Preparing a Personal Reflection Eulogy

After a loved one passes, there is often very little time before the funeral service and cremation or burial. However, it’s important to resist the temptation to rush through preparing your eulogy. Take the time to carefully consider your most poignant memories of the decedent and the experiences the two of you shared. Select the memories that you feel best represent the decedent’s true character and values in life, and use those to write your personal reflection eulogy.
