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.

Life-Altering Experiences

It may not seem like it at the time, but the death of a loved one can deepen your faith. A recent survey shows that nearly half of American adults have undergone one or more life-altering events that led to a redical changes in their religious or spiritual values. Almost on half of these life transformations occur during early adulthood or during difficult periods in life, such as death of a parent. About four out of ten of the survey's respondents said that the life-altering event caused them to become more deeply religious or spiritual. In nearly all cases, the transforming experiences led people to become better people and appreciate life more.
