Too much information is not alway good.
I don't know how it is where you live, but the obituaries in the newspaper are getting fancy here. They go on an on about what the person has done. I know this may be interesting and comforting to a lot of people, but sometimes it gets a laugh.
For example. One recent obit mentioned, amony a zillion other things, that he had been a subsitute school bus driver when he was sixteen. Another mentioned that the person had passed away, "at home, in his recliner."
One thing that I do like is that they have started listing the names of the person's pets as survivors. Don't know how the doggie or kitty feels, but it shows how important the pet is in the family.
