Funeral Sermon for a Teen Suicide By Rev. Beth Johnston- a good example of how one might set out such a funeral 01/11
Funeral sermon for a Sudden Infant Death By Rev. Richard J. Fairchild - perhaps a little direct for some families - but a brave sermon addressing many commonissues at such a time 01/11
Funeral Service For A Young suicide victim in his 20's (chronic depression) By Rev. Richard J. Fairchild Funeral service, homily, tribute, and interment. a lot of family perspectives woven in. 01/11
