When a Death is Imminent
Life is marked with celebrations. At the time of death, life should be celebrated, too.
Many people have celebrated with you throughout your life: at birthdays, during holidays, and on vacations. They would like to acknowledge your importance to them.
Let your family or loved ones know if you would like a burial, cremation, or no services at all. It is important that they know your wishes. Sometimes we think we are helping our family by not having services, but it could possibly contribute to longer periods of grief.
If an unexpected event such as an accident occurs, it becomes even more relevant for family and friends to hold a service.
The staff at Bradbury Memorial Center is here to help you sort out these decisions.
