KEY CONSIDERATIONS FOR FUNERAL PLANNING

Here are some key points to consider when planning the funeral of your loved one.

1. CHOOSING BURIAL OR CREMATION

In some cases, the deceased person had already shared their preference for burial or cremation while they were alive. If not, you or your family members must step up and weigh the options.For burial, you will also need to choose a cemetery and purchase a burial plot. For cremation, you can choose to bury the ashes, scatter them, or store in an urn.

2. FUNERAL PROGRAM AND ORDER OF MEMORIAL SERVICE

In most cases, families and friends would like to remember their loved ones by organizing a funeral program. This is also their way of paying tribute. Roman Catholics and Christians sometimes require a church to hold the final mass.To ease your burden, Hosanna Eternal Services can tailor a program specific to your needs, and ensure that it goes smoothly. Just leave the coordination to our team, so you can save precious time for other things that matter.
