Planning a funeral for a loved one is one of the most important tasks you will ever undertake. It’s your chance to give a gift to the person that is no longer with us, express your love for them, and appreciate the value they brought to your life.
During the funeral planning process, one of the decisions you will have to make is whether or not to personalize the eulogy. A eulogy can also help with the healing process. Below, we’re helping you choose right person to give the eulogy as well as some tips for what to include.
A eulogy is a speech given during the funeral ceremony that talks about the life and character of the decedent. It gives the opportunity to share memories of the person and how they affected your life, as well as their loved one’s lives.
The best eulogies are ones that are personal, capture the decedent’s personality, and include personal memories. Honor their memory, give thanks, and acknowledge their accomplishments and those closest to them.
Writing a eulogy can feel overwhelming, especially when it comes to deciding what exactly you should say. Here are some ideas to get you started.
