How to write an eulogy for your mother
Focus On the Personal Remember to connect each story back to who your mother was as a person.
This family, and her role as mother and grandmother, was the most important thing to Mom. Outline Everything Now that you have your ideas in place and understand your anticipated duration and organizational structure, begin to put everything in order. First, pinpoint any repeating ideas in the list to put together an all-encompassing message for your eulogy. But the truth is, as I watched her sleep, I took comfort in knowing she was lost in a dream-world instead of plagued by her dark reality—and the words poured out of me like I too was lost in a world of dreams. What can be more important than loving and showing your love for your family? My mother spent hours in her sewing room making beautiful outfits for us to wear, or knitting jumpers in preparation for winter. Reading it aloud is usually even more so. Initially, I thought this would be the hardest thing I would ever write.
While we know that she is at peace and that her struggles are at an end, there is pain and sadness. Is your eulogy meant to enlighten, to show admiration, to cheer, to lay to rest?
My name is Robin, and Mary was my mother. Writing the Conclusion As with any speech, the final statements of a eulogy are often the most impactful and should certainly make a lasting impression on listeners.
She remembered that the class filled the jar with marbles and got an ice cream party because they were so good to each other.
You may also want to have someone else read it, your connection to the material being as intimate as it is. My parents agreed and a friend and I went.
How incredibly strong was she? Keep focused on what is truly important, not only when your life is easy, but when it is difficult too.
