Funeral Issues

This section of our website will deal with an ever-evolving content of funeral and related issues. This area will soon be full text searchable and we hope will contain answers to any and all questions or concerns you might have.

We believe that a better understanding of what is involved in the funeral process and the options available, will allow you to make a much more informed decision saving both confusion and compounded grief at the time of a loss.

This appointment must be made in writing and should be signed by those accepting the responsibility of being an agent and the signature of the person making the appointment should be notarized. Attached is a sample form.
