Tips when planning a funeral

    When you die:
    • A physician or the police will be called, and the body will either be picked up directly by the funeral home or taken to the morgue first to determine the cause of death, if it was unexpected.
    • Your body may be taken to the local hospital first in an attempt to revive you
    • In a hospital, the on-duty or family physician will pronounce the person dead and fill out the death certificate.
    • Your body must then be removed quickly (usually within several hours) before decomposition begins.
    • Your relatives contact a funeral home and your body is taken to the hospital morgue.
    You or your relatives need to determine what kind of funeral to have (burial or cremation). If you want your body donated to medical science Cost of funerals range from a few hundred dollars for the most simplest funerals up to thousands of dollars for the most lavish. Your survivors will have to notify people of your death and of funeral plans. They should immediately telephone family and close friends, and you may opt to send printed announcements to out-of-town friends.

    Contact your local newspaper notices and submit a death notice and/or obituary. The death notice is a paid item that includes the time, place and circumstances of death and the time and place of calling hours and services. Usually the death notice will also include instructions for sending flowers or sending monetary contributions in honor of the dead to a specific charity or other organization. The obituary is a news item, ran at the discretion of the newspaper, and includes further information about the deceased's background and immediate survivors.

    Traditional funerals in the United States usually mean a burial, often preceded by calling hours, a service and/or a graveside ceremony. These events usually take two or three days. Cremation is another option and is considered a variation of the traditional funeral. Cremation tends to be much less expensive than a funeral and increasing numbers of people in the United States are opting for cremation rather than a burial.

    One last thing to keep in mind is some sort of social gathering after the funeral events are over. This can be important in bringing together loved ones of the deceased, or people who haven't seen each other in many years. After the stress and heartache of planning a funeral, this can be a way for survivors to commemorate the life of the deceased. While the last thing you might what to do after planning a funeral and laying a loved one to rest, these informal gatherings can serve as an outlet for your grief as you are surrounded by family and friends.

    No matter where the person died or whether you opt for a traditional funeral or cremation, planning a funeral anywhere can be one of the most challenging experiences of your life. Keep in mind this simple list of what will usually happen following the death of a loved one, and you can get through the difficult time of planning a funeral. Keep family and friends close to you for love and support.
