Updated on November 30, 2016
Venkatachari M profile image

Venkat passed through lots of ups and downs in life with frequent health issues of family members ,gained much experience in tackling them.

How to write a tribute

If you have been in deep love with somebody whom you lost, then writing a tribute speech or the tribute article is quite easy a job.

  • Start with the incident of how you developed the relationship due to some good or special qualities in that person.
  • Narrate the incidents revealing those attributes, the actions, activities, and habits that project those good qualities.
  • Reflect on all those moments of life spent with that person and highlight on some outstanding performances revealing the honesty, generosity, affection, love, valor, determination, will power, special skills like art, craft, music, dance, administration, management, bravery, etc.
  • Then you can tell your ending words of tribute expressing thanks, blessings or wishes using your prose or poetry or tribute lyrics and also by quoting some bible quotes on death and union with God, seeking peace to the soul of that person.

Here is a link to some of the guidelines for writing a tribute speech or essay.

Accepting Fact and coping with Death of your Spouse

Actually, it is not a kind of remembering her. She is always and will always remain with me in my heart. No question of forgetting her. It is only enlightening and discussing some of the facts and events related to her life and thereby strengthen my memories of her and to make myself cope with the truth of her loss or absence.

It is more than 2 years (2 years 4 months to say exactly) since she left us, but it seems happened just recently. She was finding it difficult to breathe and fighting for life, even though it was only for two minutes, in my younger son's hands (he was 30 years old then) in that black midnight while I was running here and there to find some medicine and call for the ambulance. Only two minutes it took for her to leave us in utter darkness and to fly herself in search of light in the sky. We cannot weep, because we are men, I and both of my grown up sons. All were struck in shock and could not believe the fact that she left us. Our neighbor, a lady Doctor confirmed that she is no more and we could not trust her with a wish to see her breathe again. But, no, she determined herself to leave and so no return was to be there. And we had to accept the fact and make ourselves prepared for our future journey without her.

She was Abode of all Best Qualities in a woman

She was full of kindness and love to all of us and to her neighbors. She never let us feel discomfort or unhappy at any circumstance by attending to all our needs timely and beforehand. She has been a great support to me in all my bad times and confusions giving advice that are prudent and workable. She was the good wife since beginning throughout my life journey and she has been helpful to her neighbors also in their bad times. She used to offer food and other assistance to them and used to be always ready to help them in spite of inconvenience to her own self. They used to come at odd times also to seek her help in knitting, stitching or some other material help.

She has been very kind to birds and animals also. We used to keep parrots and myna birds for many years. She used to be very kind to those birds and always taking care of them. If any bird did not want to stay, she used to let her free immediately. She used to celebrate the birthdays also of those birds by celebrating on completion of each one year of their being with us. We used to enjoy much with those birds.

A woman of great determination and patience

She has been very unlucky since her birth. She lost her father even when she was in her mother's womb. This made her mother develop hatred towards her. She totally neglected this child and she was brought up by her eldest sister. But she had to work there and assist the sister in her work, neglecting studies. Even then she completed her Intermediate with good marks and after marriage, she completed her degree also. All her siblings (total 10) disliked her and accused her as the cause of their father's death and tried to exploit and ill-treat her in one way or other. But she was bold enough to face the circumstances. Even after marriage, she had a difficult life due to financial problems and also due to the misbehavior of her siblings. But she was determined to face the circumstances and never lost hope or became tense. But mentally she had many disturbances. Even then, she faced everything boldly and got cured herself by visiting the psychiatrists and taking their advice for many years. But then physically she deteriorated facing so many problems including our elder son's mental problems. Even then, she faced everything so boldly and courageously that, until her last minute, she kept fighting and controlling all diseases like BP, Diabetes, etc. everything smilingly and then that fateful night came on 22/10/2012 ending her life on earth. I started blogging only after that date by posting a post on 27/10/12 describing how death takes away life stealthily without your notice.

She has been a Woman of great talents

She has been a singer since her childhood. She used to narrate me the tales of her singing devotional songs along with her grandmother when she was of only 1 or 2 years old. Those were the only happy days when her grandmother was with her for 2 years. She continued this singing habit until her death. She had a very melodious voice and all people liked her songs throughout her childhood in schools to her prime age and even at old age among all neighbors. She imitated the voices of all four famous lady singers in India of that time in the Telugu language like P. Susheela, L.R.Eswari, etc. I loved her voice so much and enjoyed her singing throughout my life. At present, I have her recorded songs in a cassette which were recorded 6 months before her death. She used to sing all Hindi songs as well. But I am sorry that I could not promote her voice to bring her some fame. It was her bad luck to marry me.

She was very good at knitting and stitching and in home decoration. She used to knit the woolen sweaters for me, herself and our sons and other times to neighbors also. And she used to stitch designs on sarees also which were liked by all. She presented one saree to the Doctor who treated her for Schizophrenia and she was much appreciated for her talent at that time in 1996 by many people.

Woman of Fight against Corruption

She used to be very sensitive and honest. She never liked people who were dishonest and of malicious intentions. She used to be very straight forward and tell the blunt truth over the face if somebody was wrong or mischievous. She always stood against corruption and intentional mischief by anybody. She even did not tolerate anybody doing harm to our neighbors and tried to restore justice to them at all times (from others and from our administration in the colony where we lived). Most neighbors took help from her in such matters. But she got resistance from some of the people in such works who tried to threaten her. She faced them boldly because of her sensitivity to generosity and kindness to those in need. All, who got help from her, regarded her with great respect.

Some of the Bible quotes on Death

Bible Quotes about Death:

John 14:1-4

Jesus told "In my Father's house (Heaven) are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And, if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and take you to myself, that where I am you may be also."

So, there is no need to regret or be worried as the dead person is only going to live with Jesus and God.

2 Corinthians 5:6-8

"We are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord."

So, don't be afraid of death. Rather welcome it with love.

My advice for surviving the death of a spouse

In the end, I would like to say that I am very proud to have been her husband and thank God for sending her into my life as my wife for all those 38 years since 1974 to 2012. May her soul be happy wherever it is.

  • Remember or recite some of those quotes from Bible or from Bhagavad Gita on Death and afterlife of the soul.
  • You should be thankful to God for having been with your spouse all through those years.
  • Your unhappiness can make her/ his soul wander with worries. So you must control yourself.
  • See and think of all those great moments of life that you enjoyed in her/ his company.
  • Think of your children that were left with you and be a support to them.
  • Try to complete all the unfulfilled tasks and wishes of your spouse.
  • Do something that will keep the name and fame of your spouse intact.
  • It will not be so difficult for you in coping with the death of your spouse when you think of all those sweet memories and the tasks ahead to be completed in your life.

So, be brave and endure the loss for achieving something that is still left out in the middle by your beloved spouse.

My thanks to a Hubber

I would like to express my thanks to Sunshine 625 (Linda Bilyeu) for giving me the inspiration in writing this hub. I got stimulated by her tribute to her Mother. On reading that hub, I thought why shouldn't I write about my reflections on my wife's death and how I am coping with the loss. And, the result is this tribute of mine to my wife.

      Thanks, Manatita, for this nice and lengthy feedback regarding love, death, and grace of God. Yes, I believe she is lying there in the lap of that Eternal Supreme Being and from there watching and guiding us.

      You were asking about that movie we watched on Sunday. It was about the busting of a gang of child kidnappers who were operating internationally. The hero, whose own daughter got kidnapped, traces the gang facing many hardships through the mountains, valleys, and tunnels somewhere in Europe border (I think) and frees thousands of victims including his own daughter. But, he gets killed in the end. We enjoyed the movie with that noble theme.

      A very poignant tale of love and courage, sometimes in the face of adversity. I'm glad that you wrote that piece. Feels like a healing piece, one giving you the capacity to carry on.

      Perhaps her Heart was full. She led a rich life and God gave her a noble and beautiful husband and children. Once He was happy, He called her home. Perhaps she is looking over you.

      One can only say so much in times like these. The one at the end of the loss knows best. I have written some lofty poems on parting and Rumi has too. Yet everything is personal to the individual Soul and his or her inner Pilot.

      The Venkatachari I know, is a peaceful and loving man and so one can say that perhaps the sun is still shining even when the shadows are dense.

      I like the idea that you wrote a tribute and that the second video reflected it so well ... a combination of human Love and love for Christ, which ultimately cements the relationship. A very meaningful and powerful message. Much Love, My B, and I hope that the movie was worth seeing for you and son.

      May your wife continue to be in the lap of the Eternal, the birthless, deathless and ever-compassionate One. Om Shanti!!

      Well, I have to say, I am 45 this month, and I still haven't found a suitor that suits me. lol. So, I can relate to both son's singleness. I am, however, lucky to have had long engagements that bore me beautiful children. Even so, I never got to participate in a wedding march. In your country, I would probably be shunned for having children out of wedlock. It is very common here in America though.

      As far as your regrets of not helping your wife share her talents more globally; I like to think sometimes not being famous or becoming wealthy for our talents is actually a blessing not regret. As I have questioned in these last months' God's presence in my own life and in this world, something in me still wants to believe he has a particular guided path for everyone, which teaches and shows each of us in a special light even if it is not on an upscale status. I see your wife more beautiful and -awe inspiring- because she did not relate to fame or wealth. She was purer that way. More valuable to the lives she touched. Be proud of that Venkat. You and she had many blessings, and you have lovely memories of her. Peace and love my friend! ~Missy

      Missy, I am really happy that you enjoyed this hub and found it to be a good work. But, what I feel sorry for is that I could not help her in improving her skills and get some recognition publicly which she deserved like other performing artists. All that we have presently is a taped audio of 10 songs (Telugu language) recorded a few weeks before her death and some of those knittings and designer sarees that I showcased in above photos. She wished that her grandchildren get some of her skills and do something noteworthy. But, the elder one decided not to marry anybody and the other son is still looking for a match. And, he is already 37!

      I really enjoyed reading this Venkat. Your wife sounds lovely. I find often, that it is the most special people who have the worst luck when it comes to health and wealth. However, I believe you were wrong when you said part of her bad luck was marrying you. I think you were probably, along with your sons, her one true happiness, and her reason to get up and be joyful. I can tell she found strength to overcome obstacles in many ways during her marriage to you. She was extremely talented, and you gave her the courage to be herself. What a great couple!

      I love that she had such a love for birds. That shows her inner beauty, and who knows, if we come back to this life as something, maybe she is a beautiful bird that visits your window sill from time to time.

      You have not only given a blessed tribute to your lovely wife here, Venkat, but you also took the time to try to teach values that you have learned through the beauty of marriage and the sadness of death. I think you taught well here a message of appreciating and loving a person while you have them. If you have a great union and one passes suddenly, you will have such fond memories of that loved one. Your memories of your beloved were beautiful. :)

      Thanks, Alun. I very much appreciate your feelings on reading this hub even though it is unfeatured since some months due to lack of traffic and lack of search results. And thanks for such nice comment and feedback.

      I am really proud of her and remember her daily with love and admiration.

      Greensleeves Hubs 9 months ago from Essex, UK

      This was very touching and heartfelt Venkatachari, and I am sure it struck a chord with so many, bringing tears to eyes. One part - the night of your wife's death with your son and you - brought back poignant memories of the death of my mother. The whole piece in fact was poignant.

      So many of the reminiscences - the birds, her singing, her handiwork (and the evidence of that handiwork which you kept) - all demonstrate the depth of your feeling, and although it sounds like she had a hard life in many ways, and may have struggled with lack of health, with lack of warmth from some relatives, and lack of money, it seems there were treasures, and the greatest of those is the treasure of love which you shared. Many go through life without love, so take comfort from the fact that you were both rich in what really mattered.

      There is only one sentence I must take issue with, when you say ' it was her bad luck to marry me.' I suspect from the way you write that it was her good luck to marry you, as it was yours to marry her.

      I hope all is as well with you today as it can be, and with your family too. Alun

      True. We excuse often that there is no time for them. But, the real gap is recognised when they are no more. You might be having his remembrances with you or you can spend with his family some times to bridge the gap being felt by you now.

      A heartfelt tribute to a spouse. May her soul rest in peace. Generally. we forget that the time we spend with our loved ones is short lived. Our ego and personal barriers sometimes keep us away from our close friends. I want to abridge the gap which developed between me and my friend, but he is no more.

      Thanks Graham, for your nice comment. Yes, men also need to shed tears to get relief from grief, but may not be openly. My wife used to tell that men should not weep like women. I think it is because others in the family may get sinking feeling if their head himself weeps.

      M. Venkatachari - this is the most beautiful tribute to your wife. It brought tears to my eyes. You obviously loved and respected this lady so much and she did work so hard under challenging conditions all her life to make other peoples' lives worthy. In doing this she proved herself to be such a very worthy person. I cannot imagine growing up in a family where there was no love, blaming me for my father's death all those years. A baby and young child need so much love and encouragement to grow into capable self-confident adults and your wife had nobody to guide her in this way except two years with her grandmother. You said that she was "unlucky to marry you". I think she was the luckiest person in the world to find and marry you. After all her years of being unloved and mistreated, you came into her life and gave her love and appreciation for everything she did for you and the boys you both created. I think you have wonderful memories to live with, except for the night that she died suddenly. that is very sad and I encourage you not to think about that night so often. Instead remember the wonderful times you had together and the kind and wonderful person she was. You were lucky to have each other for those 38 years.

      Harish Prasad, thank you for your nice comments. It's true. Our spouse is our half body. So when separated, we are left with only half of our body. Wish you all the best.

      BTW, your profile does not show any content. It seems you removed all your content. I don't know why.

      As in the west, we in the east also regard our spouse as our better half ( Ardhangini ). This wonderful tribute shows your true love and respect for your wife. I love the concluding para that tells about you expressing your gentle feelings to her.

      She was a brave lady who faced all turmoil with great courage and showered her love and affection. You have really brought forth a great hub about such a great soul. I pray God to rest her in all peace in Heaven ! Voted up and shared.

      Hi that was such a beautiful piece.

      Your wife's liufe has not been in vain.

      Her love for you and the children and the neighbours makes her a role model. She will continue to live in the minds of all the children and the people that were around her. May God continue to give you the peace beyond all understanding to cope with this loss and may your children also the given this peace. Keep on blogging. You are an inspiration.

      Venkatacharim, this is such a beautiful tribute to your lovely wife. You are both very lucky to have found each other and share life. I voted Up, Awesome, Beautiful, and Interesting. I also voted Useful, for to read how much you love and appreciate her is a message to others to appreciate and respect one's spouse for all they do and for all they are. Your wife must be very proud and loving of you as she rests in peace. I enjoyed learning about your wife through you. Thank you for sharing your tribute to such a lovely lady.

      Very touching, emotional and convincing. Your love is well reflected in these lines which is nothing but a poem. Her love and talent are well described here. I share your feeling. I understand your pain. My tributes to the departed soul. I too hope God will keep her soul always happy. The god will definitely convey your love story to her tonight and she will be so happy and proud of her loving and caring husband. God bless you.
