Funeral speeches can be especially difficult to compose during a time of duress.
Write eulogies can be one of the most difficult tasks of your life when a loved one passes away.
Be Strong of Heart
By Dean Alan (Dino) Deal
...and compassionate in soul. Armor yourself against the rapacious fates but do not distress yourself with phantoms of dread. Be wise, thoughtful, and strong in the face of adversity, for no fruitless counsel can stem the flow or alter the progress of time.
The wounds perpetrated upon your spirit are not mortal, they are but enlightenment, timely stops on the path that each of us travel. These afflictions upon our joy are the necessary balance against unrestrained hedonism. Within these counterpoints of life are found pearls of wisdom and the lasting meanings of life well spent.
We do not smile or rejoice at the visage of death, but neither do we skulk away in fear or seek countless avenues of oblivion. We stand our ground and measure our success against the life well led by those who are no longer with us, knowing full well our time will eventually come; and many may learn from our life.
Upon the passing of those well beloved we must not meander in sadness and grief. In the summation of their lives we must ask ourselves: have we acquitted ourselves as well, will we make them proud for the gifts they have sought to bestow upon us? It is within our grasp to give even greater meaning to their lives by incorporating within us all that they gave.
Within the cycle of life and death, we continue within those we touch and commend to the future of human kind.

Funeral speeches, funeral eulogy or tribute, and memorials are all related. They usually contain feelings and emotions the speaker feels for the departed.
Write eulogies or writing a tribute may elude you with so much else going with a funeral at hand.
Write how you remember that person. Write how they affected your life and what part of them you’ll carry with you through your life. Let others know that person’s life stood for something.
Funeral speeches can be deeply personal, or they can be a general positive description without a lot of emotion.
