My living room is also an emergency room some days

Living in a big city like London is an experience that everyone should have at least once in their life, big cities never sleep. Indeed, there is always something you can do, you can always find a restaurant or a takeaway place available. Moving from the countryside was at first hard, I was used to barely hearing cars driving pass my house, ambulance sirens were the most unusual thing ever and the food was always available only from the fridge.

My two cats will agree with me on the fact that the countryside was a perfect place to rest, but sometimes seeing more human beings is healthy and even fun. I enjoy my time in London, I have an awesome job and I get holidays fairly often. On the other hand, all of my friends have the type of job where you are lucky if you can get annual leave on Christmas. One day we decided to have a sushi night, everyone brought their favorite ingredients and while we chatted everyone was rolling their own sushi.

By the second bottle of wine and about 5 sushi rolls each, one of my friends started arguing about the fact that we have known each other for almost eight years now and we have never traveled together. Everyone in the room turned into friends for every mood and started wondering what traveling together will be like. Three hours later we were looking for air tickets to go to Mexico in one month for two weeks.

After we searched and even booked air tickets and hotels we realized we didn’t consider the tiny detail that everyone would be at work on those dates. Emily was at the other side of the table, I saw her disappeared a couple of times and she barely participated when we were planning our spontaneous trip. Once we mentioned the issue of getting permission for an early holiday at work she starts handing out a form to everyone. Suddenly my living room became an emergency room with sick people from pneumonia, a broken rib, and two gastric ulcers. She had indeed created five different doctors fake notes so everyone could get away from work for our trip.

When we asked her where or how did he manage to have a fake note from the Dr, she just smiled back to us and said that it was her secret for a long time now that she’s been using to get her vacations paid. We were so amazed that on what she had revealed to us and we told her that her secret is too good for her to keep alone. She laughed and said: “now it’s ours” and everyone got so happy.


A funeral speech is an opportunity to send a departed, loved friend or family member a message. Yet, the message isn’t delivered to them but the entire community of people who have known him or her through the years. The message is inevitably one which contains some amount of grief and sorrow — yet at the same time, it isn’t a message that revels in the sadness of the loss, but celebrates the joy and inspiration of the vital qualities of the one who passed.

Conveying this message is necessarily filled with a certain eloquence — a certain poetry if you will — to have a powerful impact in the hearts and souls of those attending. The rhyme and rhythm of the delivery has as much to do, if not more, than the factual points you are conveying. By addressing the eulogy from a poetic vantage point, you are tapping into a deeper facet of the departed’s humanity that has not perhaps been fully felt by everyone, but an aspect that has to be conveyed before the departed and their contribution to the planet can finally rest in peace.

Giving your eulogy involves taking a few steps of pause in advance to ensure that you are delivering a message that is not only heartfelt, but that is capturing the genuine vibration of the one who has left. Taking a few breaths during the delivery allows the audience to fully feel what you are expressing, and to evoke their warmth and gratitude for the departed’s presence in their own lives. If you’re looking for a great funeral speech example, there are several places online.

Funeral speeches have a variety of forms, but a clear function of bringing to the surface, and taking to the depths, the spirit of the one who passed through the minds, hearts, and souls of those in attendance. Your ability to convey a rich message filled with the qualities that demonstrate the inherent value of the one who left is critical to the success of delivering an impactful eulogy.

Compose the Best Eulogy

Whether you have deeply loved someone who has died or you are requested to give a eulogy at a funeral from someone you barely know, the key to the funeral speech going off without a hitch is in the preparation. Funeral speeches, by nature, are not something that most people desire to give, but when done well, they can be a tribute which lasts in the memories of fellow mourners and create a healing way for you to express your care for the deceased.

First, consider the intrinsic traits of the deceased. Was she kind? Was he a joke-maker? Did she remember every birthday and holiday with a card or homemade treat for the kids? Could he identify a bird through the mere hearing of a single tweet? These are the memories that you may choose to include in your eulogy. If you knew the person well, this may produce more than enough fodder for a good eulogy, but if you didn’t, consider contacting a person close to the deceased to learn of these cherished traits.

When you get ready to compose your writing, a selection of poetry is always a nice touch. Grab a book or search the internet for a piece that describes the type of impact that the deceased had on the world, a spiritual, religious, or philosophical piece on life and death, something the deceased favored, or a passage of Scripture. In selecting a great passage, it is important to tie it in to the person, the occasion, and the underlying sentiment of how this person has impacted the world or how this person being gone from the world will affect those left behind or bless the person in eternity.

While you will weave each of the components into one cohesive piece, don’t forget to begin any funeral speeches you may write with a warm yet solemn introduction and a hopeful, yet sober ending. Positive humor can be incorporated, especially if the deceased had a favorite joke to tell, or if there is a funny anecdote of a time spent with the deceased, but include these with appropriate sentiment. Finally, always be sure not to utilize humor at the deceased’s expense or make comments that could be hurtful to anyone in attendance.

The key to a solid funeral speech is to make the eulogy personal, meaningful, and emotionally compelling for yourself as well as the attendees.
