Eulogy


Eulogy

As a family or friend, you may be asked to write a eulogy at some point. Don’t despair.

It is indeed an honor and means you are valued by the deceased and his or her family.

What is a eulogy? This is a definition from Wikipedia

eulogy (from ελογία, eulogia, Classical Greek for “praise”) is a speech or writing in praise of a person(s) or thing(s), especially one who recently died or retired or as a term of endearment. Eulogies may be given as part of funeral services. They take place in a funeral home during or after a wake.

So, what do you say?

Well, you always want to respect the deceased and family.

If you are looking for a “how to,” I think we have found something for you.

Recently, we came across an article by Funeral Wise that talks about writing a eulogy.

The eulogy is usually the most personal part of a funeral service because it acknowledges the uniqueness of the deceased and his or her meaning to others.

It may seem easy to write a positive and honest eulogy for a family member or friend, but when the time comes it may be hard to deal with your own grief. So, it’s important to take some time to focus yourself before you begin. It is usually best to outline your eulogy before you try writing. Keep in mind that the average eulogy is about 10 or 12 minutes long.
