Writing a Thoughtful Eulogy

Funeral Home San Mateo

It’s an honor to be asked to deliver a eulogy at a decedent’s funeral services, but writing the eulogy is often challenging. It may help to remind yourself that the eulogy you deliver at the funeral ceremony doesn’t have to be comparable to a great work of literature. A thoughtful eulogy is simply one that is sincere and that comes from the heart. Watch this featured video for some quick tips to help you get started.

This video recommends talking to family and friends of the deceased. Ask them to share their most memorable moments with the deceased. Be sure to ask them for permission to share these memories at the funeral service. Then, consider your own memories of the decedent, and try to find a theme among these memories. For instance, the decedent might have been known for having a great sense of humor or for being a lifelong learner.
