What We Do

An obituary should capture a person’s individuality, and their unique story. The words will be read over and over, by family and friends. Your words will help legacies and stories live forever.

But the most important thing you do when writing an obituary happens before you get one word written. When you listen to a family talk about the person they’ve lost, you allow them to reflect, remember, laugh, cry, and start healing.

The Healing Obituary writing seminar shows you and your staff how to ask the questions that lead to a meaningful re-telling of a life story.

You’ll learn:

~ why and how to include specific, meaningful details

~ how to shape those details into a concise obituary people love to read and share

~ how to use what you learn in the family obituary conference to make the life celebration even more personal and unforgettable

~ how to incorporate the obituary into pre-planning

The online training is 3 hours. On-site training is also available, and can be customized to fit your staff’s schedule and needs. Kitty, a veteran teacher, makes sure you leave with the skills to improve your obituaries immediately.

Kitty also offers custom obituary writing, and copywriting for your website and marketing materials.
