I can't remember where I read it - can someone help me find a eulogy from a scientist?

Whatever I read, it was something hypothetical, like "What a physicist would say at a funeral" or "What an organic chemistry scientist would say at a funeral". It was something about how mass and energy came from somewhere and would return back into the system. Entropy/enthalpy type stuff, I think. But it wasn't something obvious, like Neal Degrasse Tyson or Carl Sagan or Einstein. It was more of a short speech to comfort loved ones, a eulogy of sorts. Does this ring any bells?
