The impact pf a child's death can affect many people including the extended family, school friends and their families and teachers. There are many ways you can help yourself cope during this time. Ask for help and support from family, friends or a support group, and try to express whatever you are feeling, be it anger, guilt or sadness. Accept that death is beyond your control. For more information about bereavement groups, call us.

With advance planning, there are several important factors to consider. You will want to think about any religious practices that are expected by your faith. You should consider your family members and their desire to participate in the service by not over planning ahead of time. Instead, make general suggestions that can be adjusted to make the funeral more meaningful to the participants. For more information contact us.

Transporting the Body from Far Away

When death occurs unexpectedly far from home, the local funeral director can coordinate efforts to transport the body back home with a funeral establishment in the area where the death occurred. This way, the family of the deceased can make all arrangements locally. In some cases, the body may be embalmed prior to being transported. Otherwise, it will be necessary to ship the body in an airtight container. In the event that death should occur outside the country, the funeral director can enlist the aid of the U.S. Consulate in the country where the death occurred. English translations of the death certificate as well as other necessary documents are made available to the family.

In most cases, death notices are fairly factual in nature and don't include a lot of editorial language or reflection. Obituaries tend to be more editorial in nature and are traditionally written by newspaper editorial staff members, although you my certainly write an obituary and present it for publication to the editorial staff. If you need assistance with funeral services, please contact us.
