Just a question. How long do people usually run obituaries for? I can't believe how expensive they are. I took a few to create my mother, the funeral director came back today with a price. I know it was long, but so were the others. My mother was well known around her town with two very successful businesses. But at $270 per day, I can't run it for consecutive days.
Any suggestions? Which day would be the best, Friday, the weekend? Her services are on Monday evening and Tuesday afternoon. Is this a waste to spend this money? She didn't mention anything to me about an obituary. I do know she wanted an open bar at the reception after the funeral...and she told my dad not to be cheap.
Thanks for your advice and input.
