If your brother has recently passed away, writing a eulogy for a brother is a nice way to pay tribute to his life. A eulogy is a speech given by a friend or family member at a funeral or memorial service that celebrates the life of the deceased. A eulogy provides friends and relatives attending the funeral with stories and memories that made your brother special to you. Writing a eulogy for a brother will hopefully help provide some closure to the death. The eulogy can provide the reader and audience with comfort and make a difficult situation easier to handle.
The best eulogies are written from the heart and include personal stories and memories. Talk about lessons you learned from your brother and provide examples. You may also want to talk about your brother’s major accomplishments, career, family, interests, hobbies, and so on.
Finally, remember that when writing a eulogy for a brother you should always focus the eulogy on his life and not death. Write about what made your brother special, your experiences together and the lessons he taught you. If you write the eulogy from your heart and focus on the positives you will have a well-written eulogy for the one you loved.
Eulogy For A Brother:
Thank you for being here today to celebrate the life of my brother, Michael. Mike was a loving and brilliant man and it is tragic that his life was cut so short.
Mike had recently been accepted to grad school at Duke University. He was very excited for school because he had never lived outside of the state and was passionate about business. He had big dreams and getting his MBA was a small step on his list of goals.
Mike and I were only one year apart in age and because of that we became very close. Like all brothers we had our disagreements growing up, but no matter what the argument we always settled it quickly and remained best friends. When we were kids we lived in a small house and had to share a room for many years. We often stayed up late at night talking, reading comic books or playing games. We developed a special bond that lasted to this day.
We both attended the same university and because of how closer we were in age shared a lot of the same friends. Mike was a ladies man and taught me a lot about women and relationships. He was far more outgoing than I was, but this served me well because he was always introducing me to people and inviting me to parties.
Even though Mike was so outgoing and the life of the party, he was also a hard worker and dedicated student. He always focused on his schoolwork and I knew he was going to excel at grad school. He also kept a part-time job throughout university and was able to pay for his entire education himself; something that I know he was very proud of.
A lot of you are likely asking yourselves why Mike’s life was taken away from us so soon. There is no answer to this question and I know that Mike would not want us to be sad. He always had a smile on his face and was a positive person. He would want us to remember all of the fun times we spent together. Mike was an incredible brother and friend. Let’s remember what a great person he was and make sure that his memory continues on in our hearts forever.
