What Needs to Be Done When Someone Dies? | Funeral Pre-Planner, Kat Downey
I had three calls this week from colleagues asking me to guide them through the process of what has to happen when a loved one dies. Unfortunately in each case there was no preplanning nor had the families had any conversations about what type of funeral the deceased wanted. Imagine their total bewilderment and shock at having to make important once in a life time decisions – all while they are in a state of total emotional overwhelm. I think we could all agree that this is not the optimal state of mind to be in and have to make funeral decisions. Especially when there are so many steps involved that they haven't thought about. To give you an idea of this comprehensive list, I have prepared a list of just a few of the many steps involved in what needs to be done when someone dies.
