Letter to the Editor, Opinion

Appreciative of Chronicle’s obituary policy, sensitivity

Dear Editor,
I would like to say, “Thank You” for the service, which The Chronicle provides, of allowing the publication of obituaries FREE.
Being able to honor and remember the deceased in this way is an important and personal narrative of family history that is being recorded, especially when family members are allowed to include details and personal stories about their loved one.
Thank you for recognizing the importance of this vital information that for some does not get printed due to the fact that most newspapers charge a fee, often per word, which can get expensive if . . .
