A funeral service marks the last sendoff for a loved one and though sorrowful, nothing should stop you from making it befitting and unforgettable. Funeral homes help mourners with the things they need to make sure they provide the funeral service they desire for the dead.
Once you've made up your mind on whether you want the deceased buried or cremated, a funeral home will help you do the rest:
When the day of the funeral arrives, you will need the coffin and some people transported to the venue of the funeral service. Funeral homes can offer a hearse for the coffin, which is often followed by an entourage of limousines carrying family members and close friends.
Chauffeured limousines can be provided to alleviate you of the stress associated with driving, parking, and arriving at the service in good time. In addition, you can let the funeral home know if there is a particular route that you would want the funeral procession to follow.
Flowers are a simple way of showing that the dead person will deeply be missed. There are several types of flower arrangements. Some mourners often prefer to select flowers that the dead person loved as a way to pay tribute and make the funeral service more personalised.
Many funeral homes often put together a brochure of the flower arrangements that most people tend to pick to help you decide what's best for you. It is important to bear in mind that having flowers at a funeral service can be a soothing gesture for all those who have lost a loved one.
Choice of music
Music helps to create a theme for the funeral service. Whether you're having the funeral service in a church, synagogue, mosque, or any other venue, a funeral home can make arrangements for music befitting of nature of the service.
It can arrange for the playing of live music, recorded compositions or hymns that complement the general mood of the atmosphere depending on whether you want to portray the funeral service as a celebration of a life well-lived, a commemoration of honour or a trip down memory lane recalling the best moments spent with the deceased.
Having a funeral home assist you with your funeral service arrangements does not take anything away from you; everything will be exactly how you want it to be. You will enjoy sensitive and professional assistance required to arrange a completely personalised funeral service that depicts the individuality of the life it celebrates and honours.
