Next steps in remembering them: Placing an obituary with My Tributes

Published: 9/5/2023

When you have suffered a significant loss of a loved one, it can be difficult to know what to do next. However, after arranging their affairs and conducting the funeral, it's important to find ways to remember their story and your memories together. One powerful way to do this is by placing an obituary with My Tributes.

Why place an obituary?

An obituary is a permanent, written record of your loved one's life and achievements. By placing an obituary, you're ensuring that their memory will live on forever, not just in the minds of their friends and family, but in the Australian story. A professional journalist can craft an obituary that beautifully captures the essence of your loved one, preserving their legacy for generations to come.

Digitised eulogy

My Tributes also offers a digitised eulogy service, which allows you to record and save the final goodbyes to your loved one. This service is perfect for those who were unable to attend the funeral and want to hear the eulogy, or for those who simply want to relive the memories shared during the service. It's a touching way to keep their memory alive and to always have a special way to remember them.

Tribute notice

Another way to celebrate and remember your loved one is through a tribute or in memoriam notice on special occasions. This small notice in the newspaper can be a heartfelt tribute to your loved one on their birthday, anniversary or other special day. It's a way to remember their life and the impact they had on your life in a beautiful way.

Next steps in remembering them

In addition to placing an obituary with My Tributes, there are other ways to ensure that your loved one is never forgotten. Donating to charities and research organisations is a beautiful way to honour their memory and support causes that were important to them. Making their memorial site special with items that were important or special to them can also bring comfort and happy memories. Hosting an annual memorial event can be a lovely way to honour their memory and celebrate their life.

Sharing your loved one's story with My Tributes is a powerful way to preserve your loved one's memory for generations to come. Along with other ways to honour their memory, you can ensure that their story and impact on your life will never be forgotten.
