Our caring funeral director will contact you after your loved one is in our care. We check to see if he or she has any notes about their final wished on file with us. The funeral director will set an appointment to meet at one of our facilities to discuss funeral arrangements. You may be asked if we have permission to embalm. Embalming is not required by law. However, embalming may be necessary if you select certain funeral arrangements, such as a funeral with an open casket/public viewing. Please ask any questions you may have.
During this call, you’ll also be informed about the things that you need to bring with you like 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).
Feel free to call us whenever you feel the need to. Remember that we are here to listen to you, help you, and guide you during this difficult and trying time.
