Hello. My mother has sadly passed away. I am working on her obituary and need some guidance. There are 4 adult children in our family. My brother and his children have not had any contact with my mom/family for over 2 years. In writing the obituary, do I mention their specific names; or should I just say, 'Mom will be greatly missed by her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.' Before she passed away, I asked her what to do but she said nothing. I'm confused and would like to hear what you think.

Thanks for taking the time to help me out.
