An obituary should be written by someone who loved and admired the deceased person.
Obituaries are often written by a family member, or group of family members. But anyone who can add loving memories and thoughtful summaries to the facts about the deceased person’s life can be an obituary writer.
Before turning this important job over to a stranger, consider writing the obituary yourself. You can do it! You want your loved one to have the best obituary ever – this is the final story the world will read about this person you loved. Don’t you want to be the one to write it?
