Funeral directors are caregivers and administrators, event planners, as well as listeners and supporters. They make the arrangements for transportation of the deceased, complete all necessary paperwork and implement the choices made for final disposition and memorial service. It is important for your family to know your choice whether cremation, traditional, or green burial. Have the conversation with family now to find out what arrangements may already be in place or to help put them in place for the future. Planning ahead can be as simple as a conversation to record your wishes. Your funeral director is there to listen at any time.
