making something yourself!
When a loved one dies there is a lot to deal with, not only emotionally but logistically too. From sourcing the right Gravestones to picking the right flowers, a lot needs to be organized in often a very short period of time. Along with the logistics, thought and time is needed to prepare the funeral ceremony and many people choose to do a eulogy, which needs to be a well constructed, thoughtful speech of the loved one, mainly consisting of his/her life history and details of their friends, family, work, interests etc.
The most touching eulogies are written from the heart and will paint a good picture of the deceased loved one, who they were, what they did and what they enjoyed about life. It is a good idea to talk to family members and close friends and gather information and stories that they have held dear over the years to include. The most important things to include in the eulogy is their age, family and other close relations, education, work, career, hobbies and special interests, places the person lived and special accomplishments.
When you have gathered all the information and know the stories you are going to talk about then its time to start writing. Make sure you write it as you will speak it, don’t get too bogged down with formalities, remember this is a celebration of someone’s life and needs to come from the heart. When you have written it, go over it, refine it, and edit it until you are happy. The next step is to rehearse it, only then will you know whether you are truly happy with the flow and structure of it. Finalise the copy and then keep rehearsing until you are comfortable with how you deliver it. You don’t need to learn it from memory but having a strong idea of the structure and order will help you when you get up and speak. Remember that nerves and emotion will play a large part so you need to be confident in knowing your eulogy. The eulogy can often help people when choosing the Epitaph on Memorial Headstones too.
