um i am bad at writing my self but i could give you ideas if that would help?


You could perhaps write about how tragic it was for someone so young to be taken away but that he will always be remembered and that you shouldnt mourn but celebrate his life.


sorry its not much.


please offer my sympathies

How about Christina Rossetti? She wrote alot of poems people read at funerals. My favourite is "remember me" but she also wrote one about how you're not dead you're all around, waiting in the next room. I think the first line is" when i am gone my darling, sing no sad songs for me"

Stick it into Google and see what you come up with.

Good luck.

Yeah, Go with that. I read a passage written by myself at my grandmother's funerla. Antyhing about being loved, cared, great friend will suffice
Last night I dreamt that somebody loved me.

Another nice one starts "Death is nothing at all", by Henry Scott Holland. It was read at my grandmother's funeral, always makes me think of her...
