Lennie small’s eulogy
I would not consider Lennie and I friends, no, definitely not friends, we were way much more than just friends. Lennie did not deserve to die. He was like a child. He was innocent. Every day I spent with that fool, and yet I do not regret a single moment. Most of you picture Lennie as this big guy. Well, I’ll admit to you, Lennie was huge, but so was his heart.
He could do the work of three men without even breaking a sweat, and he would not complain a single time. He would do anything I said because he had complete faith in me. Lennie was so trustworthy that you could tell him to do anything like walk into that river, and he would do it, no questions asked. He was a good man too.
You could tell Lennie all of your secrets and know that he would never repeat them to anyone. Lennie loved to feel smooth things; it always made a smile stretch across his face when he felt things that were smooth. He would try to keep mice as pets, but he always ended up killing them because he would pet them to hard. He was too dangerous and he needed me to help keep him stay out of trouble.
Lennie and I shared a dream of someday buying our own farm. We would have lived together and grown our own crops. He would always get so excited about being able to take care of rabbits that we had planned to get and feeding them alfalfa. I never really believed in the farm but he would always make me tell the story of us on it and his excitement from it started to get me excited in it. It seemed like we would be able to follow through with this dream, but just he couldn’t help himself.
People never could really befriend Lennie. I was his best friend. I was his only friend. He was an outcast among other people. He did not know what he was doing when he killed Curley’s wife. It was an accident. Everyone has accidents. His was just had too big of one, and this one unfortunately cost him his life.
Lennie did not deserve to die. I had no other choice but to kill him myself. I

    Lennie I choose Lennie because I thought that he was one of the more interesting and exhilarating characters in Of Mice and Men. For one of the pictures in my collage I have a picture of Lennie which he was described as "...A huge man, shapeless of face with large pale eyes, with wide sloping shoulders...". Also in the book when him and George where walking they described Lennie as "...walked heavily, dragging his feet a little, the way a bear drags his paws...". When Lennie and George were…

    Lennie Lennies behaviour is very childlike, this can be perseieve from ‘’Lennie put his hands over his ears’’ his manorisms of dealing with issues are very child like and can be seen to be similar to the ideal of ‘out of sight out of mind’. This makes us forget about his strength and we are reminded that he can be dangerous, in the scene when he fights with Curley which surprises the reader as he first comes across as a soft person, and this i turn prepares the reader for the following events of…

    Lennie’s Eulogy Sometimes things happen, and there isn’t always something that we can do to change it. Someone’s death will always be something to mourn about, but it also allows us to celebrate their life and bring everyone together. Lennie’s death is most definitely a reason to bring us together, and even more of a reason to talk about and cherish. Lennie and I had a different relationship than most people do. We stuck together wherever we went, and a lot of people questioned this. It was just…

    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…
