Today's obituaries are more than simple funeral announcements and a list of the names of family members. Modern obituaries include treasured memories, funny stories and important details that showcase the joys and moments of a life lived. A great obituary tells a unique story and reflects the personality of the person it commemorates.
Obituaries give visitation, funeral and memorial details.
Funeral services that include a viewing or wake are usually held within a few days of a death but a funeral or memorial service can sometimes take place much later. Some families choose to hold a visitation before the service, while others may prefer a ore low-key or private family service. A memorial service can take place at a funeral home, chapel or another location that was meaningful to the loved one. Preferences may vary, and an obituary lets friends and family know where to go and when. The online obituary also allows you to sign up for reminders about services to provide assurance that you don't miss an important memorial event.
Send flowers or gifts directly to the service or family's home.
Along with words of condolence, sending flowers or a small gift is a wonderful way to show you care. With the Resthaven Memorial online obituary, it's simple to order a bouquet or another token of care and have it delivered directly to the funeral service or the family's home.
Online obituaries let you leave words of support.
It's important not to underestimate the power of a simple message or cherished photo to bring support and comfort to those who are grieving. Send a note, share a story or upload a photo. Your condolence and kind words will remain with the obituary, providing comfort for the family for years to come.
