The Importance of Writing a Eulogy
A eulogy is one of the core components of a funeral service. As the eulogy is being read and the audience is listening to the warm and thoughtful words of their loved one, it brings the people together as a group to rejoice the life of the deceased.
If you are writing a eulogy to read at your loved one’s funeral service, you have been given a very special contribution. You are not only sharing the facts about the deceased such as, their history, family, career, and achievements, but you are also acknowledging their life and who they were as a person. As you speak from your heart, expressing your feelings and love, you are sharing what the deceased meant to you and the impact they had on you and the people of the funeral service.
A eulogy brings the people of the funeral service together in unity as they pay a tribute to the deceased and listen to the stories and good memories being told. Everyone in the room will reflect back onto their own lives. They will think about how the deceased touched their hearts and the relationship they shared with their loved one.
After a eulogy has been read, the people have heard a true reflection that resonates with them. Perhaps the stories will continue on afterwards at the funeral service, reminiscing on the times they will cherish for a lifetime. The eulogy is truly a gift presented to the deceased as the people who love them pay their respect and say their final goodbyes.
