imageAs our economy continues to struggle, more and more people have an opinion to offer, including the dead. One thing we have made a point at Connecting Directors to stay clear of is political issues. But in this case I think it is necessary to show the following obituary.

As funeral services become more and more personalized I think we are also going to see a shift in the standard obituary to one that is more personalized and gives the reader a peek into the life of the deceased and gives you a glimpse at who they were and how they lived their life.

Take a look at the following obituary. It is pretty standard until you get to the “In Lieu of Flowers” part, which it highlight below.
