Passing of a loved one

For most of us, the loss of a loved one is the hardest experience we encounter. Grieve is not an emotion but an emotional process, and despite how different we are, the feelings in the grieving process is incredibly similar for all of us.

The first few days after the death of a close relative or friend are the most difficult, and we are incapable of believing what has actually happened. An unrealistic feeling is what most people talk about experiencing first, along with various other emotions. We have established our reputation by providing exceptional service at affordable cost and we focus our attention to detail and personal service.

In the middle of a mourning process, family members need to consider many things. When contacting a funeral director or a priest, the following information must be provided for the deceased: Full name, ID number, place of death, date of death, name of the relative, his domicile, ID number and telephone.
