Organizing a funeral, a memorial service, or Celebration of Life, usually comes at a time when you are least prepared and time is a premium.
Grieving families are forced to make frantic, last-minute-decisions; deciding on the type of service, the music, the flowers, poetry, and program.
All of this happens at a time when it is the last thing family members feel capable of.
This website is a result of my own frustration, over the years, in planning the funerals of my loved ones.
Rather than having to spend hours searching for various ideas, poems, quotes, and music, you will find a volume of ideas in one place to help you in planning the service.
You will also discover some ways to substantially decrease your costs.
Not all decisions should be made at the funeral home or mortuary. They make their profits based on offering a service that you know very little about and are forced to make emotionally charged decisions. They don't expect people to shop around or find alternatives. Therefore, they can - and do - charge a significant mark-up on their costs of products and services.
No other industry is able to get away with such huge mark-ups..simply because of our reluctance to deal with death.
Recently my eldest brother passed away after a battle with cancer. As 'the aunt', I became the overseer in all the funeral decisions and was able to save his family over $3000 in costs - just from using the information I share with you on this site.
