Obituaries have become a major profit center for newspapers, wringing the last bit of cash from lifelong customers.
ObitCenter aims to change that. It’s fine if newspapers make money but consumers’ families shouldn’t have to pick up the tab for memorializing their loved ones.
This creative new site offers free obituaries and tips for arranging your final affairs to preserve your family’s assets and protect the environment. It also looks at the latest trends in funerals (hint: very informal) and examines solutions beyond traditional burial and cremation.
It’s a bit more irreverent but quite a bit more current than your average obit site.
