When you are overcome with grief, planning breakfast can seem challenging, and planning a whole funeral can seem absolutely impossible. For this reason, a skilled and empathetic funeral home director is essential. In addition to that key person, you also may need to integrate coping strategies and tips into the funeral planning process. Ultimately, planning a funeral should feel cathartic rather than overwhelming. Hi, my name is Susan. After losing my husband eight years ago, I learned a lot about planning funerals, and I want to help others who need to plan one for their loved one. I offer you my sincere condolences, and I invite you to explore this blog. Thank you.
