Writing an obituary for a mother or father? This is a deeply emotional process. It can feel overwhelming. A grieving child has a lot to think about, in addition to all the details for an obituary.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed, Circa Legacy can help. Organize the obituary into three parts – the introduction, the middle, and the ending.
Each part of the obituary is comprised of a few key details. The introduction has attention-grabbing lines that define who the person was. It also lists the deceased’s full name, age, and date and place of death. The middle section is the longest. It contains information about their childhood, significant life events, and the people, places, and things they loved. The obituary ending defines the person’s legacy, survivors, and details about the funeral and burial services.
