Planning a loved one’s funeral is one of the hardest things you will ever have to do. I recently took a course on “Death and Dying” in the social work division. One of the suggestions that our instructor gave us was to never try and plan a funeral alone. It is always best to have someone with you when you are going through such a tragic event.
Planning a funeral for a loved one can really take its toll on a person, especially if the funeral is for an immediate family member. Don’t be ashamed to ask for help. Our thoughts can be unclear when we are in that kind of situation. Allow someone to help you carry the burden. Funeral plans should not be made alone.
