Frank Memorial

Below is a speech I wrote for my father’s funeral. He passed in September. When I wrote it I just wanted to say something positive at the funeral and not have it be a totally sad occasion. I thought all this would sound corny, but a lot of people told me they liked it and asked me for copies of it. I think a funeral speech should be personal and not plagiarised from someone else. I feel you should write your own ideas and not copy another’s. I feel it might happen regardless unfortunately, so I might as well put it out there. I don’t claim to be a writer.

      1. Well said my friend. Cooperation and respect of differences was in place, I think we realized that racism was wrong a generation ago, but msm fueled race wars, riots, constant crisis has divided us. I truly think it was intentional, false flag events to demoralize society. The Build back better motto is essentially “order out of chaos” which is on the US dollar bill.

  1. Thank you for sharing your lovely tribute to your dad! My father passed 7/5/21, I did not get an opportunity to say anything at his funeral, but I would not have known what to say, so that is probably good I was not asked. And, I am an extremely emotional person, so I would probably not have made it without crying my eyes out.

    1. I can’t believe I was able to do it myself. I wanted to say something though and I wanted to be positive. I did not want his funeral to be all sadness. I met with the minister and asked specifically to speak for 5 minutes or less and said I wanted to have a message that was not sad. We heard a few times his death was coming. He did not do well with a normal procedure and a normal surgery. He had hospice so I guess we were prepared. I know though. A friend told me she never could have done this at her dad’s funeral. He had such a peaceful last few days. I think that helped.

  2. Frankly, wonderful. You not only had good things to say about your Dad, but, many good things. There are some I know who most would be hard pressed to say a good word about. He has left quite a legacy. Cheers. Allan
