The journey of life begins at the day we are born, we get afraid as the first time we walk because we might fall and get hurt, we are afraid to do some things because we might fail, and sometimes we are afraid to confess because we might be rejected. That’s how life begins with us, we are afraid to do something new, because we don’t know what life will it bring to us, sometimes it’s good and sometimes it’s bad. We never know what tomorrow will give us, but tomorrow is the reason why we become stronger and better. As time passes by, we explore something new, something we wish we could have even we doesn’t really need it. Sometimes, we can already ride with the journey of our lives, but sometimes life brings us bad things, we compare, differentiate, and weigh which one is important, which one we can’t live without, and then we make our decision and choices. Choices is what we make and the reason why our fate changes, we want it today, but how about tomorrow or the next day? We also need to set aside the other possibilities, not because you want it today, it will be the one you will go to choose. In choosing what we want, the friends we have also choose either to stay or to leave, many will leave and few will stay, they have reasons but sometimes we can’t accept the fact that they can do it to us. In the day I will die, there are a lot of things I wanted to say with the people I love/loved me, with the people who hate me, with the people who left me, and with the people I used to be with. I want to thank them, for they always with me, they care and support me, even sometimes they can’t understand me for the things I want, for the things I don’t. They give me happiness whenever I can’t give it to myself, they give me freedom to be crazy and I don’t need to pretend I’m happy because I can cry in front of them without judging me, without questioning me. Thank you for choosing me as your friend. Sorry for giving you headache and heartache. As you start to know me,
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….
Eulogy of Parson Johnson
Hello everyone, I thank you all again for coming along to pay tribute to Frank Reprieve Wilcox or more well known as Mr Van Gogh, a member in our community who was not rightly recognised and possibly seen by some as an oddity. I am Rodney Johnson and would like to use this time to reflect on our Mr Van Gogh in order to value each member of our community in a greater way.
Mr Van Gogh’s real name was Frank Reprieve Wilcox. After thinking back over his life, I realised how….
My name is Ted and I am one of the nephews of Louie and Amy Alves. From day one Amy faced obstacles and even on her death-bed she never showed fear, never stopped laughing and never gave up. She inspired so many people throughout the course of her life and that was obvious by the turnout at the wake last night. Amy was a die-hard sports fan and a very athletic person growing up. She had 9 brothers and sisters, which I am sure contributed to her competitiveness. There is no doubt that she came from….

Had your own language called “Hurrah” which we also called ‘a Bracken thing’ referring to contentment.
Your love was unconditional and pure.
You always wanted to be there.
You never gave up which has confused us today because this sudden tragedy was….
Informative Speech Outline
Attention Getter: Life is not just about the number of days we live, or the number of contacts we have. Our lives can have an immeasurable and undetectable affect on others.
Motivational Link: At some point in our lives we could write, read, or even hear a eulogy about someone that we once knew.
Purpose Statement: Through the context of my presentation it is my purpose to enlighten you on the qualities that make these speeches so memorable….
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….
add dialogue. This ties into your question #3. I don’t think that all stories need tons of dialogue, but to me, it feels like I’m getting a lot of backstory before I ever see anything from the character’s point of view. Maybe add past of someone’s eulogy? I’ve been to one funeral for a young person, and I’ve been to a few for older people. The difference I remember was the things people said. People feel like it’s important to say “they had a good life” or “they lived a long, fulfilling life” if they….
Dead man: Sam
Hello ladies and gentlemen, my name is Brett Dalton and we are here to celebrate the life of Sam. Today we mourn for someone who was a father figure to most of us helping us through the good and bad times. No matter how well you knew Sam he was there to help like brothers in arms.
As most of you will know Sam started off as a stockman, in the vast land of Mungindi. Rounding up horses and cattle all day long in the blistering heat was just what he….
By Lady Macbeth
Today, I stand before a nation in mourning, grieving the passing of its King, Macbeth. He shall surely be remembered in history as a noble and courageous soldier and leader who fought with a fierce loyalty and belief in Scotland. Although his reign was not trouble-free or lengthy, Macbeth inspired a unique and individual pride in his country and made every decision with careful thought, holding firmly to his ideals and principles to the very end. Scotland has….
Citizens of fair Verona, today we gather here to grieve the loss of a precious child of God. Romeo Montague, a young man who was like a son to me, has sadly passed this realm. Although fate has already accomplished its deed, we can still remember the legacy Romeo has left at such a tender age.
I first met Romeo when he was just a little child, born in a society absorbed in hatred. Romeo had a good life but was lonely. His parents did not have the time or energy to look after him….
