If you are in the midst of planning a funeral, you may be feeling overwhelmed right now. Many details must be attended to. Many people must be contacted. Many decisions must be made. Your natural and necessary feelings of grief make these tasks even more difficult.
Still, it’s important to slow down, take a deep breath, and focus on what is really important, what is essential about the funeral you are planning. What is essential is the life that was lived and the impact that life had on family and friends. To honour that unique life, the funeral must also be unique. Over and over families tell me that the best funerals are those that are personalized.
