Writing A Eulogy For SisterIf your sister has recently passed away, writing a eulogy for a sister is a nice way to pay tribute to her 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 sister special to you. Writing a eulogy for a sister 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 sister and provide examples. You may also want to talk about your sister’s major accomplishments, career, family, interests, hobbies, and so on.

Finally, remember that when writing a eulogy for a sister you should always focus the eulogy on his life and not death.  Write about what made your sister special, your experiences together and the lessons she 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 Sister:

It is with a heavy heart that I stand in front of you today to celebrate and remember the life of my younger sister Alexis. Losing a sister is never easy, but when their life is taken away at a young age it is far more difficult. I hope that by saying a few words about Alexis today it will help alleviate some of the grief that we are all feeling today.

Alexis was a brilliant young person with big dreams and goals. She was a positive person who lived every day of her life to the fullest.  Alexis put 100% into whatever task she undertook. She graduated high school with honors, while being the captain of the volleyball team, volunteering on weekends at the SPCA and working part-time at Starbucks.  After high school she went to UCLA and got a double major in math and science then went on to get her teaching certificate. She began to work as a high school teacher and worked part-time for two years on her master’s degree.

She was at such a happy place in her life. She accomplished her education goals, she was working at a career that she was passionate about and had recently met the love of her life. Her and John only met 1 year ago but I knew they were meant to be. I wasn’t surprised when they got engaged last month; she always talked to me about her wonderful their relationship was.

Alexis was the best sister that anyone could have asked for. Even though she was younger than me, she was incredibly mature and responsible. We loved to spend time together and were best friends. Alexis was there whenever I needed her and she knew that I would be there for her.

It is so sad that her life ended so early and tragically. It is hard to accept that she will no longer be with us. She was loved more than words can say. Her family, friends and students all loved and respected her. She was hard working, fun, caring and thoughtful. Her memory will live on in our hearts forever and we will never forget what a wonderful person she was.
