Kunstformen der Natur (1904) by Ernst Haeckel

An obituary attempts to give an account of the texture and significance of the life of someone who has recently died. It is derived from the Latin word It is to be distinguished from a death notice (also known as a funeral notice), which is a paid advertisement written by family members and placed in the newspaper either by the family or the funeral home.
