Writing a eulogy for a loved one living or passed can be a daunting prospect. What to say? What not to say? How much to say?
Eulogies don’t have to be grand, wise, long, tearful or epic.
The best eulogies are true, sincere and heartfelt in the way they capture the essence of your departed loved one’s life. (See examples.)
Eulogies range from a brief quote up to 1000 words or more. We recommend no more than seven-minutes speaking time (1000 words). Research shows 7-minutes is the maximum audience listening time before concentration wanes.
Take a deep breath and exhale. You’ve got this.
You can write and deliver a heartfelt eulogy to honor your departed loved one.
