On your first meeting with us, we will discuss the arrangements for your loved one’s services. You will be shown a list of our services and merchandise, so you can decide what suits your family’s preferences and budget. You will be asked whether you’d prefer burial or cremation arrangements, make merchandise selections (casket, urn, vault, etc.) and schedule a time and date for the services, decide on the location of the service and burial, and draft an obituary.
We would also use this opportunity to learn about your loved one, so we may better assist you in celebrating his or her life. It will be extremely helpful if you can bring some memorabilia (photos, treasured items) that would give us a clearer picture on how you envision paying tribute to your loved one.
You may want to bring a photo for the obituary, clothing including undergarments (long-sleeves and a higher neckline are preferred; shoes are not necessary), Social Security card, his or her father's full name and mother's full maiden name, military discharge document for veteran's benefits (DD214), and/or life insurance information (if you prefer to use this as payment for our services).
