Eulogy for a Brother
A couple weeks ago, my brother-in-law, Atul, passed away due to his illness leaving both sides of the families devastated. Although we were fighting against all the odds, we all had so much hope that Atul would make it given his positive attitude and great will power. He had the will to survive and had so many reasons to live for. Life is too short. I realize this now more than ever.
We are gathered here today in the memory of my brother, Darrell, so that together we may acknowledge and share both our joy in the gift that his life was to us, and the pain that his passing brings. In sharing the joy and the pain together today, may we lessen the pain and remember more clearly the joy. Darrell was just 67 years old when he passed away on Tuesday at St. Darrell spent his life in Springfield, farming for over 40 years. Darrell was very close to his family, to his friends, and also his beloved cat, Crackers. He would pick on us constantly, but let anyone else even look at us funny, and Darrell would be on our side, whatever may come. Darrell was good to his friends and employers, the Edwards family, and they were good to Darrell — their care and support during his last years especially, is very much appreciated by all of us.
God saw you getting tired And a cure was not meant to be. So he put his arms around you And whispered 'Come to Me'. With tearful eyes we watched you As we saw you pass away. Although we loved you deeply, Your Golden Heart stopped beating, Hard working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us. He only takes the best.
After a three-year fight with cancer, my brother-in-law, Rick Murray, passed away last week. He was only years-old. The first is simply because I like to have an archive of my writing. The second, more important reason, is that I feel as a society we are really bad at dealing with death. When I went looking for inspiration for his eulogy, I was aghast at the crass websites I found. Thankfully a friend of mine had posted a eulogy he wrote for his father.
