Can’t Find the Right Words: Hire a Eulogy Writer

“We are gathered here today to say goodbye to awkward eulogies. The next time you have to deliver one at a funeral, be it for a family member, friend, or V.I.P, you won’t stumble and stammer if you hire a eulogy writer.” The last time I wrote a eulogy it was for my dad’s funeral in 2004. While it was an emotional and trying time, I was the one chosen to give the eulogy. Everyone told me how moving it was — thank God I’m a writer.

It may be awkward to hire a eulogy writer but it’s better than writing a eulogy that falls flat. A eulogy writer will take the pressure out off of you to put words on paper that may not feel right. What happens if you hardly knew the person who has departed? This may sound strange but sometimes you can be obligated to do something because of family or business connection.

Be wary of so called online eulogy writing services. You’ll have to fill out an online form and answer questions about the newly departed. Click and send your form and you’ll have a eulogy in no time. The problem with this is that you didn’t speak to the writer. First, how will the writer deliver a sincere eulogy without speaking to you? How will they be able to ‘sense’ your emotion? Second, if this is how eulogies are created, it seems as if ‘cookie cutter’ eulogies will be created. Finally, you won’t be able to share a story or pertinent information about the person. The writer won’t learn anything about the dearly departed’s character, position, philanthropic endeavors, and other vital information. A eulogy is too important to leave to a eulogy writing service.

If you need a eulogy, hire a professional eulogy writer. They’ll interview you for an hour or two, extracting information about the person’s personality, character, and position in life; hobbies, and other information. The eulogy will be appropriate and unique to that person. It will be dignified and capture the person’s essence.

Preparing for a funeral is stressful and can be emotionally draining. Hiring a eulogy writer will make the day a little more bearable. A eulogy writer understands the sensitive nature of this assignment. They’re used to writing under pressure and will make the deadline. You’ll deliver a heartfelt and sensitive eulogy that the dearly departed would approve of and will move the attendees.
