Eulogy for My Grandmother - Bertha
Show less A eulogy is a speech about a person who has died, typically delivered at the funeral service. Several eulogies might be given from people who knew the deceased as a coworker, a classmate, a neighbor, etc. To write a eulogy for a grandparent, you should concentrate on your relationship as his or her grandchild, rather than trying to encompass your grandparent's entire life. Funerals can be difficult for everyone who knew the departed, but knowing how to write a strong eulogy can help give you and everyone else in attendance a sense of peace and closure.

For Sofia, from Jelena
Perhaps you were with your grandma when she passed away, sitting by her bedside, speaking gentle and reassuring words to a woman who played such a significant role in your life. Whether you volunteered to give a eulogy for a grandma so dear to your heart, or you were asked to speak about your grandma at her funeral — either through a request in her will or at the request of a living family member — you might now find yourself struggling to begin. A eulogy is similar to a short speech a friend or family member might give at a funeral, but it maintains its own place of prominence. All in attendance knew your grandma in some way, and at some point in time, and all will miss her presence in their lives. The first step is simply to let your mind travel down a stream of consciousness. Curl up in a comfy chair, or slip into bed with a soft blanket. It can be helpful to keep your hands occupied, so wrap your hands around a cup of hot tea or engage in a quiet activity like knitting.
Eulogy Etiquette for those who need a little help getting the words out. First off, I want to start by saying I am so sorry you have to read this post in the first place. But, if you were like me as I tried to gather my thoughts I went searching for a little guidance. Hopefully this post helps provide that for you and reminds you just how to honor that special someone. Suffice it to say, after a few minutes I took to the old paper and pen and began writing down the memories that came to mind; those things that I never wanted to forget and that one day I too will share with my kids from her. Some may choose to speak, some may choose to sit and listen, and some may cry tears of joy and pain mixed together. Honestly, there is no specific formula here.
