How to Handle Funeral Speeches
By James Nardel
Delivering any kind of speech is a hard thing to do, add
it up with a feeling of grief and bereavement, one can
really struggle during the process. A funeral speech
should celebrate the life of the person who has passed
away. The most part of it should be positive and give
the feeling of acceptance and hope.
You do not have to be the best writer in the world to
draft and write funeral speeches. You can browse the
Internet or check your local library for samples of
eulogy so you can have an idea on how to write one
yourself. You can also download pre-made funeral
speeches but it would be best to write them yourself.
Writing custom funeral speeches allows you to add
emotions and personal memories within the text. This
would make it more solemn and genuine.
You can go to a quiet spot and think of what you want to
say during the eulogy. You can talk about a person's
life history and give a short summary of his life. You
can also make a tribute and relinquish a person's
achievements and how he influenced the lives of other
people in a positive way. Sharing memories that you had
with the person who passed away can really be touching.
Doing so can give your funeral speech a more personal
take. If you feel like it, you can accompany your
funeral speech with a poem, a bible verse, a song or a
short story that relates with the life of your deceased
Keep your funeral speech short and concise. End your
speech with something to remember about the person who
has gone away. When delivering your speech, don't over
worry and just relax. It's okay to cry and show your
emotions but make sure that you have enough composure to
finish your speech.
