TINO’S EULOGY

We gather here today to celebrate the life of my great great grandmother, a mentor and also my closet friend, Tino Dinh. She left us after 120 years contributing wisdom and contagious passion to this world. If life were a horror movie, great great grandma would be that weird Asian one, who figured out who or what the killer was. Despite the unusual talent and logical reasoning, she would still be the second to last to die and gave everyone a good laugh in the movie, because of her natural willingness to sacrifice for others.

When she was young, many people said Tino looked like the actress Angelina Jolie… except for the face. Well the truth is, she had the same birthday with Angelina Jolie and the same birth month with Marilyn Monroe. I guess that should explain Tino’s gorgeous teeth. Most of us remember her as one of the most generous female CEOs who donated her whole shares of the Dinh Pharmaceutical Group to the Human Brain Research Center, but to me, she was and will always be my loving great great grandmother. She had been very helpful and supportive to her family. Tino loved troubleshooting. Seriously. We never had an Internet problem for too long because she hated slowness and hated not being able to solve the problems. With that being said, Tino finished what she started and genuinely dedicated to all of her work.

One thing unique about my great great grandma was, she loved mysteries so much that she became one to me. She said it was her flaw for being too curious and excited for something. I remember how joyful she was when we investigated the situations and experimented new things together, including taking risks and breaking mommy’s rules. I am glad to inherit her adventurous and creative blood. Some of her famous detective publications like “You don’t mess with the graveyard,” “The unfinished bloody marry,” and “8 hairy marinated spiders” have enormously encouraged me to pursue my writing career.

Thank you Tino for always

    This sacrifice taught me that sometimes in life we as people have to make very challenging choices in order to receive the best long term results. Growing up, she always reminded me to think for the future and not just in the now. She has also taught me to become independent. By being forced to be a mother figure at the young age of 17, she had to learn how to everything on her own, raise 10 children, and take care of her ill father. This is the reason why I always try my hardest to get the best out of life. I feel that I should always take advantage of every great opportunity. If my grandmother could accomplish so much throughout…

    I Father O’reilly am privileged to have gathered amongst you all today, to give another perspective of a man who was not “just Ed”. He never gave himself great value but in my eyes he was a saint walking among us. I will never forget the moments and favours that Ed has shared with me. Ed, as many would say was a useless cab driver but in truth, I would say he was more of an inspiration and certainly it was an honour to have met this young gentleman.…

    His name was Bradley Tolman. He was born on March 21, 1998 in Madison Memorial Hospital, in the city of Rexburg, Idaho. As a child Brad was an extremely hilarious kid, he was always smiling and laughing. There was always one thing about him that he would always do, he tied his blanket around his neck like a cape, and put on a pair of sunglasses, ran around the house saying “I’m Batman”. He would save people from the bad guys. Then there was this time when he wanted his mom to cut his hair right before school; because he wanted to go to school with his hair short. It was about time the bus should have been coming to pick them up. He really wanted his hair cut so much that he ran into the house, grabbed his dad’s electric razor,…

    Who does not enjoy a good mystery story? Popular literature abounds with examples, raging from the controversial work of Dan Brown to the horrific work of Stephen King. This genre, rooted in the Victorian tradition of Edgar Allan Poe, Wilkie Collins and Arthur Conan Doyle, certainly has a wide following. On the beach, on the subway, people escape into the worlds of these authors. Although many female writers claim to be the “Queen of Crime Fiction”, it is really Agatha Christie against whom all others are measured. Even many years after her death, readers appreciate Agatha Christie’s novels because of her strong characters, her interesting setting and her strong morality.…

    The Lottery Eulogy

    Tessie Hutchinson is my name. I'll be writing my own eulogy in case my name gets called for The Lottery. If you ask me, the tradition of The Lottery should continue on. I believe that if the tradition were to be excluded, consequently, the relationships that the villagers have towards each other could shatter because of the fear of change we have. The natural resistance that our village has towards change is also included. Moreover, it is inconceivable for us villagers to change or stop the tradition. Therefore, I conclude that the tradition of The Lottery should continue on.…
