When I invested the funds for my pre-paid funeral, I was given a form 
to fill out with my obituary info plus a SASE to return it to the 
funeral home. I know that they also use the biographies from our 
recent county history to supplement facts in an obituary. So they 
don't depend entirely on family members' memories at a stressful time.
