Your Funeral



Meeting With the Funeral Home

Within the first 24-36 hours of a death occurring, you will need to  talk and or meet with a funeral home to begin the final arrangements. This will be a difficult time for you and your loved ones. The funeral home staff will be there to guide you in making decisions and help make this difficult time a little bit easier.

Who Will Go With You?

One decision that will need to be made when a death has occurred is who will go with you to the funeral home. Do you have family or friends that are available within the first 24 hours to help you make the final arrangements?

Who Will Make the Decisions?

Deciding on your loved ones final goodbye will be challenging but not impossible. The funeral home will help you in providing the answers to questions you may have. They will help you understand what is involved in planning a funeral and be there to support you in any way that you need. Something you will need to think about is who will be making the decisions? Will it be you? Will it be someone with you at the funeral home?

Who Else is Involved in the Arrangements?

Does the deceased have children, friends, family that would like to be a part of arranging the funeral? Do you know how the deceased felt about funerals or what their final wishes were? You and your loved ones know the deceased best and your funeral home will work with you to help in celebrating a life lived.

Do you have the information gathered for the Arrangement Conference?

When a death occurs, there are legal matters that requires paperwork. To better prepare yourself for the arrangement conference at the funeral home, it may be helpful to gather documents needed. Below are a list of documents, and items that may be needed when a death has occurred:

  • Life Insurance Policies
  • Beneficiary Designations
  • Social Security Number
  • Picture of Deceased for paper, websites
  • Clothing, Glasses, etc.
