How To Open Your Eulogy Speech

Quotes can be a humorous, inspirational, spiritual, or a religious way to kick start your eulogy.  The quote can be from someone famous, your loved one, a friend, the Bible, or any other book.  “Johann W. von Goethe once said, ‘A useless life is an early death.’  Luckily for Jennifer, this never applied to her extraordinary existence.”  “I remember when Bill used to say, ‘God sure has a since of humor, because if he didn’t, I wouldn’t have married your mother.’  I used to chuckle every time he poked fun at his wonderful marriage.  Bill and Molly were definitely soul mates.”  Remember that these quotes can be used anywhere throughout the eulogy. 

Use as many as you feel are necessary.

Questions.  Begin the eulogy with a question, and give the answer.  “My father once asked me, ‘Michael, what do you think you will wish for on your deathbed?’  I looked at him blankly.  He replied, ‘I can tell you what I won’t say.  God, I wish I had worked more, or made more money.  I will say, I wish I had more time to spend with my family.’  That is what made dad so great.  His complete, unconditional love for his family.”     

POEM.  A poem is a great way to begin a eulogy.  It can be one you created, or a favorite poem of your loved one.  The best poem to use is one that has strong meaning to you. 

That we may mark with wonder and chaste dread
At hour of noon, when, with our limbs outspread
Lazily in the whispering grass, we lie
To gaze out fully upon the windy sky-
Far, far away, and kindly, friend with friend
To talk the old, old talk that has no end,
Roaming-without a name-without a chart
The unknown garden of another’s heart.  --C.S. Lewis
