Managing funerals for people missing at sea
No parent expects to bury their newborn child. Unfortunately, every year babies arrive still-born or die shortly after birth. Suddenly, parents have to face the prospect of planning a funeral instead of celebrating a birth. This can be incredibly difficult. Below is a guide which will help you to plan a funeral for your baby.
Choosing a funeral director
A funeral director will help you to make the necessary arrangements so your child can be cremated or buried.
If you are planning the funeral, you will no doubt be busy telling those who knew the deceased of their passing and working out the type of service you would like. However, one important thing you may have so far overlooked is the type of cemetery monument you would like to erect to mark the final resting place of your loved one. Below is a guide which will help you with the process of choosing a monument.
Funeral planning is not an easy task for anyone, and the person charged with planning a funeral may juggle the wishes of the deceased as well as the surviving family, while still considering budget, religious customs and traditions, and so much more. If you need to plan a funeral, note a few tips that might help you make some of those decisions, so the process is as easy as possible for you.
One of the most difficult situations you may find yourself in is when a family member dies and their final arrangements were not taken care of. You may find that your loved one had part of their funeral expenses paid, or that they had an insurance policy that covered only part of their arrangements. This can leave you with having to make quick judgements and choices you never thought you would be in.
Funeral and burial ceremonies are important to the living in various ways. They help the living to come to terms with the reality that their loved ones are there no more. They bring people together, something that reduces the emotional burden of the family members, relatives, and close friends of the deceased. A funeral also gives a meaning to the life of the deceased; without a funeral, people would never know what kind of a person the deceased was, what he or she achieved in life, or how the deceased made an impact on other people's life.
My uncle disappeared one day after rock fishing. It was really hard for my aunt because there was not a body to bury, but it was pretty clear that he had been swept out to sea. It turns out that this happens a lot, especially with sailors and people who spend a lot of time on boats. The funeral home organised a beautiful memorial service so that we could have a chance to say goodbye. It was a really beautiful ceremony and very true to his spirit and personality. This blog is all about ceremonies for people who are missing and has tips from experts as well as people who've gone through the experience of losing a loved one.
