Eulogies, Poems & Readings
A eulogy is a personal short speech often written by and read by a family member or close friend at the funeral service.
It usually includes details about the person who has died such as when and where they were born, schooling history, details of employment and humorous stories about their life.
Including poems and readings can give more people the opportunity to contribute to the service.
If I Should Go
By Joyce Grenfell
If I should go before the rest of you
Break not a flower nor inscribe a stone
Nor when I’m gone speak in a Sunday voice
But be the usual selves that I have known
Weep if you must
Parting is hell
But life goes on
So sing as well.
