How to Write an Obituary

Writing an obituary or eulogy can be a daunting task. Some people feel overwhelmed by the responsibility of writing about the deceased. They worry that they’ll forget important facts and information, or that the obituary won’t fully capture their loved one’s life. A person asked to give a eulogy at a funeral or memorial service may share these worries along with the added anxiety that speaking in public can produce.

Finding the right words to pay tribute to a colleague, friend or loved one isn't easy, but LegacyConnect has experts who can help. Click on the links below to get expert advice on obituaries, eulogies and more.
