Insert the Photos

Find the best photo of the deceased and insert it on the cover page. You may also insert a picture inside the template, on the back, wherever you wish.

Editing the Obituary Template

Edit the obituary template inside the funeral program. Here you may provide a short story about the life of the deceased. Consider inserting their accomplishments, hobbies, surviving family members, and anything else the deceased loved. Maybe the loved one's favorite quote, poem, or song lyrics may be inserted into the obituary template.
