Within the First Few Days
You’ll want to notify close friends and relatives, both through personal phone calls as well as your loved one’s death notice. If this process is too painful for you, it’s absolutely okay to ask a trusted family member or friend to help you.
This also is the time to review any of your loved one’s preplanned funeral wishes and meet with a funeral director to begin planning their service. If your loved one did not preplan their funeral, you might want to start thinking about a few of the big choices you will need to make, such as:
- Burial or cremation
- If burial, the type of casket
- If burial, the location of their final resting place in a grave or mausoleum
- If cremation, the type of urn
- If cremation, the location of their final resting place through burial or scattering
- Any religious services you will need, such as clergy or spiritual leaders
- The types of services you want, such as a viewing, service, graveside memorial, etc.
These questions are just a starting point, and you don't need to know the answers right away. Don’t hesitate to contact us to gain a better understanding of your options. We're here to make this process easier for you.
