When you visit the funeral home, the funeral director will guide you through the entire arrangement process, and assist you in creating a memorable celebration of your loved one's life. The arrangement process will include preparing and filing the death certificate and other government documents; scheduling the location, date and time of services or other events; selecting a casket, urn or other items; preparing an obituary; and coordinating services with other providers, including the cemetery. Necessary authorizations will need to be signed by the appropriate next of kin.
Feel free to bring any photos, music or memorabilia so that you and your director can discuss how you would like your loved one to be remembered. More and more people today choose to personalize the funeral services. A favorite song or gathering place, even a favorite activity can all become part of the service.
Our directors will listen and assist you in planning a loving tribute that captures the spirit of the person whose life you wish to honor.
The following list will help you remember what information and items you should consider bringing when first meeting with a funeral director.
