WRITING A FUNERAL EULOGY

Today the idea of celebrating a life is a popular alternative to a traditional funeral.

Whichever type of service you choose eulogies still remain at the heart of any funeral or memorial.

The style of a eulogy is very much dependant on the person you are remembering.They can be emotional, tearful, inspiring or downright hilarious, often a mixture of both.

Writing a eulogy can feel like a big responsibility, but it doesn't have to be perfect. A funeral eulogy comes from the heart, so it doesn't have to be perfectly written and if it doesn't go to plan no one will judge you.

It doesn't have to be a long speech and rather than listing life events in chronicalogical order make it a series of anecdotes that highlight the persons qualities and values.

Don't feel that you have to totally concentrate on just the good points sometimes the person's little imperfections can be heartwarming and people will smile and remember them with you.

Remember people are there to support you and your loved ones.
