   Planning a Funeral...
             Most of us are not prepared to plan and carry out a funeral ceremony for someone we love. So much of the information available on this subject fails to focus on what is most important: providing a personalized service that allows family and friends to begin the healing process after the death of a loved one.
The dedicated staff at Hamlett-Dobson can play a critical role in planning and implementing a funeral or memorial service that reflects the life of your loved one. Our licensed funeral directors are intimately familiar with the funeral planning process, key decisions a grieving family must make, and necessary legal documentation that is required during this difficult time. Our funeral professionals can handle all of the details and help you create a unique service that fits your needs and values.
Meaningful funeral ceremonies make a significant difference in how families channel their grief toward health and healing. During the funeral, the community comes together and responds to the reality that someone has died, and also to the reality that those remaining will need support, compassion, love, hope, and understanding. The funeral encourages you to think about the person who has died and to explore the meaning of their life and the ways in which they touched the lives of others.
The remembering, reflecting and choices that take place in the planning and conducting of the funeral service are often an important part of the process of grief and mourning. And ultimately, this process of contemplation and discovery creates a memorable and moving funeral experience for all who attend.
The following list of information will be needed when funeral arrangements are made:
• Full Name of Deceased
