Things To Consider

Over the years people have generally thought that the funeral must be held within a definite period of time after death.  This is not the case; you can take your time and proceed at a pace at which you feel comfortable.

Some families desire to put the funeral behind them as quickly as possible.  To them it is seen as a painful experience and they simply want it over.  We encourage you to carefully consider and plan, making sure that the arrangements made meet you and your family’s needs.

In deciding on a day and time for the ceremony, allow ample time to:

  • have a viewing if desired
  • write the eulogy
  • prepare an order of service
  • gather old photographs
  • prepare a memory display if desired
  • let relatives and friends arrive from other places
