Obituaries are not the only way to announce the passing of a loved one. There are a couple of alternatives.
If you do not wish to write an obituary for your loved one, you could write and publish a death notice. A death notice is a very shortened version of an obituary. It announces someone has died. It provides details about the funeral or memorial services. And that’s it.
You also could write a eulogy. A eulogy is a story and tribute to someone who has died. It can be read aloud at the funeral or memorial service.
