  • Prepare a list of people who should be contacted in case of a medical emergency or death
  • Write an obituary or write down information needed for an obituary
  • Decide where the obituary should appear
  • Choose the type of disposition you would like (burial or cremation)
  • Choose Your Details:
    o    Cemetery lot location
    o    Casket type/Cremation urn type
    o    Vault/Sectional crypt
    o    Type of service: religious, military, other
    o    Your pallbearers
    o    Your music selection
    o    Your flowers
    o    Readings at service and who will read them
    o    The charity, church, or organization you would like donations to be made to
    o    Your funeral and visitation location

Now that you've figured out the details, it's time to make sure they're carried out. Take the time to assign responsibility for each task on your list.

All the information you provide will be held in strict confidence, because your privacy is as important to us as it is to you.
