Creating a pre-need plan isn’t admitting defeat and it definitely doesn’t mean you have to slow down. It’s simply preparing for the future and making plans yourself so that loved ones won’t have to.

Right now many people are experiencing what is known as "Pandemic Grief." This type of grief occurs with the loss of community, connection and support. It is important to acknowledge all types of grief, and allow yourself to feel those specific emotions. Remember to reach out and talk to your loved ones for support. Even a simple phone call or video chat can help lift your spirits, and theirs!
Having contradictory emotions? Know that it is actually quite normal to feel very different emotions, especially during a crisis, sometimes even all at once.

There comes a time to turn inward. Reflect on what it is we’re leaving to those we love. It is a true act of GREAT responsibility. Are you living in a way that is building the legacy you wish to leave?
...A beautiful and personal way to honor their memory. The painting could be of whatever you desire, and completely unique. What are some ideas you have for memorializing a loved one?
Taking the time to remember a loved one who has passed with family and close friends is a great way to share fond memories. It can also help you to express complex feelings with people who truly understand.
We believe cremation can and should be an experience. Saying goodbye to a loved one is necessary regardless of what you choose for the body’s final resting place. The grieving process starts at a funeral, celebration of life, or gathering of some sort. In planning for your own funeral, or at the time of need for a loved one, consider creating an experience for friends, families, colleagues, and neighbors to say goodbye and begin the grieving process. If you would like us to contact you to answer any questions regarding a celebration of life, let us know if you prefer communication by phone or email: http://205087.celebrate-life.us/reach-out/
By planning ahead for your end of life wishes - making a living will, arranging your funeral or cremation plans - provides peace of mind. Do you have any plans set in place? Why did you take the step to plan?
Wondering what to wear to a digital funeral? Wear whatever feels right to you! If you feel like dressing up to honor your loved one, do so. If you prefer to be comfortable, that's great too. Maybe wear their favorite color, or for the sports fan, their favorite team's jersey. Whatever you choose, don't forget to engage in the service and show the family support to help you view the funeral as a funeral - helping you prepare to grieve.
Is Cremation the right choice for you? Consider these when making a decision:
1) Cremation opens up more options, not less. When you choose cremation, you can still choose service and celebration of life options. You get to decide how cremated remains are dispersed: scattering, urn placement, burial and more.
2) Cremation is a permanent decision. It’s best to think through this decision, and be sure it discuss it with your loved ones.
3) Some religions and denominations have different views on cremation as a final disposition. If a religious funeral is a priority for you, make sure you know your religion’s stance on cremation.
4) Cremation is still a relatively new choice and therefore concerns arise regarding respect of the body and respect for cremated remains. It’s important to note that only the highest standards exist for cremation, just like burial.

Facing fear is hard. Yet if you stay strong you’ll often find you are capable of facing more than you ever imagined you could.
“Grief is not a disorder, a disease or a sign of weakness. It is an emotional, physical and spiritual necessity, the price you pay for love. The only cure for grief is to grieve.” - Earl Grollman
What emotions do you feel from your grief? Don’t let anyone lead you to think that there is a timeline or any organization to grief. Sometimes grief feels like fear, other times like anxiety, many times sadness, and even it feels like bittersweet moments in the present.
