There is sadness and loss at Funeral and Memorial Services, because someone loved has passed.
There can also be a celebration of a life lived. Of the joy they brought, of the achievements and the relationships. There can be points in the Service where there is a time to smile and even laugh. There can be funny memories, quirky habits or perhaps they had a good sense of humor or enjoyed playing jokes ....
Sometimes using humor to explore just "who this person really was" can really celebrate their life and create a very memorable occasion that honors their life. It can be a funny story, an anecdote, a quote, even foibles. There will be many attending who will connect and relate and smile and maybe even laugh, maybe loud!
A life can be long and short. Any life has so much crammed in that it is a shame not to honor a life lived, at this special time. We are complex people with so many parts and a Eulogy can explore many. Humor is a good way to explore.
No problems. There are countless funny stories, jokes, quotes already available in books, magazines and the Internet. All you need to do is appropriately and respectfully adapt them.
I do mean any humor other than eulogy humor. A life lived is complex and full of living and in there are opportunities to find good stories and funny ways easily incorporated into this memorable occasion.
Now you can easily select appropriate humor in minutes, change, adapt and adjust the humor and create a Eulogy that will be well regarded and appreciated by all who are there, easily, regardless of how good a speaker you are, regardless of who is in your audience, or where you are giving your Eulogy.
Regardless of whether you are giving a Eulogy, or you are talking to family and friends before or after a Service, humor will help celebrate this memorable occasion and make this time easier.
