The Eulogy, Loving tribute to celebrate a life

The eulogy is an important part of the service as it celebrates the life of your loved one and the way they touched your heart & life as well as the life of others. Writing and delivering the eulogy is an important undertaking, since the eulogy helps the healing process begin for all who are left behind. The eulogy can be delivered by anyone – a family member, friend or clergy – it is best delivered by one who has closely known the deceased. The eulogy may be shared jointly with a number of others contributing words of remembrance and even poetry.
