Few Advices For A Tribute For A Funeral

Funerals are not just meant for the dead but for the living as well. They provide an opportunity for the living to memorialize their loved one as well as to accept the fact that he is forever gone from their midst. Giving an opportunity for close family and friends to pay funeral tributes is a good way of honoring their loved one.

If you have been asked to give a speech, take time to prepare. This will help you know what to say and what to leave out. It will also help you prepare psychologically to honor the deceased person. You can opt to write down your main thoughts so as to avoid loosing your train of thought when giving your speech.

Try and share some of the happy or most striking moments you shared with the person. To connect with the crowd, share something that the audience can identify with, such as a familiar character trait or habit of the deceased. Do your research by talking to friends and family of the deceased, so as to have a better understanding of the person.

Show how the deceased affected your life. Talk about any life lessons or any of their character traits that inspired you to be a better person. Be yourself and try not to imitate anyone when giving your speech. It will help you connect with the audience.

Try as much as possible to control your emotions. It is okay to show your emotions, as long as you can regain your composure and continue with your speech. Try and offer comfort to the family members of the deceased, even as you talk about their loved one.

Keep your speech short. This is because there would probably be other people waiting to give funeral tributes. You may include some bit of humor if the situation allows or if the deceased was a jovial person. Choose your words carefully and do not idolize the deceased.
