Eulogy For A Best Friend

Updated on November 3, 2008

Sample Eulogy For A Friend


Writing a eulogy for a best friend can be a painstaking and daunting task to complete. During a time of grieving and loss, it may seem impossible to put together the eulogy speech that your friend deserves.

While there are eulogy tips to help you write and organize your thoughts, this article gives you a sample eulogy for a friend.

Sample Eulogy For A Friend

I would like to read one of Devon's favorite poems on friendship. It is by Robson Grant.

I know you're still out there

Living life with your kind of flair

Standing with your face to the sun

Picturing your time to come

Many clouds have passed by

Since we stood under the same sky

Taking in the summer sights

Howling at the city lights

I still remember when we were young

Pulling pranks just for fun

Summer vacations were such a blast

The kind of memories that will always last

Growing up the future seemed like such a sure thing

Thought we knew what it would bring

True love, a family, a house in the hills

Work hard, play hard and don't sweat the bills

Never guessed things would change so much

Thought our friends would never lose touch

The stars seemed so clear from our domain

I sure could handle some of those good times again

Even if our dreams still seem far away

Our friendship will be right here to stay

Until we are both gone

The road between us will never be too long...

Devon was such a dear friend to me. I will never forget how much fun we had together. I was having difficulty deciding what to say here today, so I decided to make a list, and talk about the things that I will miss most about her.

I will miss the way we used to laugh at silly things in the back of class, or pass notes to each other.

I will miss when we used to dress up, go to a fast food joint, and pretend we were eating at a fancy restaurant.

I will miss watching movies with you, and talking about how certain things in them could never happen.

I will miss the way you used to eat chocolate cereal with chocolate milk, even though I thought it was disgusting.

I will miss the way you used to stick your tongue out and squint our eyes every time you heard the word Barbaric. That was so weird to me.

I will miss talking to guys with you, and crying over them with you.

I will miss our weekend ski trips and summer rafting trips.

I will miss the way you snored before falling asleep.

I will miss our arguments over everything, but mostly over politics.

I will miss your hair, your eyes, your nose, your smile, your laugh, and your cry. They were all so wonderful to me.

But most of all, I will miss my friend. Devon, you were so important to me. I will never forget all the great times we had together. We experienced so much together, good and bad, but both came out the other side better people and closer friends. You were beautiful and charming, funny and annoying. I will miss everything about you.

I love you Devo.

      You can definitely see your expertise in the paintings you write. The sector hopes for more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid to say how they believe. At all times go after your heart.

      В бассейне Амазонии, а также на территории нынешних США и Канады - первобытные племена разного уровня развития. Как всё это будет дальше вертеться? Вопросы по устойчивости стержня.

      Very profound! I am so so sorry for your loss. Noone can ever take the place of the ones we've loved, but new ones will come into your life and you will love again for different reasons. Trust in that,,

      Thanks for sharing,
