HOW TO WRITE AN OBITUARY

HOW TO WRITE PARENT’S OBITUARY: An obituary is been a well-thought issue in the 20th century. The only way to appreciate, keep the legacy, show one’s love, share the memories of a loved one especially our parents is through obituary writing.

I have heard some people is an obituary written usually a long or short piece of writing? Generally, one’s size of writing doesn’t matter but the content that really radiates the in-depth of the written article just like writing examinations. It neither long nor short, it’s more of expressing one’s feelings and putting your audiences or readers in a state of picturing the whole incidence/memories.

HOW TO WRITE PARENT’S OBITUARY

  1. In obituary writing, you start with the name/names of deceased but in the case of a mother you have to include her maiden name. the parentage, date of birth and how they met and got married and how many children they begot. Make emphasis on the essence of their living and make that wherever and whenever the obituary is being read that it brings back the memories once shared.
  2. Include what they Love the Most: This part of the obituary is quite important in order to play in the minds of family and friends what they loved about your parents. What song or genre of music, foods, movies, places that your parents love the most. Their favorite books or loved ones and so on.
  3. best quote/saying of the deceased parents: As your parent, you should know that there’s always a favorite quote/saying that usually tell you, family, friends, and colleagues-inclusion of your parent’s last messages to you, or family/friends are also reasonable. Not just a saying but favorite jokes, a sentence that can easily remind you of them is also accepted.
  4. Their Expression of Love: there are different ways people show well they love one another. You could share the amazing love story your parents had when they were alive in the obituary. Did your mom tell you how much she cares and loves you every day or did she just express with gifts and the small things that matter? Those are the things you can include here because at the end of the day, the way parents express their love to themselves and their children says a lot about them.
  5. Share their Achievement So Far: We all will fade away like the stars of the morning one day and at the end, the only thing we do remember for the good works we have done, the lives we have touched, the people we have helped and the achievement we have made throughout our lifetime. So, you need to recount the past and present achievement, recognition and awards given to your parents.
