How to Write and Deliver a Eulogy
It’s an honour to write and deliver a eulogy, and it can be a daunting task, so try not to feel stressed or anxious. To gather your emotions together, try bringing a trusted family member or friend to stand by and support you when talking, also have a drink of water nearby. Your task is to honour the deceased, or briefly sum up their life in an interesting way in just a few minutes. Usually it’s quite short (five to ten minutes). It may reassure you to recite the eulogy to another person in a quiet room the evening beforehand.
