The dead are the best remembered by those who knew them intimately. Thus, a eulogy, presented by a close friend or a relative is likely to paint the most accurate and perceptive picture. If you decide to give a eulogy, remember the unique aspects of the deceased's personality that separated him or her from others. Focus on happy or otherwise memorable moments and incidents that gave meaning to the deceased's life and others' appreciation of him or her. There may be no greater tribute than to elicit laughter at a funeral that is kindled by fond memory. Instead of dwelling on what is lost, celebrate what was given to you and others who are present to pay tribute to a singular personality.
