I am about to go and read a eulogy at a relative’s funeral. Last year I read a eulogy which was written by my mum for one of her close friend’s who passed away from a long illness. My mum was to upset to read what she wrote so I volunteered to read it at the service.
Foolishly I giggled during the reading, it was a funny memory my mum had she wanted to share at the service. I nearly died of embarrassment as it was held in a church.
Now this is a different matter, I have not seen this relative in years. I really did like them, and I volunteered to read a eulogy their spouse has written as well as one from my mum and an uncle.
I have not seen my larger family in ages and I feel nervous having to give the reading. I just don’t want to break down or giggle.
The reason I offered to read these outs is because I don’t cry at funerals. I pay my respects and I greive internally. I might sob and get teary but that is it.
Can anyone please give me some pointers so I get the jitters under control?
