Who To Call First It doesn't seem to matter how prepared we are - or aren't - a loved one's death often leaves us feeling numb and bewildered. If you're responsible for making the funeral arrangements or executing the will, here are the first calls you will need to make.
Meaningful Services A funeral is so much more than a way to say goodbye; it's an opportunity to celebrate the life of someone special. A funeral can be as unique as the individual who is being honored. From simple touches like displaying personal photographs to events created around a favorite pastime, funerals can reflect any aspect of a person's life and personality.
Funeral Etiquette Also known as social graces, the rules of etiquette ease us through challenging social situations. Most of us know how to behave in common circumstances but unless you've been to a lot of funerals, you may not know the rules of proper behavior in this often uncomfortable social situation.
Legal & Estate Guidance The death of a loved one can mean that you will need to find an attorney to help with the process of estate settlement. While it isn't necessary to have an attorney prepare an advance directive, it can be advantageous to have one prepare your will or any other estate-related documents.
Eulogies & Obituaries Eulogies and Obituaries may have traditional outlines, but their definition can be whatever you and your family wish for them to be. Explore this section of our website to learn more about how to write a Eulogy and an Obituary.
