Early life

Start your dedication with a brief introduction to your loved one’s earlier years. Perhaps talk about things such as; place and year of birth, a background about their parents, early school days or stories they shared about their childhood.

Education & Career

Talk about the path they took into adulthood – perhaps they studied at college/university or maybe you share some of their outlook on how they dove straight into the working world. Note a few lines about their early jobs before going on to the roles they held for most of their career. You could mention any career highs or special accomplishments they held pride in. Also how they were regarded at work: a bright talent, a dedicated employee or maybe the life and soul of the party.

Family & Children

If your loved had a better half, talk about their/your time together; where and how they first met, the journey their relationship took, perhaps where and when they married and how they were welcomed by their in-laws! Share some touching insights into what made their relationships special, perhaps they had a ‘thing’ that was ‘so them’.

Talk about where they lived, first house through to their eventual settlement. If they had children, mention each one and the love and pride they held for them. Grandchildren too perhaps, and a story of the fun time they shared.

Hobbies & Interests

Everyone has an interest, even if they weren’t the adventurous type, share some information that the people who knew them well will relate to – and for the people that weren’t so close, that they’ll have learned a little more and feel a little closer to the departed. Talk about their eyes lighting up, discussing their favourite topics: sport, gardening, politics or art.

A Funny Story About Them

If they haven’t cropped up already, this is a perfect opportunity to revel in the happier moments of your loved one’s life. Everyone has an amusing incident stuck up their sleeve, something friends will remember and smile knowingly.

Thoughts About Them as a Person

A chance to sum up and reflect. Although the previous paragraphs will speak volumes about your loved one, in closing, tell everyone what they meant to you, what made them so special and why you will miss them.

Include a Poem or Song

Perhaps your loved one had a favourite song or there’s a poem you thought captured them particularly well. Mention it here and request that friends and family think of the departed every time they read the poem or hear the song.
