Choosing the right funeral home for our loved one can be a tedious job. While you are in the process of mourning, you also would like to give the best funeral service for a family member who joined our Creator.
As much as you want to give the best we can for the last time to our deceased family member. However, you have to consider your budget. How much can you afford? You don’t have to empty your pockets or loan money to pay for everything. Remember that you still have to pay for the cemetery lot. So, it’s not only the casket, wake expenses, chapel, funeral vehicle, among other things that you will need to consider.
There are hundreds of designs and materials used in making a casket or urn. Depending on your budget you can choose a solid wood casket with an intricate design. Or, an urn made of clay or silver. You may also inquire at the funeral homes how you can avail for the ‘donated caskets’.
Most funeral homes these days have chapels where you can hold the wake. Many people would rather have the funeral homes’ the chapel as it is more convenient. However, it might cost a little bit more. When all of the chapels have been booked or when the cost is too much, you can hold the wake at home. You must know the assistance that the funeral home offers.
Other funeral homes have partnerships with some churches. Catholic churches have chapels that you may use for a fee.
How far is the funeral home from your place cemetery, or church if you wish to take your deceased loved one to the church for the final blessings. Especially in the Philippines, it is somewhat customary to walk from the church to the cemetery. So, you have to consider the location so you can plan the route and can coordinate with the local authorities for the traffic assistance.
