CARDS OF THANKS
This is an insertion in the paper where you thank people that helped you during your time of need. Typically people thank their Doctors, Nurses and friends.
This details the personal data, background, funeral details as well as the survivors of the deceased.
This generally states the deceased's name and the date of passing. It is not uncommon for survivors to include a short poem that fits the occasion.
The death notice gives detail about where the person passed on, who is survived by them and the location and date of the funeral.
