Example eulogies

“I know it is hard to understand, but sometimes painful things like this happen. It’s all part of the process of exploration and discovery. It’s all part of taking a chance and expanding man’s horizons. The future doesn’t belong to the fainthearted; it belongs to the brave. The Challenger crew was pulling us into the future, and we’ll continue to follow them.” Robert Regan’s National Eulogy on the Challenger Crew 

“He was one of those odd people who believe that life is somehow more important than show business.” Eric Idle giving the eulogy at George Harrison’s Funeral

“Diana was the very essence of compassion, of duty, of style, of beauty. All over the world she was a symbol of selfless humanity, a standard-bearer for the rights of the truly downtrodden, a truly British girl who transcended nationality, someone with a natural nobility who was classless, who proved in the last year that she needed no royal title to continue to generate her particular brand of magic.” An extract from Earl Spencer’s eulogy on his sister Princess Diana

“To the world she was imperfect yet I wouldn’t have changed a thing about her – of I course I realised that she often said I didn’t know what I was talking about and perhaps she’s right!” William Roberts on his wife Doreen

“I don’t know what I will do without her – she meant the world to me and she leaves an irreplaceable void in my life. I cannot imagine waking up and not spending another day with her: she made me laugh, sing, smile and cry sometimes but I’d sacrifice everything I have just to have her back.” Tania Downing on her Mother Alice

Dad appreciated everything I did for him but above everything else he loved us having a pint on a Sunday and a natter before going to my home where Claire would cook him Sunday lunch. Roast Beef, Roast Potatoes, Parsnips, Red Cabbage, Brussels Sprouts and Onion Gravy; his eyes lit up whenever they were on his plate and the real sadness is that I shall never see his eyes light up again. Alan speaking about his Dad Gordon Wallace
