CREMAINING THOUGHTS

Published: June 16, 2019

If you or a loved one decides to be cremated, choosing what to do with the cremains comes next. For those wanting to have their cremains committed to a special place that can be visited, ashes can be buried in a “sacred place” (like a cemetery) or they can be kept in a columbarium (essentially, a mausoleum for cremation urns). Others may elect to store cremains in a beautiful urn that remains in a loved one’s home or is rotated between family members. Some individuals entertain the notion of having their cremains dispersed at sea, in a special place on land, or simply cast to the wind. In such cases, it is very important not to disperse cremains without permission.

There are many advantages to taking some time to remember the life lived, share stories and laugh about all of the memories. Our team can help you plan a fitting memorial service with or without the cremation urn present, at our facility or in a place of your choosing. To find out more about the services we offer, please call JAMES H. DELANEY & SON FUNERAL HOME at 668-1960. We invite you to tour our home at 48 Common Street, where we have been serving our community with compassion for more than 50 years.

SURVIVAL TACTIC

Published: June 10, 2019

Numerous studies show that spousal bereavement is often a major source of life change that leaves surviving spouses vulnerable to later health problems. Even those who go through the grieving process in a matter of weeks or months must face the immediate reality of vastly changed circumstances. One of the best ways to ensure the health and well-being of a spouse is to remove the responsibility of having to plan the funeral and burial. Coping with the loss of a spouse of many years is difficult enough, and the responsibility of funeral planning is an unnecessary burden that can be lifted with a little forethought. Preplanning your funeral is an act of love.

Funeral pre-planning is about so much more than simply recording your end-of-life wishes. It ensures your loved ones know how you want to be honored and cared for. Rather than stressing over the arrangement process, your family members can focus their energy on comforting one another and preparing to say goodbye. To learn more about our funeral services, please call JAMES H. DELANEY & SON FUNERAL HOME at 668-1960. We invite you to tour our home at 48 Common Street, where we have been faithfully serving our community for more than 50 years.

LEAVING A LASTING IMPRESSION

Published: June 2, 2019

The words “She did it the hard way” are inscribed on Bette Davis’ tombstone. She wished to be remembered by this phrase, which reflects the Hollywood actress’ hard fight for success. One need not be famous to leave famous last words behind, as exemplified by Lester Moore, who was buried at Boot Hill Cemetery in Tombstone, Arizona. His grave carries the immortal words “Here lies Lester Moore, four slugs from a .44, no Les no more.” Whether an epitaph is sober, reflective, humorous, or inspirational, it leaves all who view it with a lasting impression. For those wishing to write their own history, an epitaph carved in stone provides the last word.  

At JAMES H. DELANEY & SON FUNERAL HOME, we strongly believe that a funeral service should be tailored to represent the life of the deceased. This is why our services range from traditional funeral services to uniquely personal ones. Together we will work alongside you to plan a meaningful funeral service that pays tribute to your loved one. To learn more, please call 668-1960, or visit us at 48 Common Street. We have been serving our community with pride for more than 50 years.
