EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK

The first stage of writing a eulogy is often referred to as information gathering. Experts recommend sitting down and brainstorming about the person you are commemorating before you begin the actual eulogy writing. By getting thoughts down in a free flowing manner, you may come up with details, stories, or attributes about the person that you may not if you try to follow a strict outline setting from the outset. Think about what the person looked like, hobbies, career, family life, and any stories you might want to share.

The more details you can add the better. Don't worry about flow or organization at this point. All you are tying to do is get some ideas down on paper. Next, call some family or friends of the deceased and ask them if they have any stories or memories they would like to share, find out if the deceased had any favorite songs, poetry, or literature that would be good to include.

Next you will want to start organizing your eulogy. Some people like to prepare an outline. You will want to include biographical information, perhaps a bit about where the person grew up, their family life, places they lived, also mention their children and spouse if applicable. You could also include career information in this section as well.
