What is a Eulogy?
Eulogies are a final homage reverencing the life of a loved one. They describe the life and accomplishments of the deceased, and act as a final memoir for family and friends to remember their accomplishments and legacy. This memoir helps to bring comfort and peace to family and reassure they had a life well lived.
Along with listing life details, important events, and accomplishments, surviving family members of the deceased are often listed to show posterity and to remind readers to help the grief-stricken family members.
