Consumer Tips for Arranging a Funeral
At some time in our lives, most of us will make or assist in making funeral arrangements. This will not be an easy time, but we at Latimer funeral Home would like to offer these tips for smart planning.
1. Be an informed consumer. Don't be reluctant to ask questions.
2. Today's funeral director offers a variety of options to meet your financial needs and wishes. Families should discuss all options with their funeral director when making arrangements.
3. When selecting a funeral director, choose one who is licensed and has a good reputation in the community. Give thought to this decision as you would when choosing a doctor, attorney or other professional.
4. Be prepared! Avoid the burden of making decision while under emotional stress by organizing details with your funeral director ahead of time. Remember ... preplanning doesn't necessarily mean prepaying.
5. Plan a personal and meaningful ceremony or service to help you begin the healing process. Getting through grief is never easy but having a meaningful funeral will help.

Thinking About Cremation?
Cremation is becoming increasingly popular, especially amongst the baby boomer generation. Among the many reasons for this growing trend is the breadth of options cremation provides for a final memorial service.
Cremation gives people the flexibility to search for types of tributes that reflect the life being honored. But this doesn’t mean that aspects of traditional funeral services have to be discarded. Even with cremation, a meaningful memorial that is personalized to reflect the life of the deceased could include:
· A visitation prior to the service
· An open or closed casket
· Special music
· A ceremony at the funeral chapel, your place of worship or other special location
· Participation by friends and family.
Commonly, cremated remains are placed in an urn and committed to an indoor or outdoor mausoleum or columbarium; interred in a family burial plot; or included in a special urn garden. Cremation also gives families the option to scatter or keep the remains. Today, cremated remains can even become part of an ocean reef or made into diamonds.
Whatever you choose, cremation or burial, traditional services or contemporary celebrations, we at Latimer Funeral Home are here to help you.
