About.com and the Your Tribute website offer helpful suggestions on writing funeral remembrance speeches. Most remembrances are presented during a funeral or memorial service, so experts recommend keeping the length of these speeches to 10 minutes or less.
About.com reminds readers that delivering a eulogy is an honor and a way to recollect the best things about the deceased person. They advise combining personal memories with information collected about the deceased, then organizing the information before beginning to write.
Your Tribute emphasizes the need to keep the speech short and focused, and not to get off track from talking about the deceased individual.
