In this world everything s uncertain today. Death is also an event which is so uncertain these days. Life moves on with some precious memories of loved ones each day and we pray for their success and goodwill. Sometimes though, there are some situations which halt this journey either for us or our loved ones. This event is called death. It just makes our thinking go haywire and the only things we are left with are the memories which keep hitting the mind with high speeds. Many times we also think that we wanted to express a lot more but we were unable to do so due to our busy lives.

Now, the only way we can express our feelings is through Newspapers, Social Media, Mobile, etc. as
we have become more social. One of the media which is Newspaper is the most read and the place
where we see obituary ads feature everyday.
