What are some of the benefits of a preplanned Funeral Service?

Pre-planning your funeral takes a lot of the stress and hardship off the surviving family members by providing them with a set of instructions on what their wishes are for funeral services.  This is something very valuable for the survivors at a time when they are at their lowest point emotionally.  Pre-planning also takes the financial hardship off the survivors, and additionally by pre-planning your survivors won’t have to wonder what kind of casket, outer burial container or where you would want to be buried.

What is the proper thing to say when someone has lost a loved one?

Generally your presence is all that is important. You just being there for them is what they need.  And by all means avoid saying things like “I know how you feel”.  Because you can’t know how they feel.  Everyone mourns differently.   The family may be in a state of shock, so if they don’t want to talk don’t try and force a conversation. Just be patient at the appropriate time they will talk.  Just be there for them and be a good friend your presence speaks volumes.  

Can a traditional funeral service be held if cremation is desired?

Yes. We offer the same services for both burial and cremation disposition. These days it is not uncommon to have a visitation and funeral service for a loved one and instead of an earth burial, the deceased is taken to the crematory following services. There is a multitude of ways to set up arrangements. Your funeral director will be happy to help you select services that are appropriate for you and your family’s needs.
