Easing the burden of funeral planning is one of our most important services here at Stillinger Family Funeral Home in Greenfield, Indiana. We know that the loss of a beloved spouse or partner, family member, or friend is traumatic, whether the passing resulted from a long and difficult illness, or resulted from an untimely cause, such as a tragic accident. In any event, to honor your loved one, details must be decided and arranged, and we stand ready to make this difficult time easier for you.
Preplanning a Funeral
Probably the best way for easing the burden of funeral planning is to pre-plan the services to be provided at the time of death. Most components typically involved in funeral planning can be prearranged, including service or ceremony details, and choosing a casket, burial plot, headstone, and more.
Planning a Funeral at the Time of Need
As much as we recommend funeral preplanning, the fact is that most families require funeral planning at the time of need – when a loved one passes. And because each individual lived a unique life, we recognize that there is no single funeral planning solution that meets the needs of every individual or family. In fact, the type of service chosen is normally based on the personal preferences of survivors – and the deceased, of course, when their wishes were made known prior to death.
Regardless of any known preferences or decisions made before the passing, we understand that decision-making when planning a funeral can seem overwhelming, especially at the time of need. That’s why our compassionate funeral planning professionals will help guide you through the process, from selecting the type of service to choosing a casket, vault, and other important items.
Support and Resources After the Conclusion of Services
Even though funeral and memorial services are designed to provide a fitting tribute at the end of a life and be a helpful and healing part of the mourning process, we recognize that grieving does not end there. For most people, grief becomes easier to bear over time as life carries on. For some people, however, grieving can become a seemingly insurmountable obstacle to moving forward. At Stillinger Family Funeral Home, part of our role in easing the burden of funeral planning is helping families and individuals get the support they need after services have been concluded. We are always here to recommend appropriate resources to help mourners grieve appropriately and find ways to return to a productive life.
