EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK The first stage of writing a eulogy is often referred to as information gathering. Experts recommend sitting down and brainstorming about the person you are commemorating before you begin the actual eulogy writing. By getting thoughts down in a free flowing manner, you may come up with details, stories, or attributes about the person that you may not if you try to follow a strict outline setting from the outset. Think about what the person looked like, hobbies, career, family life, and any stories you might want to share. The more details you can add the better. Don't worry about flow or organization at this point. All you are tying to do is get some ideas down on paper.
