A Eulogy can be a simple recollection of memories shared at the service, by family, friends and work colleagues. Or alternatively it can be a comprehensive account of the deceased’s life. This can be in chronological order spoken by one person or different times of a person’s life shared by people belonging to those memories.
The following are some things you may wish to elaborate on:
- War service
- Club memberships
- Favorite holiday destinations
- Comical stories
- Sporting interests
- Who was she/he
- What you will always remember
Some feel they are unable to speak at times like this and others feel it necessary, as this is the one last thing they may do for their loved one. No matter what, you should always do what is right for you and only do what makes you feel comfortable. A celebrant will be able to read a eulogy on your behalf if you wish, or perhaps you may ask a family member or friend to do so.
