Hardly any of the numerous funerals I have been to had people in the family speaking--just the person doing the service--pastor, priest, rabbi, etc. I've never even consisdered speaking at any of my close family members' funerals. So if it makes, you uncomfortable, don't do it.

I'm sorry to hear you have lost your grandmother.

I am sorry for your loss. I would tell storied about her and the things she loved to do. Tell everyone the things that she taught you about life. You will find the words, just talk from your heart.

I am so sorry for your loss.

Say what is in your heart - or, know that it is okay not to say anything.

At my dad's funeral in November, I gave the eulogy. I had lots to say.

When my niece lost her battle with cancer in March, I just could not speak.
