Next » « Previous


If you want to plan a funeral and/or a memorial service, think about::

  • Where you want the ceremony to take place.
  • What you want the ceremony to be like.
  • Whether the body should be present. If the body is present, should the casket be open? A closed casket can save money on the preparation of the body. If the body isn't  present, consider a wall with photos instead.
  • Who should give the eulogy.
  • Who should speak. Who should not speak.
  • Whether there should be music. If so, what specific music or what kind of music.
  • Whether you want flowers, and, if so, what kind.
  • Whether you want people to make a donation to a worthy organization instead of people sending flowers.
  • Which among the following group of people you do and do not want to be invited to attend: Family, friends, business and professional associates, religiously affiliated associates, fellow sports and/or hobby enthusiasts, school mates and club and/or association associates and public officials.
