Molly-Ann Leikin, Emmy-nominee, Executive speechwriter,
offering eulogy writing services.
When your loved one is dying, there is no more helpless crawl of time than when watching her/him struggle, then float away. In spite of how hard you hold on, hold on tight tight tight, the moment comes when you have to let go. The person you’ve cared for so long and so deeply, passes away.
As the funeral is arranged, in addition to your heart being trampled and your feelings in razor-like free-fall, you have to write a eulogy.
No matter how articulate you are at other times, in this dark moment of devastating loss, your words and ideas get stuck. All of your emotions are hopelessly tangled, and hide. The last thing you want to think about is where to find appropriate eulogy ideas that aren’t clichéd.
On top of that, you are faced with writing a eulogy speech that will do right by the memory of your loved one for the funeral.
How are you supposed to know how to write a eulogy?
I know how. This is my profession. I’m an Emmy-nominee. And I’m here to write your eulogy speech for the funeral.
When I write your eulogy speech, the syllables I carefully choose, just for you, are passionate, poignant, emotional, and exquisitely sensitive. Or, if you prefer, we can make them funny. Sometimes, both. There are no absolutes.
What tone should my eulogy speech take?
At the funeral, or memorial service, I’ll make sure your speech will sound like you, not me. I will write a eulogy of celebration, if appropriate, not only one about the hole in your heart. As your speechwriter, I will suggest original eulogy ideas. We decide together which ones reflect your personal relationship with your loved one.
In many religions, you only have a day. You panic. Eulogy writing? You’re a CPA. A surgeon. A mathematician. You’re a judge, a techie, a painter, an investment banker. You manage a wildcatting crew. You’re a nurse, a baker, a short stop in Little League.
How do I begin to write a eulogy for you?
First, we speak by phone. During our call, I gather a bouquet of your feelings, and suggest eulogy ideas for the funeral/memorial service. I listen to your love and your pain. I write it down. I cry with you. I’ll make sure your speech will sound like you, not me.
I will write a eulogy of celebration, if appropriate, not only one about the hole in your heart. As your speechwriter, I will suggest original eulogy ideas. We decide together which ones reflect your personal relationship with your loved one. That’s what a eulogy speechwriter is supposed to do.
Will I give the only eulogy speech at this funeral?
At the service, sometimes only one person gives a eulogy. At other memorials, several people will stand and present their thoughts. No matter what your situation is, when you’ve been left behind, like all of us, you ache for one more slow, sweet moment to say goodbye, in your own voice. That’s what I achieve with my eulogy writing services.
Even though it may be a public event, your original eulogy is still about your special relationship and love for the person you lost, as you’re trying to say goodbye. Forever.
As I dig for original eulogy ideas, and I dig deep as deep goes, I have only one goal: to do my very best work for you at this sensitive time, creating a precious, beautiful document whose words will soothe your heart, and your family. That’s what a good eulogy does.
