Much as we enjoy the favourite poems too, its those personal, family-written eulogies that get to us every time.
Sometimes family members find it difficult and say they couldn’t think of the right words, so a eulogy is omitted or very short and sweet. This is fine, it feels as if something is missing. one of the best solutions to this came at a funeral recently.
Idea for family euology
Boy was this effective, i went a way feeling I knew this woman who loved sunshine, flowers, cooking and family life, but woe betide those who didn’t have clean shoes or ate food whilst walking down the street.
Without fail, we go away from these funerals thinking "I hope I achieve as much as them by their age!"
