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.

Have you given much thought to what your final wishes are? If something were to happen to you tomorrow, would your family know what you want? Few people want to think about what will actually happen once they pass on. Unfortunately, this can leave behind family members who are confused and conflicted about what you would or would not have wanted. While you will hopefully continue to have a long and healthy life for some time to come, it's still a good idea to make plans for the unexpected.
