How do I write a eulogy for my mother?

A eulogy is a speech that pays tribute to your mother's life. It can include a brief story of your mother's life, and you should tell your own story about her rather than cater to what others are telling you to write.

Here are some things you can include in a eulogy:

  • Your mother's personality

  • Her impact on your life

  • Special milestones

  • Your favorite memories of her

  • Her best characteristics

  • Her accomplishments

  • How much she meant to you

  • A brief overview of her life, including key milestones

  • Details about her relationships with close family and friends

  • Any significant accomplishments related to her career, interests, or hobbies

You can also add a meaningful anecdote or special poem to honor your mother.

Here are some tips for writing and delivering a eulogy:

  • Tell happy stories

  • Keep it to a reasonable length

  • Have someone look it over for you

  • Keep the audience in mind when writing

  • Practice reading it aloud

  • Start with the lighter stuff

  • Speak slowly

  • Make eye contact

By following these tips, you can create a speech that is both meaningful and memorable or you can simply hire a eulogy writer and leave all of the heavy lifting to us.
