I Will Make You Proud: A Eulogy for My Mom

thank you note for eulogy

This is not the time to write the great American novel, so keep telling yourself that "less is more." The truth is that the longer you speak, the more likely you will ramble and make listeners feel awkward, bored, or uncomfortable. Instead, you should create a eulogy that you can deliver in around five minutes. If possible, ask the funeral director, clergy member, celebrant, or other officiants beforehand how much time you will have during the service, but five minutes is a good rule of thumb.

To help keep your remembrance speech brief, you should focus your eulogy on a specific quality or two about the deceased that you admire, or share a story about the deceased that expresses a significant personality trait or formative moment in his or her life. Ideally, try to relate something that you witnessed firsthand or that personally involved you, but if you're having trouble thinking of something, then it's okay to ask a close loved one for some ideas.

By limiting the scope of your remarks in this way, you should find it easier to write your eulogy. A eulogy outline can also help. In addition, you will more likely give your listeners some meaningful insight into the deceased that they will cherish, rather than fill them with the desire to glance at their watches or stifle their yawns.

Read these tips to help you write and deliver a touching, meaningful eulogy for a funeral or memorial service. Keep it brief, personal, and.

How to Word Funeral Thank You Notes

thank you note for eulogy

The condolence message samples we have provided are based on different possible scenarios and cover a variety of relationships for which condolence messages may be required. They are based on common real life scenarios, and adapted from actual condolence letters.

These rules serve as basic guidelines to ensure that you don't unintentionally say the wrong thing in a sympathy message

  • Keep them short yet thoughtful
  • Try to mention a fond or funny memory of the deceased if we knew them
  • Respect religious beliefs. Some people may believe in reincarnation rather than heaven, or could be atheists. Whatever their belief, they still deserve sympathy.
  • Sign with a full name (first and surname) - This is good practice as there might be other relatives or friends with the same first name as you.
  • Never offer financial help
  • Never mention money the deceased may have owed you. This can be dealt with after the grieving period has passed.
  • Do offer to help in other ways such as offering to cook a nice meal for them, or help with chores

Letters of sympathy and condolences are personal, and so you should first mention the name of the person you are addressing. Some of the ways you can do that are:

  • Dear _______,
  • My Dear Friend _______,
  • Dearest _______,
  • Dear Mrs. _______,
  • Dear Mr. _______,
  • Dear Cousin _______,
  • Dear Uncle _______,
  • Dear Aunt _______,
Informal Condolence Messages

For less intimate relationships, say the family of a co-worker who has died, a single sentence on a card will suffice. Some single sentence condolence message samples might be:

  • We are saddened to hear of your sudden loss.
  • Our hearts are with you in this time of sorrow.
  • Please accept our heartfelt condolences on the loss of your loved one.
  • Words can't express how saddened we are to hear of your loss.
  • Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you during this tragic time.
Longer Condolence Message Samples

If you knew the deceased and would like to say more than a single sentence you can use phrases such as:

On behalf of the Rugby Football club let me pass our deepest condolences on the recent passing of club legend _____. To say _____ was a larger than life character would be an understatement. He will always be remembered as a great team player – verified by his many awards. His on the field competitive style and skill were only surpassed by his incredible positive influence and zest for life off the field.

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.

May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.

I pray that the many happy memories of _____’s life with all of you will, with time, overcome the sadness and pain that have accompanied you all as you journeyed these later years with _____. _____ did a lot in the community, but I particularly remember hi/her dedication to our church. He/she worked tirelessly and was a good friend to all. I will always remember our happy times in _____. Please be assured of my prayers.

Please accept my sincerest condolences on the loss of your dear _____. I have so many happy memories of spending time at each other's homes when we were growing up. We were very lucky. I know your _____ fought a brave battle. God bless him/her and all of you at this time of sorrow.

Grief can be so hard, but our special memories help us cope. Remembering you and your loved one today and always.
