There’s no right or wrong way to write an obituary. Circa Legacy recommends organizing an obituary into three parts – the introduction, middle, and ending.

First, write the introduction. Add a couple attention-grabbing lines to define your loved one. It also lists the deceased’s full name, age, and the date and place of death. Next, the middle section. It’s the longest part. It contains your loved one’s childhood, significant life events, and the people, places, and things he or she most loved. Finally, write the obituary ending. It defines your loved one’s legacy, surviving relatives, and details about the funeral and burial services.

Writing an obituary is a wonderful tribute to your loved one. Good luck! You can do it!
