Quoting a eulogy quote is one way of re-emphasizing a point during a funeral speech. These quotes are words of wisdom that may calm the bereaved.
Eulogy refers to a speech given when attending a funeral ceremony of beloved ones. It is basically a funeral speech that admires a person who has recently expired. The audience during funeral is in great agony for having lost their loved one. So, your eulogy should actually help to reduce their grief.
Sharing some fond memories of the bereaved minimizes the emotional pain. If you want to keep the audience engaged right through your funeral speech, adding some eulogy quotes in between is a must.
