Write a lasting memorial to an important person in your life by writing eulogies for brothers. Writing a eulogy for a brother is an excellent way to pay tribute and memorialize his life. Writing a eulogy pays tribute to our loved one and help friends and family members attending the funeral grieve by hearing fond memories and stories about the person.
When writing eulogies to brothers it is helpful to begin by reading a sample eulogy. The sample eulogy will show you how to structure your eulogy and what topics are typically included. Next, you may want to contact your brother’s friends and other relatives to collect more information about him. Some of his friends may not be delivering their own eulogies, but may have stories and memories that they would like included in your eulogy. At the least, they can help you learn more about your brother’s likes, dislikes, hobbies and interests.
Eulogies for brothers typically start with a short introduction or welcome message, then are followed by personal memories, experiences of others with your brother, favorite things, how your brother influenced you and others, and how much he will be missed by everyone.
Eulogies For Brothers (Sample):
Thank you to everyone who is here today to pay tribute to my brother Sam. I know that many of you travelled long distances to be here and it is very appreciated by my family and myself.
Sam was 15 years older than me, but even though he was so much older we had a great relationship. Growing up we didn’t have the typical sibling relationship because of our age difference. I barely remember Sam living at our house; most of my early memories were of him off at college. However, even though he wasn’t always around he made an effort to stay involved in my life. He was like a second father to me and was always looking out for my well-being. While he was a father figure, he was still my brother. Sam taught me about girls, took me to my first bar and taught me how to play football and baseball.
As I grew up and graduated from college my brother and I became even closer. I started my own family and had two kids. Sam also had two children, that were teenagers at that point, and they loved to babysit my children. My wife and kids loved to spend time with Sam and his family. Like him, they are all wonderful people and were very thoughtful and caring.
My brother taught me a lot of lessons over the years, which I will cherish forever. I hope to pass his knowledge and wisdom down to my children. He taught me how important family was and demonstrated that by always being there for me even though he was so much older. He also taught me about the importance of education and hard work.
My brother was my role model and I will miss him very much. We should all be thankful for knowing him and for his time on earth. I hope that everyone here remembers how wonderful a person he was and that his memory will continue to live on in our hearts and minds.
