“Michael composed a beautiful obituary for our son, capturing his persona with charm and a dash of humor at a time when we were numb with grief. It still gives us comfort when we read it, as we have done many times.” – Ernie and Mary Scheld
Creative obituaries for the living, recently passed, and passed long ago
How many times have you read a boring obituary that leaves you disappointed in its failure to truly describe who the person was?
Hi, my name is Mike Dauplaise, and I’ve been a professional writer for more than 40 years. It is my honor to help families through difficult times by writing memorable, creative obituaries that do their loved ones justice. Sharing people’s stories in a way that highlights their spirit is what I do best.
Everyone has a story to tell that goes beyond the basic biographical and career information you see in most obituaries. Your loved one had a personality, a life spirit that touched the hearts of those around them. This is your chance to celebrate their life as they deserve.

Multimedia options for custom obituaries
In addition to a written obituary, you can request that we include a variety of multimedia assets to share on social media or play during the celebration of life event.
We can produce a professional narration audio file of the obituary as well as a premium multimedia video package that features your photos and video clips. You don’t have to decide which package you want right away; you can always upgrade later.
Creative obituaries that last forever
Think about this: Wouldn’t you like to know more about your ancestors? What they accomplished? What made them special? Even what they and their families looked like? Genealogists and family history researchers constantly hit roadblocks in the form of a lack of information from previous generations.
Today’s digital technology lets us create a legacy that will be available for generations to come. After all, obituaries can live forever now on newspaper websites, funeral home websites, social media and general internet searches.
