Funeral Planning Need Not be a Grave Task
One of the certain facts of life is death. But still death of beloved ones is always painful and leaves a family unprepared. While the family wants to grieve the loss there are concepts that are to be considered about. Pre-funeral planning is no small matter. There are things like registering the death, choosing a chapel for the funeral, obtaining permit and choosing the plot for the burial or a visit to cremation homes to choose the right place. While these are required by law there are other things that a family would want for the departed. After all it is the last time that one can do something for the beloved family member and everything chosen would be special with a meaning to the survivors.An eulogy, flowers and special music, a casket for the beloved soul, a service that would be to his/ her liking, a obituary to let the world know of the loss, a reception with food for the mourners, the list is endless. But they are all that is left to give comfort to the grieving family members. And yet how can someone grieve and yet do all the planning involved? Funeral pre-planning is then something that close family members would not like to be bothered with when they are mourning a loss. A trip to a cremation home to arrange formalities is not what a widow who has just lost her husband wants to deal with. Or parents whose child was taken away from them. It is simpler then to go to a professional, a funeral home that has been providing service in your hometown. They would have fine idea about the ins and outs of taking care of all matters that pertain to death and can guide the bereaved in funeral planning. Of course there is an expense involved but considering the service provided it would be well worth it. All one has to do is to provide a list of preferences whether it is flowers or the chapel or music. They would arrange to receive the deceased whether from hospital or home, prepare and dress the deceased, arrange with the chapel and the pastor, send obituaries to the newspapers as requested, register the death, arrange for a casket, pall-bearers if needed, or an urn if the person chooses cremation rather than burial, cars for the funeral procession to the grave-yard, provide caterers for reception. In today’s electronic world they could provide live streaming of the funeral so family and friends who cannot attend can still participate. Such funeral homes will have professionals working who can help with counselling, or death duties, guide one with pension matters if eligible. They would also have a host of other services which mourners can avail like ordering flowers and wreaths with suitable messages, cards expressing sympathy, or sympathetic gifts. Death is not an experience that is relished by anyone but there are those experienced in the matter who can ease a bereaved family through it.
