Q : I noticed there seem to be fewer
obituaries in the daily newspapers, which
makes me wonder who determines
which obituaries are printed?

A: Unlike a paid death notice, an

obituary is considered a news item with
no cost to the family and is published
at the newspaper's discretion. Death
notices have increased in size. Less
space goes to free obituaries and greater
emphasis is given to paid death notices,
with photographs, religious symbols
such as Jewish stars, and even Web
addresses, all adding to the overall size
and cost of the notices.
