What is a Eulogy?
A eulogy is a speech delivered in honour or celebration of the person who has passed away. It’s written by someone close to them, usually family members but sometimes friends and ministers as well- all looking for ways they can share what made this individual so special about themselves before bringing it home with themselves until finally finishing up on some final words reflecting generally how much joy their presence brought into people’s lives during life itself
What should you include in a eulogy?
Eulogies show how someone was able to make an impact on other people’s lives. They are usually stories about their life that they find entertaining or memorable, showing off the best aspects of them in a positive light while still being honest and making certain exceptions for moments when it is appropriate not everyone will like what you say (in which case humour should play its role).
The eulogy is a chance to speak about the person in their own words and share stories that they would want you or others to remember them by. This includes personal details as well any accomplishments, but it should also show how everyone involved with this individual could benefit from hearing what he/she had accomplished because there might be some wisdom crucial for future generations too!
