Someone in our family passed away this week. She lived a good long life and died peacefully in her sleep. We will miss her terribly now, but look forward to seeing her again someday in Heaven.
I was asked to speak at the Memorial Service. Generally that would terrify me…but this time I was glad to say “yes”. Although it’s never “easy” to speak at a funeral, it will be easy to find nice things to say about her. I won’t have to be “creative”. I won’t have to “make stuff up”. I will simply have to tell the story of someone I admire and respect. It will be easy to find examples in her life of her faith and her values. It will be an “easy” eulogy.
So sorry in advance for the “downer” question…but this has got me thinking. How “easy” would it be for someone to write my eulogy? How about yours? Would it be “creative writing 101″…or “the greatest story ever told”? We are “writing our own eulogy” every day…will it be an “easy” story to tell?
