The instructions for writing an obituary are included in the following text. One of our Funeral Directors will be there to assist with any last-minute details and will also make certain that the obituary is published in any publication that you specify. You should print the draft rather than write it down by hand so that you can avoid making any mistakes. If you are the one composing the obituary, please give Connelly-McKinley a physical copy, an emailed copy, and a stored copy on a USB. If you are the one typing the obituary, please provide a hard copy.
An obituary is frequently the first thing that people read in the newspaper each day, and for many people, it is also likely to be the last thing that will ever be written about their lives. It is more than just a simple “goodbye” to the deceased person; rather, it is a farewell that details the person’s life in the order that it occurred. An obituary not only informs readers that a person has died away, but it also details any funeral or memorial ceremonies that are planned to take place after the person’s passing. Once you have an idea of what you want to print, let us know, and we will submit it and obtain a price estimate for you.
The cost of running an obituary often fluctuates with the length of the obituary. In the event that you require any alterations to be made in order to cut expenses, we are able to carry them out at that time and resubmit them. People keep obituaries as a way to remember the people they loved, so you should make sure that the final product is something that would be worthy of a scrapbook and, more significantly, something that would be worthy of the memories of your loved one.
The announcement, a biography of the deceased, a schedule of services and memorials, and any other standard material should be included.The entire name of the departed person, together with their birth and death dates, is something that families typically wish to include in obituaries; however, due to the risks of fraud and identity theft, this is not something that should be done. Along with the text, you might want to think about including a photograph, which can either be in black and white or in color (depending on your preference), for an additional fee.
Recount in a succinct manner the major events that occurred throughout the life of the person who has passed away. This may include the schools that he or she attended and any degrees that were obtained in addition to the individual’s occupations or interests.
