Making Funeral Arrangements
This is a topic that we all at one time or another will have to face. Outside of the fact that most people put off the inevitable until we really need to make these decisions, funeral directors understand the emotional stress that most family members are under when confronted with undesired circumstances. We all can relate to what the unknown feels like especially when we are not at the top of our game to "deal" with it. Consider walking into a new car dealership and talking to a salesman. The issue is, "What are we getting for the amount of money we have to spend?"
Most funeral homes believe that having a price structure that will fit most pocketbooks is the answer. After receiving the funeral home General Price List, ask the funeral director what options are available that will best fit your budget.
It is always a good idea to have someone with you when you come into the funeral home to make funeral arrangements. Not just for the moral support, but also for adding thought to the process of making some of the decisions. Another important issue is the items you might want to bring with you to the arrangement conference. These include the cemetery deed, insurance policies, clothing, photographs and the decedent's social security number.
