There’s no such thing as a good time to hold a final service for a loved one. It’s going to be hard no matter when death occurs. And you might find yourself in charge of working with funeral homes in Orlando, FL to get the final services lined up. Just because you are the point person, though, doesn’t mean you have to do all of the work. You are grieving and you have people in your life who are ready and willing to help. Here are a few ways you can spread the funeral home plans out among other family members.
Let Someone Take Over The Memorial Table/Video
When you arrange a final service, whether it’s a funeral or memorial service, you will often have a memorial table and perhaps also a video of music and pictures that play before or even during the service. This is an integral part of the service that will make things very special and personalized. But it takes time to put together and you might not have the time you want to put into the project. Let another family member take it on. You can give them any pictures you want to be included or any instructions you have and let them take it from there.
Allow Another To Plan The Reception
The reception is an important part of the day, but it often gets put off for plans that are more important. Just because it might not be the pivotal part of the day doesn’t mean you want to ignore it. But you might not have time for it, either. Another family member will have time and they would likely be honored to take the project on for the rest of the family. Again, if you have any ideas or thoughts about the reception, let them know. Otherwise, let them take that part of the day, organize it, and run with their own plans.
Have Someone Help With Side Issues
Just because you are planning a final service for a loved one doesn’t mean the rest of your life has stopped moving forward. You might need help clearing your plate so you have more time to dedicate to the final plans. Have a family member drive your kids to and from school and practices. Ask someone to mow your grass, run your errands, or do other little things around your house and life that will free you up for what you need to concentrate on right now.
If you have to plan final services for a loved one with funeral homes in Orlando, FL, the professionals at Baldauff Family Funeral Home and Crematory are here to relieve you of as many of the burdens as possible. But you might also want help from your loved ones. Breaking up the responsibilities can really help you have the time you need to grieve and move forward while you are getting the plans you want for your loved one into place. It can also be a real honor for other family members to be included in that way.
