One of the hardest things you can do is go through the loss of a loved one you are close with. When you work with Baltimore, MD funeral homes, the representatives want to remind you of certain things about the services you are planning. Here are a few to keep in mind as you move through the process:
Your Loved One Was Unique
The first thing local funeral homes will want to do is get to know your loved one, if they didn’t know them when they were alive. They will talk to you about them, ask questions about them, and find out what they can about their personality. They want you to remember that the person who passed on was very unique and they deserve services that are special and tailor-made just for them.
All Services Are Customizable
While funeral homes have packages and lists that help you to choose certain services, those are for your convenience only. If you find that most of the items on one package work well, grab it, but change whatever you’d like. You can move things around, pick and choose what you want, and truly customize the service your loved one receives in any way you’d like.
Timelines Are Optional With Cremation
IT’s hard to rush through the planning process when someone has just passed away and you are grieving. If you want to slow the timeline down, you can choose direct cremation. That will allow you to take your time in planning whatever type of memorial service you’d like for your loved one. You can have several weeks, a month, or even longer, if you’d like. Many people choose cremation just for this reason. They have the time they need to process what’s happened and plan something truly special.
Any Final Disposition Is Honoring
If you don’t know what your loved one wanted, it can be very hard to make a final decision on their behalf. You’ll have to guess as to what they would have wanted, but keep in mind that no matter which disposition you choose, it will be completely honoring. Both traditional services and cremation are respectful and get your loved one the honor they deserve. Whatever way you go, they are in good hands.
