Writing a Eulogy and Obituary

Two important tasks in preparing for your loved one's funeral, memorial service, or celebration-of-life involve writing—and we know many people don't realize what's involved, or simply aren't comfortable with the writing process.

An obituary is an article that provides a information on a person's recent death along with details of their life and notable achievements. The obituary also tends to provide information about the upcoming funeral. Many newspapers charge for the publication of obituaries based on word length so sometimes multiple versions will be created to post to online book of memories pages and newspapers separately. 

In contrast, a eulogy is a speech or piece of writing that serves to give praise to a person or thing and typically, but not necessarily, given for one who has passed away or retired as a gesture of respect and affection. In the context of a funeral, the eulogy typically takes place during or after a wake. It is also important to distinguish eulogies from elegies, which are poems written for the dead.

That's why we've put together the pages listed below; to support those of you who are committed to fulfilling their responsibility of writing a loved one's obituary or eulogy. Naturally, if you have any additional questions on writing for the funeral, please call us at 828-680-9963. We will be pleased to assist you.
