At Keyser Funeral and Cremation Service, we believe that the gift to the deceased does not always need to be in a tangible form. In most cases, it can also be through lovely last words before finally bidding goodbye to the dead. With this, eulogy is important. It is one of the most critical components of a funeral service. If you are given the task to deliver a eulogy during the funeral service, consider this as an honour, which makes it important to be as careful as possible in your choice of words, as well as manner of delivery.


Among other things, writing a eulogy for the funeral service is important because this is an opportunity to share with other people how great of a person the deceased is. This is your chance to highlight the kindness of the individual. If you have ever worked together, the eulogy can showcase how great of an officemate the person is.


More so, eulogy during the funeral service is also important as it will serve as an inspiration. Those who are in attendance will be inspired by the words that you will be sharing, which will surely be a great gift to the deceased.


Delivering a eulogy can also be a reflection – a reflection not only about the person who has died, but also a refection for those who are attending the funeral service. Through your words, people can reflect on what good they are doing in their life, especially when compared to what the deceased has done in his or her lifetime.


A eulogy is also an excellent way to lighten up the mood. The ambiance will be filled with sadness, but this does not mean that you cannot inject a bit of laughter in the room. Share about the beautiful memories that you had with the deceased. A few laughs will not be bad during a funeral service especially if it is because of good memories.


In a nutshell, a eulogy is the best way to honour the dead. With the right words, you will surely be able to comfort the family and make the passing of the person a lot easier to bear. It is a good way of acknowledge the good things that have been done and the beautiful memories that will be left behind.

It can be challenging to write the perfect speech, but with our help, it will be a lot easier for you to find the right words.
