A very dear colleague died last week completely unexpectedly. He was a fantastic team member and a well respected and liked member of staff. I have been asked to give the eulogy which I am honoured that do and want to do him proud and express some of the feelings of colleagues. I want to say, we valued him, he was a good man and a great colleague. He was relentlessly positive, committed and proud. I would like to use an unusual quote does anyone know any

I don't have one to hand but I wanted to post. I'm sorry to hear about your colleague. I found some excellent quotes on pinterest, when I was looking for poems etc for my DM who passed away just before Christmas. Good luck and I hope you find something.

Would this be any use?

Epitaph On A Friend - Robert Burns

An honest man here lies at rest,
The friend of man, the friend of truth,
The friend of age, and guide of youth:
Few hearts like his, with virtue warm'd,
Few heads with knowledge so inform'd;
If there's another world, he lives in bliss;
If there is none, he made the best of this.

Robert Burns
