HIRE AN
OBITUARY WRITER

An obituary should not only share what an individual accomplished throughout their life, but who they truly were, what they meant to their loved ones, and what mark they left behind.

About

ABOUT OUR OBITUARY WRITING SERVICE

After our founder, Joshua, lost his grandfather, he and his family faced the burden all grieving loved ones face: having to write an obituary. Now, he relieves that burden for other families by providing poignant writing and attention to detail. He and the rest of our compassionate team can craft your obituary while you are alive, pen an obituary for your loved one who has passed away, or edit an already-written obituary to add clarity and eliminate errors.

Writing a Living Obituary 

Perhaps you have already written you or your loved one’s obituary. Or perhaps you plan on writing one on your own but are concerned about the outcome. Let one of our professional obituary editors organize, hone, and polish your writing, ensuring it flows and lacks spelling or grammatical errors.

If you have recently lost a loved one, we understand that you are being inundated with seemingly endless tasks amid your mourning. Let us alleviate one pressure by writing the obituary.

 

One of our empathetic writers will take their time to review the answers to the questionnaire you filled out. Then, they will reach out to you before writing the obituary. Once you and your family review the draft, we will implement your suggested changes and finalize the obituary.

Someday, in the fresh aftermath of your passing, your loved ones will be overwhelmed with responsibilities regarding final arrangements. Take one stressor off their shoulders by having your obituary written in advance. While doing so, you also ensure your life will be remembered in the way you wish.

 

One of our writers will review the answers to the questionnaire you fill out before calling you to discuss your goals. Once we write the obituary and you review the draft, we will implement your suggested changes before finalizing the obituary.
