Sometimes, brothers-in-law come in the form of “brothers from another mother”. They give you all the support you need as a husband or wife to their sibling and care for you just like their own brother.
If you’re grieving the loss of a brother-in-law, we hope you find solace in our sample eulogies, poems, and speeches you could use to pay him tribute on his funeral.
Sample Eulogies / Tributes for Late Brother-in-law
He loved us,
He is lost to life,
How will we live with this strife?
They were meant to be,
He was her happy ending,
Don’t remember him by the way he died,
Remember him by the way he lived,
He was a good guy,
Honest and true,
Now you see us,
We are oh so blue,
Now he’s gone from this earth,
We will celebrate with a birth,
With the last bit of David,
Though we will never forget,
The good things he has done,
And the happiness he has brought to everyone
From the sound of your voice to the sparkle in your eyes.You always had a way with words.
To me you knew everything,
until one fateful day.The day I saw you dead will be the day I will never forget.
the day will scar me until it is my time to join you.
The voice that once spoke is now silenced.
The cute smile that lit up will never be seen,
but only in my memory.
I have always loved you and I always will
Things just haven’t been the same,This just does not seem real,
And who is there to blame?Do not question God, that’s what they say,
But who can explain why they took my brother-in-law away?
My wife (your sister) misses you so much. I miss you too; I have so much to say,
Your siblings always mention your name.
Such a good person,
a caring man,
and a great friend.
You are in a much better place now,
All your problems have gone away,
But remember we will meet on the other side
One sweet day!!!!!!!
The day you left,
was a day no one expected.
that day was very hectic.
no one could understand why.
no chance to even say goodbye.
but deep inside I know that you are okay.
I still remember your goofy laugh till this day.
no matter what people have to say about you.
I knew all the good things you used to do.
this is my goodbye letter,
letting you know that we miss you, and love you.
and things will NEVER be the same.
My husband and I think about you every day
We miss your laugh
We miss your smile
Neither lost nor forgotten…
We imagine them oftenIt just doesn’t seem real that you’re not around
We still look for you when we’re in town…
I’ll never forget on the 4th of July…
As I sat on the curb, tears filled my eyes….
I found myself looking for you…..
Until I realized what was true…I will never again see your wave and your smile…
We won’t stand on the street and visit for a while…
No “Our wife, how are you doing?” with a big hug to follow….
No “Your meals are yummy” when you visit…
All of these things, I cherish so dearly …
In my heart, I remember so clearly…
I’ve asked myself and I’ve talked to God…..
How could he take you away for so long?
The only answer that makes any sense is ….
You’re in God’s hands now…
As he planned
Watching us from above…
An Angel in heaven who will always be loved.
A generous hand and an active mind
Anxious to please and loath to offend
A loving brother, caring brother-in-law and faithful friend
We’ll all miss you very much
Gone so fast.
Now all we have
Of our past.You are loved by so many.
You might not
But in our hearts
You have grown.The memories
I have throughout
Laughter and tears.
My wish now will be
To have you back healthy
I will miss you
Oh so much.
So will all
The lives that
I can’t say goodbye.
I can’t accept
You will live in my heart
Until my last breath
And a cure was not meant to be.
So he put his arms around you
And whispered ‘Come to Me’.
With tearful eyes we watched you
As we saw you pass away.
Although we loved you deeply,
Your Golden Heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us.
He only takes the best.Those we love remain with us
For love itself lives on,
And cherished memories never fade
Even though a loved one is gone,
Those we love can never be
More than a thought apart,
For as long as there is memory,
They’ll live on in the heart.
Brother, you knew how to live and embrace every moment. You had a lot of great qualities but the most endearing to me was to get people to open up.
You made me always feel comfortable enough to share my worries and you at all times gave me assurance.
Brother, you accomplished so much in your life time but unfortunately your life was not long enough to enable you fulfill all your dreams. You were always there for the family. You toiled so much, cared and shared so much. Never did we think you will leave us so soon.
I am proud and glad that I had the opportunity to spend quality time with you during your last days. I will never forget how incredibly grateful you were towards the support you had from me while in hospital. Even in pain you managed to say, “thank you”. You were all I could ask for in a brother-in-law. It has been a wonderful privilege to have known you.
Brother, I cannot over emphasize how much we prayed for your recovery.
I remember vividly your hugs and goodbyes at the hospital when I was leaving.
I remember our last conversion over the phone and that goodbye. Little did I know it was forever.
Brother, may you rest in the hands of the LORD who Gives and Takes.
Rest in Perfect Peace.
