Condolence Speech at My Friend Funeral

In the name of GOD, today I am standing next to my friend who is no more with us, lying in his coffin. I never ever expected that I would be having this day in my life but that’s what life is. It is unpredictable, uncertain, what we expect and what we face. I and john were school friends. We finished junior school together than we went to high school. I have almost spent my half of the life with him.

He was a brother from another mother to me; we had that bond between us. But now my dear friend has left me alone in this world without thinking what I will do without him. I am angry because he has broken his promise of being with me in every stage of life. But I promise him that I will fulfil all our dreams and will make his soul proud of me.

Dear John, I am never going to forget you because you were family to me. I know you are at a good place and looking at me with a smiling face buddy. You were one of the gems. I would like to say sorry to the departed soul’s family. I promise you that I will never make you feel alone, may God bless his soul and may he rest in peace.

Condolence Speech on Death of Friend

It is really sad and hard to believe that my friend, who was more like a brother to me, had passed away. I really don’t know how to begin and from where to begin because his support is hard to put in words for me. He had always been there for me and played a really significant part in my life, we became friends in high school and we made it till here. God knows why he wanted us to see this day, a day full of sorrow, and this day is going to leave an ever lasting impact on me because one thing is what I’m sure about, and I can never get a friend like him again.

We had more in common and were solely connected to each other since the day we met and little did I know what future had for both of us. Today, I really miss him because I’m at his funeral and it’s hard to believe that a person who took things on him just to save me from silly mistakes and the one who won so many hearts is no longer with us today. We promised to stay brothers till death do us apart and I would really appreciate it if his family will consider me as their own son because that’s going to make him feel good up there.

Putting it to the end, world will never get a guy like him again its always said that God takes the good people too early, but we have to be strong because God might have better plans for him. This is for my brother may your soul rest in peace.

Condolences Speech at My Friend Funeral

I am sorry but I can’t be formal today as you notice I am not even wearing a black tie just like the all of you sitting here. First and foremost I thank you all for being here. It was really hard for me to prepare this speech, I remember getting it wet a couple of times and then writing it over and over again just because every time I would try writing this speech his laughing face would just pop up in my head. I would cry and ruin the paper.

I haven’t lost a friend today, I have indeed lost a soul mate, someone who understood me more than I understand myself, someone who actually cared for me and not just say it. I lost a true friend today. I smile at all of you and think to myself “How lucky are these people!” Lucky how you ask? Try walking in my shoes for five minutes and you yourself would start considering yourselves lucky.
I have lost my friend and I know that his face is the face I would never ever see again. I won’t ever hear his voice ever again, never see him laugh, play pranks on him, call him stupid all the time without any reason. A man loses his integrity the day he loses his life partner, and a man loses his soul in the abyss the day he loses one of his friends.

David was a great person, always helpful, always caring, and always the first one to stand up to situations. Apart from having a great personality David absolutely loved to help people around him. I once remember how he and I walked out the restaurant with dinner in our hands and David happened to see a homeless man sitting in the corner of the alley. David randomly walked up to him, handed over our dinner, didn’t say a word, and when he turned back, saw me with suspiciousness in my eyes David exclaimed “He needed that more than us”. I was shocked and proud at the same time; at least someone was actually doing something and bringing a change to this world.

David loved children; he and I sometimes had disputes over this. As David was my roommate as well he would bring over any children he would see on campus in our room, and would start playing various games and doing activities with them. He loved to see them smile.

As I already said, I was proud of my friend because he made me proud all the time. He had the kind of personality that you would go with anywhere, risk anything and still not care, knowing David is always here to keep your back. I lost my brother to cancer today, and I hope I can make a change in this world… Not for me, not for you, not for this country, For David!

I miss you brother.
Thank you.
