A Brother Honors His Sister
It was her second marriage. In lieu of gifts, memories were asked to be brought to the reception. Her brother had a great idea. After all, she was his big sister. He knew her as well as anyone, but was not a public speaker. He called me.
I asked him a few questions to learn who he is, what his relationship with his sister is like, and what impact he wanted the speech to have.
I scripted a three-minute speech complete with tips for how he could deliver the speech effectively.
His response to what I prepared?
"It was like you knew us. When I got to the part when [a difficult event in his family's life], I teared up. Thank you. This is exactly what I wanted."
