Sample tribute to a special volunteer.
A tribute is something that you do, say, or build to show that you respect and admire someone or something. It is a gift, declaration or other acknowledgement of gratitude, respect or admiration. A tribute is an evidence attesting to some praiseworthy quality or characteristic.
You can write a tribute so it flows in chronological order, which is very easy for people to follow. The tribute can reflect different aspects of a person’s life, for example, family, friends, hobbies, work and holidays. Equally, it can be based on character traits.
If you know someone who is or has been struggling with cancer, consider writing a letter to them (whether they are deceased or alive) and letting them know how much their experience has touched you. Or if you are the one who has struggled with this disease, consider writing a letter to someone who impacted your life while you fought cancer.
Here's a sample tribute speech you're most welcome to use as a model for the speech you're preparing to write. It's for my mother, Iris, and yes, it's all true. You'll find the outline the speech follows directly below the text along with other helpful links to information about the writing process, funeral poems and quotations and more.
You can select text from this tribute collection or use your own. The two sections where the text is placed in a memorial background are limited to the amount of words that will fit. Since each memorial is custom created, I will make every effort to fit your text, please keep in mind the more words to fit, the smaller the type size in your custom memorial may be.
Write a poem as a tribute to the deceased family member or friend. Once you are happy with it you can get it written up beautifully by a calligrapher and then get it framed and hung on a wall within your home. Make a memorial dvd by going to all their favourite places and getting them on film.
