FAQ

What Are My Obit Options?



You may want to write your own obituary ahead of time and save it to be published on the Obit Options website when it is needed.​ That way the obituary will be ready for newspaper publication and funeral home use when the time comes.​ Most importantly, your obituary will be written the way you want it.

Another option is to prepare a life story for you or a family member and publish it now.​ This would make a wonderful gift for a birthday, anniversary, Mother's or Father's day.​ We can write the story for you or it could be written in the words of your loved one.​ This is a way to leavea legacy for your family.​ Many times, after a parent or grandparent is gone, we wish we had asked more questions, learned more about the life they lived before we knew them.

We also offer a page for family members or friends to write a tribute to a loved one.​ We will also write or help you with a tribute to a beloved pet. 

You may need a eulogy written and we can write one for you.
