Writing a Eulogy | Morrisons
Henderson Funeral Services
Sometimes your minister or celebrant will ask to write out a “life History” of your loved one to be read at the service. This might be read by you, or another family member, a friend, or the person officiating. You are the only one that knows all the little things and the big things that have happened throughout your loved one’s life but being asked to write these down can just seem too hard! Don’t worry, it is not possible to write down a person’s whole life so just choose the parts that mean something and are special to you and your family. Just glance through the list below to help jog your memory. Often talking with the family will bring up lots of memories; have someone jot these down so that you can think about them when you are writing the eulogy.

- PARENTS AND SIBLINGS, SCHOOLING, CHILDHOOD DAYS, TEENAGE AND YOUNG DAYS,

- TRIPS/ADVENTURES, SPECIAL EVENTS, CLUBS, PASSIONS AND LOVES, HOBBIES, SOCIAL LIFE,
