Helping You and Your Family Create a Meaningful Funeral
This is a naturally difficult time, compounded by the fact that you are faced with
many decisions that must be made as you begin to plan the funeral. You may feel
overwhelmed by these decisions. When you are able to make informed choices, you
are empowered with the important information needed to plan a meaningful funeral.
This is not the time to deny your need to mourn and embrace painful feelings of
grief in the coming days. You may feel deep sadness as you plan this funeral and
begin to acknowledge the reality that someone who you love has died. But when all
is said and done, you will feel deep satisfaction that you helped plan a
meaningful tribute or ceremony for someone who meant so much to your own life, and
you will be on the path to a healthy grieving process.
Making Informed Funeral Choices
After selecting a funeral home, you and your family will
choose the type of funeral service to hold, what will happen to the body and where
it will be laid to rest. How a body will be cared for after death is an important
decision. Whether you choose burial or cremation, you can use elements of ceremony
to honor the life of your loved one and to allow you and your family to say
goodbye in a meaningful way.
