How To Plan A Funeral
Planning for a funeral is something that will ever happen once in our life even though it is not still that easy. Of course we need to accord our loved ones with the respect they deserve. We should not be surprised when we find that some people do not honour their loved ones as it is expected. As far as funeral service remains to be a concern we need to plan well so we should not think that all is lost. It is until when we armed with some information that we will be in a position of knowing more about funeral planning.
There is need for family members to know the details of the funeral bearing in mind that guests are not invited. Having that in mind we should publish an obituary because it is not possible to speak to everyone. When people have the obituary they will be in a position of knowing where and what time the funeral will take place. Gone are days when communication was done through newspapers. As a result of migrating to the digital world, we find that people are now communicating using social media platforms. There should be no cause for alarm as long as we have a director to handle the obituary. Many are those who do not know that even funeral planning calls for a director.
How our loved one will be buried should be our concern any time we are planning for a funeral. But again we are going to find that some people will always express their wishes by writing a will hence our decision may be deterred. Some would wish for cremation while others being buried above the ground hence different options. There is need to include the option of burying the deceased during funeral planning. Whether we want a grave to pay a visit as a way of showing respect to the decease the decision lies with us.
We should not forget to specify the dress code during funeral planning. There are high chances to encounter some mourners wearing bright clothing as a way of celebrating the deceased. On the basis of the life of the deceased it is good that we have a common theme. There is need for someone who will take us through the occasion, but that should be included in the
. It is not a must for a religious minister to lead us even though many funerals will be like that. And again we should not consider a family member because he or she is likely to deliver a personal service. We should also have the order of events that will take place during that funeral day.
