Writing a Eulogy

Where do you start?  Many of the mourners will know only part of your loved one’s life. The eulogy tells the story of the deceased’s life outlining the important milestones and providing a reflective observation of his/her personality and character. One person may deliver the eulogy or you may want to divide up aspects amongst a number of speakers.

It is important that speakers do not repeat each other’s stories and are mindful of any time constraints. We recommend that the eulogies are rehearsed out loud to give confidence during the funeral.
