Even if you are in the middle of mourning the loss of a loved one, you must also be alert and careful whenever you deal with the funeral services. Especially if your budget is very limited, it only makes it very important that you do not hire the first funeral director that you encounter. Because just like when you are shopping with regular items, choosing funeral planning services should never be done hastily.
In the meantime, I called the Coast Guard regarding where to get Dad’s veteran’s flag. We weren’t sure where to begin so I progressed from the local LORAN station to the MSO in Wilmington, and finally to Decedent Services in Virginia. I got a puzzled call back from an officer there, saying that he’d never heard of a family having to get their own burial flag. The funeral home ALWAYS takes care of this.
Claire Fisher, the youngest Fisher by several years, provides the show with youth, optimism, pretentiousness, an above it all attitude. With an honesty the other Fisher’s are not capable of, Claire is the voice of truth on the show.
Dr. C. probably prefers a large flashy granite memorial monument with an eternal flame, but I doubt local authorities would grant permits for a 12 foot flaming cat statue in our yard. At least he will live on in cyber-space and the books and articles he’s written over the years.
Another advantage is that it is (arguably) much more safe for everyone. What do I mean? Well, bodies decay and sometimes they don’t get buried properly and this can cause problems. Even during the wake itself, a body may start to release noxious gas that can cause illness to those attending. A cremation done right away will prevent that from happening. Also, if the deceased has succumbed to a disease or some other contagious sickness, the risk of the virus getting passed on to the living is null. Basically, people think that having a body cremated is better for everyone involved rather than having a burial.
Veterinarians understand how painful the loss of a pet has become for the owners and thus provide their clients with Pet burial services Pittsburgh. The cost of cremation can be fairly expensive. It depends on how much your pet weighs and also where you live. This service is provided by your vet. Your vet will contact the cremation company who will collect your pet from the vet’s office, cremate it and place it in the urn you chose. They bring it back at the vet’s office and you can collect it.
Mr. Hardee also called us back a couple of hours later, just to make sure we’d found someone who was able to help us. Remember, his company does not do cremations – he had absolutely no financial motivation, and no way to get our business at that point – but in spite of that, he cared for my family. He even told me to give my Mom a hug! We are so impressed by Hardee Mortuary that we will recommend them to anyone needing burial services!
Ask and you shall receive. Funeral directors can help tailor fit their services to any reasonable budget that you might have. After all you are still a customer and if you are satisfied, you might help spread the word about their good and caring service.
