We are so sorry for your loss. We know writing an obituary can be painful and preparing an obituary for someone you love is an exercise best approached with care and thought. Like the funeral service itself, an obituary acknowledges the loss of our loved one, expresses the pain of their loss and the joy that their presence among us brought. It also enlists the aid of our community, who will be there to support you in the coming days weeks and months. Most immediately, the obituary serves to identify and communicate to the community the passing of your loved one, and to announce visitation, service, burial and memorial information. If you would like to submit an Obituary notice to the Continental eNews, please use the below form and we will be in touch very shortly to finalize your free notification.
