Finding the words to pay tribute to a loved one in the form of a eulogy is not an easy task, especially at a time when you are grieving. A Celebrant will be able to assist you with writing the eulogy and will often read the eulogy at the funeral service on behalf of the family.
It would be helpful if you and your family members give some thought to the following suggestions before meeting with your Celebrant.
You may wish to read the eulogy yourself or ask a close friend or family member to do this for you. Whoever performs this task should be aware that for some people public speaking can be quite daunting, especially in an emotional setting such as a funeral. It may be a good idea to organise a support person who can take over from the person reading the eulogy in the event they find themselves unable to continue at some point during the reading. Remember your Celebrant can also help with this should the need arise.
