Caring for another when they can no longer care for themselves is an important responsibility.  Planning the funeral for a loved one is one of the most caring gifts one can do for another.  The funeral director is there to help guide you through the many decisions that need to be made to honor the memory and life of your loved one.

The arrangements for the funeral can take place at the funeral home or in the comfort of your own home. The next-of-kin and other family members must be present to make the decisions regarding the services to take place over the following days. The meeting can be divided into to parts. First, vital information is gathered by the director in order to complete the death certificate, necessary authorizations, and permits.  This information consists of the deceased's legal name, birth date, birthplace, social security number, occupation, parent's names and other pertinent information.  The second part of the arrangement process consists of determining the types of services desired by the family.  The important decisions such as selecting the place and time of the church mass or service, visiting hours, committal service and all of the details accompanying these choices.  

The funeral director will explain the process and timeline of the services selected and review all necessary disclosures and legal requirements involved.  The funeral director will honor your requests and follow your choices and instructions to their exact detail.  

Many individuals and families find it is easier to make these arrangements in advance. The best time to sit and discuss funeral options is before they are needed when more open family discussion can occur.
