A Few Words on How to Write a Eulogy Speech

A eulogy speech is a writing meant to commemorate and honor the life of the person who just died. It is often recited in funerals with the people close to the person who passed away. Eulogies are generally written and recited by a relative or a close friend and contain special details about the dead. Eulogies do not have to be perfect; they just have to be written from a person's heart.

To be able to write a touching eulogy, you must first realize that it is an honor for you to write and deliver a eulogy speech. You have the opportunity to bring to mind the life of the deceased person to the people who will hear your speech. The eulogy will help the audience remember the person - who he is, what he did, and how he lived his life. The next thing you should do before writing a eulogy speech is to recall your memories with the person. Recollect the times you've been together, moments you've shared and the things you will miss now that the person is gone.

Once you get all special memories in hand, write the eulogy. You are not required to follow an outline when writing a eulogy; you have to use your own voice and your own style. The audience will not question anything in your speech because it is highly personal. Once you are done, review and revise it if necessary. Take a copy with you in the delivery itself for you may forget a thing or two if you get overwhelmed by your emotions.
