When you are planning services for a loved one with funeral homes in Baltimore, MD, there are going to be a lot of questions going back and forth. You will ask them about their services and options and they will have questions for you as well. Some of them are obvious and you will be prepared to answer them because you know it’s part of the process. Others are more in the background, but will help move things along as well.
How Are You Doing?
When you work with the right funeral home, you will get a great deal of compassion and empathy along the way. The funeral home representatives want to care for your loved one and give your family and the deceased a memorable final service. However, they also care for you with their compassion every step of the way. They genuinely want to know how you are doing and they are the type of people you can be honest with. You might say, “oh, fine,” to most people, but you can tell the truth within the funeral home confines.
What Was Your Loved One Like?
The funeral home wants to get to know your loved one through you. If they didn’t already know the person, you are the closest thing to getting to know them they have. They want to hear about your loved one so they can honor them in the right ways. When they know more about the person and their lifestyle, they can give you recommendations that will help them tailor make the final services in just the right ways to make them special for that person.
What Else Do You Need?
The funeral home will cover a lot of ground when you consult with them and meet with the funeral director about final services. Once you get things ironed out and it seems that things are in order and flowing in the right manner, the funeral director might ask you if you need anything else. At first, you might think no because the final services are taken care of. But you might, down the road, want to find grief resources for yourself or others in your family and the funeral home can help with that as well.
