IT’S YOUR FUNERAL
Traditionally, when people have uttered the phrase “it’s your funeral,” they have intended it as a warning that an irresponsible act could lead to dire consequences for the actor. On the other hand, a funeral director can use the phrase to suggest that you might as well take full responsibility for an event at which you are going to be the center of attention. As such, your funeral should reflect your personal convictions, tastes, and budget. Funeral preplanning enables you to make important decisions involving religious affiliation and customs, as well as the use of pictures, music, and readings to celebrate your life. It will also give consideration to the needs of your surviving family members, both emotionally and financially.
Preplanning final arrangements is important since it ensures that those left behind will not be burdened with making difficult decisions while grieving. It also allows the individual to predetermine all details of the service. To arrange a confidential preneed consultation, call JAMES H. DELANEY & SON FUNERAL HOME today at 668-1960.

QUOTE: “Let no one weep for me, or celebrate my funeral with mourning; for I still live, as I pass to and fro through the mouths of men.”
