He built a hospital to help animals and he bought lots of land to give animals a safe place to live.
He took me and my brother and my Mum with him all the time.
You’re looking for stories, perspectives, memories, music and food associated with that person; mental images about the life of the deceased.
After you’ve brainstormed for an hour or so, step back and look at what you’ve got, along with the notes you took when talking with family and friends.
When I see a crocodile I will always think of him and I know that Daddy made this zoo so everyone could come and learn to love all the animals.
Daddy made this place his whole life and now it's our turn to help Daddy.
Step Three- Develop a theme The theme of your eulogy is a way to tie together some of the best stories, images, and impressions from your sessions into a somewhat unified piece.
Don’t feel as though you need to make sense of the death, provide some profound insight, or ‘make things better’ by finding some silver lining or rationalization for the death.
Step Two- Brainstorming and editing Brainstorming will be similar to your conversation with the family, only this time it’s just you.
Write down any ideas that come to you about the deceased, whatever they happen to be. A small idea may lead to a great one, so just open up and allow any ideas to come out onto your paper.
