A funeral has many dimensions. The funeral service is our way to not only honor the dead, but comfort the bereaved. It symbolizes our beliefs, our culture, our hopes and ideals and our spiritual concepts. It can involve religious, social, fraternal, civic and military organizations. It is affected by many different laws and regulations.
Some families have already given some thought to the choice of a funeral establishment, so when there is a death, they know whom to call.
No one wants to think about their death any sooner than they must, but planning your funeral and cemetery services in advance is a responsible, caring act that can reduce stress for your grieving loved ones. Funeral pre-planning with Farmer Funeral Home or Smith Funeral Home allows you to make unhurried and informed decisions.
When pre-planning funeral arrangements, it’s good practice to offer general suggestions that can be adapted or adjusted later to make the funeral more meaningful to the participants.
