Grandpa Delivers The Eulogy At His Funeral by Julia Bergin

Three years prior to his death, Grandpa and father began formal discussions for his funeral. Whilst they disagreed over size and music, there was consensus that Grandpa should speak on the day of his departure. In March this year, the funeral planning committee’s recommendations took effect; Grandpa addressed the congregation from his casket, delivering the eulogy at his own
funeral.
