Death in a home is a devastating occurrence that cripples many people emotionally. At these times, funeral directors play an important role of service in ensuring the family handles the funeral properly. Funeral directors console family members, arrange funerals, and prepare the deceased body properly for the family. Beyond these services, funeral directors offer further assistance to the families in certain procedural and regulatory matters that accompany death. In these times of bereavement, you will definitely need the guidance of a caring and professional funeral director to handle some of the following matters:
Funerals can bring forth such a range of emotions: melancholy, grief, regret, relief and nostalgia. As an assistant at a funeral parlour, I am privileged to help people with organising their loved one’s final journey. I have learnt that a good funeral parlour can make the occasion truly commemorative. When I attend funerals for friends, I am saddened to see that so many ceremonies are traditional and joyless. I later find out that the family members simply weren’t aware of options such as a graveside memorial service. I love the fact that one of my tasks involves showing family members various venues and demonstrating what can be done. In this humble little blog, I hope to make it my mission to share some of the ideas – big and small – from the best funerals I have seen. Perhaps it will give you some inspiration at a difficult time. Bless.
