How To Write A Eulogy

By Jim Parker

A Eulogy is a speech used in funerals. The Eulogy gives an outlet for family and close friends to come together to share memories of the deceased with each other. A Eulogy will include details such as

- A brief history of the person who has deceased – Other details like family, friends, work etc. – Significant memoires of the person who has passed away – Some reading that pertains with an aspect of the deceased’s life history. Scriptures, anecdotes, work of the deceased person, etc.

A Eulogy must be given from the heart with the utmost sincerity while delivering it. In the west writing a Eulogy or delivering the Eulogy is considered a matter of honor. Normally the person elected to deliver a Eulogy will be someone who is close to the deceased and knows him intimately. For a brief moment during the Eulogy everyone remembers back to the time when the deceased was alive and shared wonderful moments with them. It gives each one an occasion to remember the moments shared with the loved one and what he meant to them.

Generally the Eulogy will also reflect the deliverer’s feelings and his loss connecting the audience with the deceased as well as with the deliverer. It is important to pick significant memories that leave a happy image of the person who is no longer amidst them. It can include details like how they met, to the things they shared in common. It is also right to touch on the aspects that the deceased was most popular for.

Any deliverer of a Eulogy generally gathers important information about the person by talking to the family members, co workers, neighbors and friends. General information of a person in a Eulogy refers to details like.

- Person’s date of birth – Close relationships and family – Career/work/education – Hobbies and interests. – Residential address – Other accomplishments

A Eulogy requires a lot of courage. Getting the facts right and presenting it in a beautiful and touching manner can help the bereaving members to come to terms with their loss.
