Eulogy Speech Help - Guidelines For
Writing Funeral Speeches
By James Nardel
Funerals should not only be a time of grief. It is a
celebration of one's life. There are so many emotions
that you might be feeling. Giving out a speech during a
funeral is really a great opportunity for you to
celebrate the life of someone close to your heart.
If you were to deliver a funeral speech, here are some
guidelines in writing one:
Take your time and think about how you would want people
to remember the person. You can share the experiences
you had together. You can talk to his family members and
friends and let them talk about their memories about him
too. Gather these together and you would surely create a
good memorial speech.
Get ready with your pen and paper and start drafting a
funeral speech. Some of the ideas you can talk about is
the personality of the person, the values that he had
that influenced you, the lessons that you learned by
reflecting about his life, his uniqueness and the
meaningful memories you shared together.
Keep your speech brief. A three-minuter speech would
suffice. Remember to put in just the important things in
your speech to make it short but meaningful and
Make it a point not to say something negative about the
deceased person. Create a positive atmosphere all
throughout your funeral speech.
During the event, handle your emotions. You can show
some tears but try not to break down all together. If
you think you have the tendency to break down, delegate
a person to continue the speech for you. (So make sure
you have your funeral speech written down legibly on
piece of paper or print it out).
Speak from your heart and you would never go wrong. Keep
the sincerity of your funeral speech and you would
definitely make the moment special.
