An obituary is a necessary way for us to remember and honor the life of a loved one. It can provide memorial details such as the date, time, and place of services, and even includes information about the deceased person’s life. It can also help verify the death with a funeral home or home crematory. Obituaries can also help those who knew the deceased person to find more information and require confirmation of relationships and unique qualities, events, special relationships, etc. Include in the obituary their name and acknowledge their passing so that those looking to find guests for the funeral have a name and phone number.
Having an obituary can be a central place for family and friends to go to find out information about the loved one that has passed. It is ultimately up to the family to decide what type of obituary they want, whether it be in a newspaper or online on a community publication. The most common type of obituary is found in the local newspaper.
