What are the Aim and Purposes of Newspaper Obituaries?

It is virtually impossible to individually inform the vast circle your loved one might have had, when they depart. Just like a funeral service, an obituary acknowledges the loss of your loved one and expresses the pain of your loss. Newspaper death notices convey the personality or contributions of the deceased in a meaningful way.

The purposes of death announcement are acknowledging the passing of one of us, celebrating the gifts that the person brought to us, sharing parts of a life that all may not be aware of and expressing the grief of our loss. Obituaries can be of two types –
