How to write a respectful obituary for a baby or toddler that passed away?

Losing your child is the worst thing that can happen. When you are forced to write an obituary for a baby or toddler that is dear to you that has recently passed away, this is both a great honor as well as a great responsibility towards the family. The appointed person, how hard it might be, also might go through a difficult time, depending how close he or she was with the deceased person. The obituary you create must show the respect that he or she deserved, and it will be read and heard by many, many people. Often obituaries are published in the newspapers and on the internet far into the future. It will be read by family members, loved ones, friends, acquaintances, and many others who are simply interested in reading about neighbors who have passed away. For most writers, the obituary will be the most important piece people will keep and will remember the person by. It might be the hardest thing they will ever will do.

Guidelines for parents that grief:

  • As soon as possible after the death, set time aside to talk to your child.
  • Give your child the facts in a simple manner - be careful not to go into too much detail. Your child will ask more questions as they come up in his/her mind.
  • lf you can't answer their questions, it's OK to say, "I don't know how to answer that, but perhaps we can find someone to help us."
  • Use the correct language - say the word "dead" etc. Do not use phrases such as: "He's sleeping", or "God took her", or "He went away", etc.
  • Ask your child questions to better understand what they may be thinking or feeling. "What are you feeling?" "What have you heard from your friends?" "What do you think happened?" Etc.
  • Explain your feelings to your child, especially if you are crying. Give them permission to cry to. We are their role models and it's appropriate for children to see our sadness and to share our feelings with them.
  • Use the given name of the deceased when speaking of him or her.
  • Understand the age and level of comprehension of your child. Speak to that level.
  • Talk about feelings, such as: sad , angry, feeling responsible, scared , tearful, depressed , worried, etc.
  • Rea d a book on childhood grief so YO \J ·have a better understanding of what you r child may be experiencing.
  • Read a book on death to you r chi ld. Take time to discuss what you have read and tie it into what is happening to you .
