In UK we would call a speech given at a funeral an eulogy.

Consult friends, colleagues and family who will give you a close insight into the deceased's life and give you ideas.

Keep the speech short no more than five minutes.

Honour the person mentioning particular acheivements - their personality and what they did for other people - some aspects of their unique life - something amusing in their life - a particular memory you have of that person.

Above all be honest in what you say and speak from the heart. Do not mention any negative points.

You will be filled with emotion be prepared to take a deep breath when giving the speech. Print it in large print - and have someone standing by in case you find the occasion too overwhelming and can pass the typed speech over for completion.
