Planning for the future is never easy, and it is undoubtedly harder when you are planning in advance for the parting of a loved one. However, at Passion Bereavement Care, we believe that planning is paramount because we know that death is an eventuality and we want our loved ones to have the best departure they can have as they return to our Father in Heaven. Advanced planning is also the best way to ensure that the funeral arrangements are in-line with the deceased’s wishes and expectations.
Why Plan In Advance?
Funerals can be a stressful and traumatic experience and the sudden death of a loved one can be difficult to cope with. During difficult times like these, it is understandably hard to make sound and logical decisions. Therefore, we advocate and encourage families to approach us to plan in advance in order to avoid and reduce anxiety and stress at a time when they are grieving. This additional time also allows families to think about what kind of funeral they would like to hold, for example whether to hold a funeral wake or not.
How Does Pre-Planning Help?
Many of our clients did not know what to do or what the procedures were like when their loved ones had passed on. By sitting down and planning in advance with us, we can give you professional, sound advice and consultation about the funeral arrangements for your loved ones. A funeral is the final opportunity we have to send-off our loved ones in a dignified and respectful way and we would be honored to have the opportunity to plan for it with you.
What Should I Expect During Pre-Planning?
As a funeral services provider, Passion Bereavement Care has witnessed first-hand many cases whereby families were completely unprepared for the passing of their loved ones and did not have a good photo to use for the funeral arrangements. In addition, some of the things to be discussed include the wake venue for the funeral wake, selection of caskets, the church(es) and pastor(s) to be invited to conduct the Memorial Service and Cremation Service and any other requests to the best of our ability. We pride ourselves on providing excellent customer service and satisfaction and strive to tailor our arrangements to fit your wants & needs.
