When Death Occurs

No matter if a death is sudden, or if it something that was a long time coming, the loss of a loved one makes us feel emotional and overwhelmed.  No amount of preparation can fully prepare you for the loss of a loved one.  When you are in a heightened emotional state, even                                                                      the most basic decisions can seem staggering.

Arrangements

This is where we create the experience and set the tone for all that will follow. The funeral director will set the structure of the tentative agenda for what we call our "Meeting of the Minds". Though this process we will summarize the funeral directors role in the planning process,                                                                                   emphasize the importance of planning a personalized, meaningful                                                                                 funeral and to review goals for the arrangement conference.
