Please don’t hesitate to contact us with questions, confusions and personal concerns related to the care of a deceased loved one. Good information will help you to make choices that are in line with your values, needs, and economic limitations. If we don’t have the answer you’re seeking, we’ll do our best to help you find it.
We understand that it can be hard to explore your options at a difficult emotional time. But we also know that understanding these options can actually help you to move through the grieving process more fully by making the choices that are right for you. So we want you to know that there is a spectrum of choices. On one end is the “commercial funeral” that is provided by a local funeral home. On the other end of the spectrum is the “home funeral” where you care for your loved one on your own. For most of us, the ideal choice will be somewhere in the middle. But you first have to know that the spectrum exists.
A funeral can be a significant investment of money–and that can be burdensome for survivors. We have provided information on this site about low-cost funeral services that are available locally. This gives you the opportunity to compare prices from the comfort of your home. But don’t forget that you can make choices that will be much less costly if you decide not to purchase a full-service commercial funeral.
