What To Expect When Writing A Great Tribute Speech

Being asked to deliver an eulogy is a very special honor, as well as a big responsibility. Many people look for comfort in the touching words about the individual to whom they are paying respects. There are a few things one should keep in mind in order to write the best possible funeral tribute speech.

Eulogies are most effective when given by someone who knew the deceased on a level most others did not. Usually, a single individual is asked to perform this task, though it is perfectly acceptable if the family wishes to have several eulogists. This often happens when the individual had deep relationships in different aspects of their life.

Eulogies are funeral staples for two primary reasons. They serve as a way for the speaker to not only say goodbye to someone they were close to, but also to convey to others how deeply the loss will be felt. These words can provide service attendees with more intimate information about the special individual to whom they are paying respects.

Funerary speeches pose a special set of challenges to the one writing them. It is important to remember that everyone is grieving and seeking comfort, so the words should be positive and uplifting. The eulogy should read as naturally as possible so that it rings personal and not as something false, generic or insincere.

The tone should follow either a personal theme or a biographical one as that choice will determine the type of information that will be included. In one style, the speaker shares favorite memories and helps everyone connect to the deceased on a deep level. The other is a way of paying tribute to a life and its accomplishments going from first breath to last.

Speeches should be powerful, yet brief, in order to maintain the intimacy and hold everyone's attention. For better sincerity, one should work from notes instead of trying to memorize or read every word. The goal is not perfection, but rather to comfort others and deliver a genuinely heartfelt tribute to a loved one lost.
