Whether your loved one asks for
direct cremation in Detroit or an open casket funeral ceremony, an obituary will let friends, coworkers,
and acquaintances know about his or her passing. Obituaries typically
contain certain key pieces of information about the individual who has
passed away. Watch this video clip for a few tips for writing an obituary.
An obituary should be informative and tasteful. Be sure to list the name
of the individual who has passed away as well as his or her date of birth
and date of death. Include any important information about funeral or
memorial services so that friends and relatives can pay their respects.
You can also include information about the departed individual’s
personality or hobbies, who he or she is survived by, and where the person
worked. When writing an obituary, think about how the person would want
it to read and channel that wish.
