We would like to think that we would find everyone gathered in the comfort of the family home, reliving fond memories and talking about special moments – all while grieving in a healthy and healing manner.
Unfortunately, without proper planning it can be a time of chaos, stress and confusion. Family members are often scattered with some at the funeral home making arrangements, others making calls, while others are at the cemetery securing burial rights.
We find family members searching through desk drawers, closets, basement and attics – looking for long forgotten about or misplaced paperwork such as birth certificates, insurance papers, veteran discharge papers, contact information for friends and much more. Even in the closest of families, we often see arguments and heated debates brought on by tough, last-minute decisions or by unforeseen financial expenditures.
It doesn’t have to be this way and we can help.
