Not Every Ex-Wife Gets to Speak…

Here’s Cher’s heartfelt eulogy for Sonny Bono, delivered at his 1998 funeral. The short speech more than meets the first, most important requirement of a good eulogy in that it’s totally selfless, delivered without ego. She’s crying throughout, but her stories are funny, endearing and memorable. Her only flub is in calling her own eulogy “stupid,” when it’s quite brilliant, not stupid at all.
