When your loved one passes away, there are so many overwhelming things that take place. The emotions flood over you and it can be hard to think. That is why it is so important that you have the help you need to prepare a memorial service.
This guideline can be used to help you prepare for any type of funeral or service that will be held in honour of a loved one.
Contact a Minister Or Person To Lead The Service
Many people chose to use a faith minister to lead their service. In fact, many people who do not attend a church will reach out to priests and pastors. These professionals are trained to help walk you through the process.
If you plan to have the service at a church or church cemetery, you will need to get in touch with the church. They will guide you through what is necessary to use the facility.
Work With the Funeral Home or Cremation Service
The facility that will handle the preparation of your loved one needs to be contacted. Some people will chose to take this step before contacting a minister or church. However, I suggest that you get in contact with the minister as quickly as possible.
Many clergymen will go to the funeral home with you if you ask them to. It can bring a huge amount of comfort to have someone there on your behalf that is not as close to the situation.
Choose The Urn
Picking the right urn or casket can be a difficult decision. It isn’t necessarily about the different choices you have, rather, that you must decide where your loved one will rest. The decision can be very emotional for you.
Make sure you have a good friend or clergyman with you to make some of these decisions. You need someone that will ask the questions that are needed.
Once you have a these decisions out of the way, you can work toward putting together a memorial service or funeral service. That part of the process is also an emotional one that will require you to have someone who can help to keep you on track.
