The reflection is usually more personal about the deceased, speaking of values and virtues. It should be prepared beforehand and written out. It is requested that a copy be given to Elaine LaFollette no later than the day before the funeral. The person giving the reflection should be aware of the sacredness of the occasion and the Church setting. Please limit remarks to a 4-5 minute maximum.
