Reporting back on coaching a dying friend for a final speech

You might recall that another speaker coach wrote to me recently asking "How do I help a dying friend with a speech about her life and illness?" and asking for help and ideas from The Eloquent Woman's readers.

Several other speaker coaches weighed in with 7 ideas and resources for preparing a speech for a dying friend,  and now the coach who requested those ideas has reported back on the results. She says:
My friend  and I were both challenged by this task, but it was pure joy  to see her pleasure when she succeeded.  I know how much she values the experience, and I can't thank you and your readers enough for your support and assistance in giving it to her. Without you it would not have been possible. I feel blessed by such generosity. Thank you all.
I add my thanks, again, as well--it is wonderful to have such a community for this kind of speaker support.
