Funeral directors, when a family trusts you with final arrangements for their loved ones, you know how to make the logistics come together just right. Every detail matters, from the timing of the service to how one is laid to rest. After all, you know the families you serve are navigating through sensitive and emotional times, and you are experts at making this hard time go smoothly.
When the obituaries — the lasting tributes to their family members — appear in the newspaper, online, in their social media feeds and in family scrapbooks, the families know they will be viewed by everyone who is important to them — parents, children, aunts, uncles, cousins, coworkers, classmates, friends and others who loved the deceased as they have.
They want them to be right. More than that, they want them to be perfect.
It's usually up to the funeral director to make sure those obituaries are compiled, written and published. And at the end of every obituary is acknowledgment of the funeral home entrusted with the services.
You want them to be right. More than that, you want them to be perfect.
It's worth having another set of eyes review each one. And when that extra set of eyes belongs to a communicator with a background in journalism and expertise in writing and editing, your chance of publishing a perfect obituary — with every semicolon and comma appropriately placed — is significantly greater than if you alone are the writer, editor and grammarian.
What is peace of mind worth to you and your business?
Our staff is ready to review your obituaries, correct mistakes and return them to you quickly. For a flat monthly fee, you are free to send us as many obituaries as you need and know that we will review them as a newspaper editor would have (back in the day when they still offered that service).
