How to Do I Pick A Funereal Parlor?

We are never ready, never prepared for the loss of a loved one. How many of us have ever, sit down with a close family member or friend, and discuss what kind of funereal you want to have when you die? I bet very few. For most people speaking of death or dying, is a scary place to be. It brings people to a place in their mind that they don't want to go. It brings death to the forefront of your brain.

The majority of people will refuse to discuss burials. Fear is the foremost reason for not planning ahead for ones death. Like if I do not speak about my eventual demise, then it will not happen or it will happen later instead of sooner.

I while I can understand not just standing around the office saying " I think I am going to pick the gun-metal grey coffin for myself and the pearl white casket for my spouse" you can sit down with your spouse and speak openly about burials. Leave instructions for your burial in at least two places where family members or friends would look for such things. A safe deposit box is a good idea also, in case of fire. Or you can be like an ostrich with your head stuck in a hole. You can leave behind a world of confusion for your family or friends.

You will need to decide if you want a traditional burial or a non-traditional burial. Do you want a casket and burial plot or do you want cremation and a memorial service with family and friends?

Do you want flowers or do would you like for donations to be made in your name? How about music? What are your favorite songs or music?

Do you want to have the opportunity for family and friends come and say their good-byes or do you just want to be quietly honored by family in a home setting with friends and family gathering together to say their good-byes and to lend comfort and support to each other?

Do you want a friend or religious support to speak at the burial or memorial service? If you go the traditional route, you will need to purchase a burial plot at a cemetery or a place in a memorial garden if you choose to be cremated.

Whichever way you decide to have your final send-off, it should be your decision, not left up to your grieving family members to handle in their time of grief.
