Mom’s Eulogy

In by Michael on August 9, 2011 at 12:17 pm

He began writing his mother’s eulogy at age 24, seven years before she died.

Someday she would pass away, and he knew his family would depend on him, always the performer, to memorialize her life.

His mother was perfectly healthy when he began writing, and he couldn’t shake the feeling that he was killing her slowly with each word he committed to paper.

He had read that newspapers prepare eulogies in advance for notable figures. Macabre, really. But ample time makes for good writing.

When the day came, everyone told him his words were as warm as his mother’s smile.
