My parents passed in 2010, three months apart. My dad's obit was $1,100 and my mom's $900. And this was in a small coastal New England city of about 30K. We also placed the obits online. It was free and there was a comment option. You had the choice of keeping the comments up for free for 90 days, or longer for a price.I actually didn't know they cost money; I didn't write one for my father's death and don't plan to do so for my mom's. And when I die, I don't expect anything to be written in the local paper. Maybe a final blog post, though...
