A eulogy has to be the most difficult speech someone ever has to give, however to be asked to give a eulogy for a family member, friend or work colleague is a tremendous honour and brings great responsibility.
The purpose of the eulogy is to pay tribute to the deceased as a distinct individual, with unique talents and gifts, who will live on in the memories of the people who loved him/her. The eulogy allows family and friends to say goodbye to their loved one and acknowledge the gift they shared in being touched by his/her life.
A eulogy may contain a condensed life history of the person who has died, details about family, friends, work/career, interests, and achievements and favourite memories of the deceased. Most importantly a eulogy should be written from the heart.
