Readings are a very important part of the funeral.
You can include poems, quotes, bible readings, and
personal stories in the funeral.
Writing a eulogy is always a really nice way to
remember your child. Remember the sweet moments
and write them down. Talk about the good times in
their short little life (no matter how brief), you can
even talk about the dreams you had for them, and
what you will miss and enjoyed about your child. If
they were a little older, you will be able to talk about
who they were, what they enjoyed to do, funny
stories, sweet moments, and anything else that
speaks of their life.
*Keep it positive, not focusing on the sad things that
led to their death. Focus on the happy times and
*Remember songs your child enjoyed, little toys and
games they liked, how they interacted with you and
*It's okay to reflect on what you will miss and what
you had dreamed they would do and who they would
*Eulogy should be about 5 minutes. But, you can
make it as long or short as you like.
*Eulogy should be written by mom or dad if possible.
You knew your baby/child best and there is no one
better to write about their life. You should consider
however having someone else read this for you at the
funeral if you think this would be difficult to read.
