How to give a eulogy speech without crying
A eulogy speech that draws on stories from the heart is easier to deliver because it relies less on reading and more on recollection. As a result, the speech shines with authenticity and makes for a memorable tribute, even when you’re not a professional speaker.
As for holding back the tears, share snapshots and anecdotes of positive times that make you and those listening draw on the energy of happy memories.
Take heart from the eulogy video examples shown here.
Key points to remember are:
1. Relax and let your personality shine
2. Rehearse before the day of the funeral
3. Stand strong (hold the lectern if need be)
4. Speak so others can hear (adjust the microphone)
