The Island Packet and The Beaufort Gazette extend condolences to those who experience the death of a loved one.
Death notices, which are published free of charge, are about 40 words long. For next-day publication, death notices should be sent by 3 p.m. Funeral homes should email them to firstname.lastname@example.org or bgobits@ beaufortgazette.com. Individuals sending death notices should use the same address and include the name of the funeral home.
Obituaries are paid items that are more detailed than death notices. Funeral homes should email obituaries to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org by 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. Individuals wishing to place obituaries should use the same address and include the name of the funeral home. Photos in JPEG format of the deceased are accepted.
