The Service Details

Now that you have thought about burial versus cremation for your loved one, it is time to think about what you would like the service to look like and represent.

The Location of the Service

Is there a special place that your loved one would like to have thier final goodbye? There are many options to holding a service for the deceased. It can be held in a funeral home, in the community, really the options are endless. This is where you can rely heavily on the funeral director to help create a memorable service.

Pallbearers

Pall Bearers are the people you have probably seen who carry the casket at the service, if there is a casket present. Have you thought about who will hold this responsibility?

Who Will Be Officiating the Service?

You can choose to have a minister officiate the service or a celebrant. The difference between the two are religious and non-religious. Some find it offensive to speak of religion if the deceased did not have religious beliefs. The choice is yours for who you would like to officiate the service.

Other Decisions to Be Made

There are a number of other decisions that will need to be made for the service. You will need to decide which flowers will be used, the type of music to be played, if there will be transportation to and from the service for friends and family, if there will be people speaking of stories or memories of the deceased, if there will be a eulogy, and any other special services that may reflect the life of your loved one.

Notifying Others of the Death

There is likely a list of people that were important to your loved one. Preparing a list of who should be notified of the passing of your loved one will be beneficial to you when making the arrangements. Funeral homes today have a number of ways of notifying people in the community and beyond of the death. Speak to the funeral home about these options.

There are a number of options to celebrate the life of your loved one, if you would like to discuss these, please contact us.
