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.

Being asked to give a eulogy at a burial service is an honour that allows you to pay your final respects of the person who has passed while painting a picture of the person's life for those in attendance. Although your grief can occasionally make it difficult to gather your thoughts to write the eulogy, this occasion isn't an ideal time to simply wing it. Instead, think of how you'd answer four key questions; these answers will serve as the foundation of your eulogy.

You may be thinking about cremation for when you pass on for many reasons. It's cost-effective, still gives your family something to remember you by with a decorative urn, and may sound less daunting than being buried in a coffin. A new alternative to cremation is growing among funeral homes, and may be something you want to consider for yourself: resomation. Discover what resomation is, what makes it different than classic cremation, and how having it done can actually make a positive impact on the environment.
