DELIVERING UNWELCOME NEWS

Published: January 13, 2019

No one is more aware of the shock and grief that comes with hearing of the death of a loved one than those who must deliver the news. The person on whom this responsibility falls may want to create a list and divide it with someone else of equal standing in the family. In any case, it may be a good idea to have someone else present when making the calls. Consideration should also be given to the fact that, as difficult as it is to disseminate such news, it may be more traumatic to receive it. With this in mind, it may be preferable to deliver the news in person when circumstances allow. The funeral director can offer guidance.

It is our mission to provide support and guidance in recognizing a life well-lived and to assist our community in celebrating the memories of their loved ones. In doing this, we will care for each family with respect and dignity, as if they were our own. A funeral service can mark the significance of the life that was lived. To learn more, please call JAMES H. DELANEY & SON FUNERAL HOME at 668-1960, or visit us at 48 Common Street. We have been serving our community with pride for more than 50 years.

NO DELAYING THE INEVITABLE

Published: January 6, 2019

It is no more sensible to delay making funeral pre-arrangements than it is to deny the inevitability of death. By addressing in advance the practical matters surrounding death, you can spare your family unnecessary hardship. For this reason alone, everyone should discuss such matters ahead of time. Having an honest conversation with immediate family about death and funeral preparations need not be difficult. In fact, many experience a feeling of relief after this important topic is discussed. Death is a part of life, and funeral arrangements are as important and necessary as planning for other life-altering events. Pre-arranging your funeral makes it possible to take the necessary steps to ensure that your loved ones are spared needless concern. 

Can you imagine planning a wedding in just a few days? Why leave the ultimate celebration of your life to the last minute? Pre-need funeral plans can be made at any time and offer many advantages. Funeral homes, cemeteries and other funeral service companies can help you preplan a funeral for yourself, your spouse, or a parent. If you would like to learn more about preplanning a funeral, please call JAMES H. DELANEY & SON FUNERAL HOME at 668-1960. Please tour our facility at 48 Common Street, where we have been serving our community with care for more than 50 years.
