People are reticent when it comes to death and bereavement, which is why there’s still so much uncertainty about how to approach the loss of a loved one now that most communication takes place online.
MyObits is a godsend to anybody who finds themself in the unlucky position of having to break the news about the loss of a loved one to their wider network of family, friends, colleagues, and acquaintances.
This easy-to-use app was created by Scott Found, a funeral home owner and operator of more than 30 years standing who felt that none of the existing obituary services offered an adequate service in terms of quality, useability, and price.
He found that the cost of traditional obituaries had increased by more than 1000 percent in just three decades, while online obituary services are often clogged with inappropriate ads or bundled in with unwanted features.
So he made MyObits. The app, which is completely ad-free, gives you a simple, intuitive interface with which to create an obituary of any length and share it with whoever you like over email, text, social media, and more.
You have complete control over what you include in your obituary notices, from a simple message to a full biography, complete with family records and photos.
MyObits also lets you provide service information, so that everybody knows where and when to pay their respects, while the floral service saves mourners the inconvenience of finding a suitable florist.
The app comes with an optional guestbook, too, allowing friends and loved ones to share memories and condolences.
MyObits is a modern, easy-to-use obituary service, and it comes at a fraction of the cost of newspaper notices, which are significantly less flexible and effective.
For just $35 you can have complete control over your obituary, giving you some peace of mind at a difficult time. You can find the official MyObits site here.
