Different Ways to Personalize an Obituary
It can be painful to write an obituary for a family member that has passed away and isn’t easy to come up with a personal statement that reads well in a single paragraph. Many people struggle with the process, while some completely disregard it. It's not a smart thing to postpone writing an obituary, as it's a good way to come to terms with this loss.
How To Write a Personal Obituary
George Darte Funeral Home offers a few simple suggestions for personalizing an obituary for your loved one:
- Consider The Personality Of The Deceased - Adding information such as the person's character, tastes, and appearance is the simplest and fastest way to personalize the obituary. If the deceased person was a funny person, for example, you might include that trait in the obituary.
- Pay Attention To The Little Details - Small and seemingly insignificant details reveal more of an individual than anything else. Rather than focusing only on their accomplishments, consider the little bits that make the person special to you. This would allow people to have a greater understanding of the deceased's life and personality.
- Explain That They Are Special To You - Talk about the effect the person had on your life. Make a note of the personal conversations that were beneficial to you. The obituary would become more personal when you include stories and memories.
- Use Satire - Many people believe that humor has little room in this writing. Using it can be a good idea if the deceased person had a wicked sense of humor. It would also help to lighten the tone of an otherwise solemn day.
