What to Expect When Reading an Obituary
When you read an obituary, know that the deceased person’s life is now over. Death doesn’t change the fact that they are gone from this world; it is a formal way of acknowledging their time here has ended.
Some important points about reading obituaries:
-You should always read the entire obituary, not just the first paragraph. This gives you a complete picture of the person and what they were like.
-Obituaries can be sad, but don’t be too upset if you cry during them. Everyone gets emotional when they read about someone else’s life being taken away.
-If you want to honor the deceased person by writing a eulogy or sending a tribute, do so after reading all of the obituaries.
