Your Guide to Writing an Obituary

Funeral Home Oahu

Obituaries are important parts of funeral services, but being asked to present one can be overwhelming. Keep in mind that the obituary you write can come from the heart, and that you will be surrounded by family and friends who share in your grief when you deliver it. These tips will help you prepare for future funeral services.

Start by making a list of the points you want to highlight. It is a good to share the achievements of your lost loved one, but also remember to include glimpses into his or her personality. Your list will help you organize your thoughts and prevent you from leaving out important points. Ask other people close to the deceased to share their own memories so you can incorporate a variety of relationships into your speech.
