Writing an obituary is not an easy task. How to accurately and respectfully summarize a person's life? It's such a complex art form that some people spend their entire careers writing obituaries. Learning to write an obituary takes time, and should be sensitive to the information surrounding the deceased. It is important to write an obituary for a loved ones in order to honor their life and announce their passing. While it may be emotionally challenging, it is a way to celebrate their achievements and legacy. It may also help process the grief experienced after a loved one’s death.
How do you write a respectful obituary?
Share unique details about the person's life that maybe few people know about (certainly nothing embarrassing). What makes them special, interesting, interesting, popular, etc.? It will help to try writing the obituary in the writer's own voice or style to best reflect the writer's personality. Then read it to some family members for feedback before printing it. Really taking the time to consider what else the deceased loved is worth mentioning. It might even be an inanimate object. Let's say a loved one is passionate about cars and, if possible, works on a specific car every day. You should wink it in the obituary.
- Write an obituary that is accurate and impartial.
- Do not write the obituary in the first person or use phrases like "Joe Friend's family announced" because the obituary is not about the person or family who wrote it, but about the deceased. Written from a third-person perspective, as an outsider or bystander who witnesses an event.
- Write an obituary that describes important events that happened in the deceased's life. Imagine writing an obituary for an old college friend -- someone who hasn't been in touch with the deceased in decades, but still wants to get an update on their lives since the last time they met.
- An obituary serves as a physical keepsake for a loved one's life that the writer can always have. They can be cut out of paper or printed out and kept in a special place, memory book or photo album so future generations can get to know a loved one.
