image It is wonderful to finally find an article online that shows the importance of a good funeral director. It seems all we read anymore is how to go around the funeral director to get a cheaper funeral. I have said it before, NO ONE can replace a great funeral director. Maybe this article will help shed some light on those who think funeral directors are replaceable. Please read below.

For family and friends dealing with the recent demise of a loved one, the funeral director is an extremely important source of strength and support. They take charge of the whole process of making arrangements for the funeral service and look after every small detail allowing the family to deal with their loss without facing the troubles of the proceedings.

The funeral director should take responsibility for many tasks in the funeral service beginning with transporting the body from the morgue or the residence of the departed to the burial site. The funeral director will have to make preparations for paperwork of any kind like getting death certificates, applying for the critical permits, in addition to ensuring that procedures like organ donation are initiated in time.

A good funeral director also acts as a single contact point for all services essential for the funeral like managing vendors of flowers, music, food etc. He will be responsible for organising publication of obituaries in newspapers and intimating the funeral service venue and programme to expected attendees, who could be the relatives or acquaintances of the deceased.

The funeral director, in discussion with the family, decides the date and venue for the funeral, and makes preparations for the memorial service and the last rites. He makes arrangements for close relatives and friends to come together to express their sorrow and have a last glimpse of the deceased before the final rites. Only when the grave is sealed does the funeral director?s job really end on the funeral day.

A funeral director should be compassionate and committed to make sure of a smooth and well arranged for funeral service and help the grieving family sail through the hardest time of their lives. Therefore, you must always make use of the services of a well established and credible funeral director with an appropriate license. He must be known to perform his job sincerely rather than as an external party, which might charge you a lot and not provide the correct kind of services.

Recent conversations got us thinking, so we wanted to talk about some social media marketing mistakes we see death care companies make, and how they can fix them.

August 31 is International Overdose Awareness Day (IOAD)

Ryan Thogmartin - August 21, 2017

Unfortunately, the opioid epidemic isn’t much of a headline anymore. With over 100 overdose-related deaths everyday, we, as a country, have become desensitized to death and drugs. Funeral homes are charged with taking care of the final arrangements for those who have been taken from this earth too soon.
