Hi everyone, my name is AnaMae Merton. I recently lost my birth parents during a heavy storm. Their deaths left me reeling, though we were not very close. Furthermore, I was the only surviving kin, so it was my job to arrange the funerals for both of them. The funeral arrangement process was incredibly difficult without knowing much about their personalities or passions. I struggled to find the best songs, outfits, caskets, burial sites and flowers. Luckily, the funeral director helped me identify suitable options for my birth parents' funerals. I hope to help people understand all of the different funeral arrangement options available today. Please visit my site anytime to learn more.

Far too often, people pass away. Many pass away from unexpected events, such as a car crash (1.3 million, of which half are aged 18-44), a sudden and unexpected illness (47% of heart attack deaths occur suddenly and outside of a hospital), or intentional deaths, such as a suicide or homicide. Taking into account that anyone could pass away at any time, it makes it all the more important to plan for your own end.

Instead of a formal eulogy, some funeral services turn the microphone over to those in attendance to allow them to share some remarks about the life of the person who has passed away. This "open mic" style of funeral can be valuable for the family members of the departed, as they'll get to hear some insightful comments from a variety of people, rather than a eulogy from just one person's perspective.
