Funeral Announcements

Funeral Announcements

Funeral announcements are to honor the deceased along with spreading the word of the funeral to friends, family, and the community. Buzzle has a few sample announcements that might help make the task less overwhelming.
Sheetal Mandora
"Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy."
Eskimo Proverb
When we think about it, the most painful experiences a human being can go through in his/her life is the loss of someone close to them. Informing relatives and friends about the demise is a difficult task. As announcing the sad news can be tough when done in person or over the phone, many people find it easier to send out the announcement cards or obituaries.
Samples to Choose From
If you feel that writing the announcements might be emotionally draining for you, take a look at some sample announcements mentioned below to help you deal with the stress and pain of losing a loved one.
