Questions that need to be answered

…and we are here to help every step of the way

We’re always delighted to answer your questions, and should we have neglected to include your particular question about burial services in general, or the specific burial services we offer; please call us.

Death is one of the most painful realities that everyone has to face, and when someone dear to us passes away, a funeral helps us cope with the loss and heal from grief. 

A funeral allows family members and close friends to share their memories and give voice to their feelings about the death of a loved one—to accept that things will no longer be the same and still hope for a happy and fulfilling life, even without the person who has meant a lot to them. It offers closure and an opportunity to find support in others. Moreover, a funeral is a way to remember our loved one and celebrate their life. It’s a chance to reminisce and remind ourselves that theirs isn’t a life lost, but a life well lived.

Funeral Directors are people in charge of managing a funeral home and arranging the details of a funeral. Their responsibilities include consulting with the family of the deceased, preparing the body, arranging transportation for the deceased, and submitting all the necessary legal documents. They can also discuss and plan funerals with people who wish to make arrangements for their own service in advance.

Aside from informing friends and family, you need to get a legal pronouncement of death immediately after someone dies. You also have to find out about any existing funeral and burial plans. If your loved one has such plans, you can let their chosen provider take care of the details and proceed as planned. Otherwise, you’ll have to make the funeral arrangements and decide whether between a traditional burial or a cremation.

Within a few days of death, the deceased’s home, car, and other assets have to be secured. Valuables like jewelry have to be locked up too. If they had pets, check if someone in the family or a closed friend would want to care for them. You may also board them at a kennel in the meantime. Also, the deceased’s employer has to be notified at this point, and a forwarding order has to be placed to take care of any incoming mails.

You’ll need to secure certified copies of the death certificate two weeks after death. If there’s a will, it’s now time to meet with the executor, as well as with an estate attorney to help distribute assets. Moreover, cancel all services that are no longer needed, such as phone lines and entertainment subscriptions, close credit card accounts, terminate insurance policies and cancel the deceased’s driver’s license. It’s also best to delete their email accounts and close or memorialize their social media accounts.

Both options have their own pros and cons. Many people choose traditional burial because it stays true to most religious beliefs and is considered the more natural way. It also provides a gravesite which family and friends can visit later on, thus helping the bereaved find closure. However, traditional burial is expensive. Aside from the gravesite, headstone, and casket, expenses also include burial services and yearly maintenance fees of the cemetery plot. Burial also poses a problem for families who have plans to relocate.

Now, cremation is the more economical option. Since cremation removes the need for a casket, gravesite, headstone, and other fees, the cost of cremation services is generally lower by 50% or more. Cremation also allows some flexibility when it comes to memorial services. Instead of the usual funeral, cremation lets family members get creative and arrange for a ‘celebration of life’ to better reflect the personality of their loved one. Lastly, families who’d want to relocate will not have any issues should they want to bring the remains with them.

However, unlike with traditional burial, cremation means there’s no gravesite where friends and family can gather. There are also religions that frown upon cremation as it destroys the body. Exhumations aren’t possible as well with cremation.

In the end, it all comes down to which stays in line with your beliefs, which your budget can afford, and which you think will let you rest better in peace.

Grief and Loss Support

Helping Your Family

Cope in a Time of Grief

Grief is a natural response to loss. It’s the emotional suffering you feel when something or someone you love is taken away. Often, the pain of loss can feel overwhelming. These are normal reactions to loss—and the more significant the loss, the more intense your grief will be.

The Five Stages of Grief

  • Denial: “This can’t be happening to me.”
  • Anger: “Why is this happening? Who is to blame?”
  • Bargaining: “Make this not happen and in return I will ____.”
  • Depression: “I’m too sad to do anything.”
  • Acceptance: “I’m at peace with what happened.”

How can you tell if the firm you are calling is reputable? One way is to simply view the establishment, whether in person or online to see if they have a facility that appears reputable.

If they’re being evasive by not showing their premises online, you will probably wonder where your loved one would be taken to? Do they emphasize, we will come to you?
