Women in Funerals
Women in general are usually more sympathetic, compassionate and understanding in nature, which is why they are suited to the Funeral Service Vocation. Read More.. Women can have an understanding of grief and feelings at a time of sadness and can offer families a softer approach to the situation. Attention to the smaller details can be appreciated by grieving families and women can
have the ability to think of something unique to celebrate a loved one’s life. Caring and listening to a family who have lost their loved one, is a natural attribute for women funeral directors. I have been in the industry for 5 years and find it so rewarding, I feel as if I am doing a real community service.

Celebrants
When someone in a family passes away and it is time to arrange the funeral service,we all think, who is going to say the eulogy?
Most of us are going to be too distressed to get up to speak publicly, even if it issomething we can do under normal circumstances. Read More..This is why a Funeral Celebrant is used. They will visit the Family and talk about the life, journeys and family life of the person who passed away, and write the eulogy.Most families want to celebrate the life, rather than mourn the loss of their loved one.Eulogies are full of the good times, funny times and loving times of their life together.A photographic journey of memories is also a way to celebrate the life, and a way to include all family members by way of their photos with the person they have lost, included into the memories. Music is also a good way to remember their life, by choosing music relevant to their life and journeys. It does not have to be mournful, it can be very cheery and loving. A celebrant can assist a grieving family in making the funeral service a celebration of life.

What to say or Do when someone dies
It is customary to offer any member of a Bereaved family your condolences, and its okay to reflect on the good times your shared with the deceased. Sending flowers for the funeral or to the next of kin is also appropriate.

Organising a Funeral
There are so many things to think about when planning a Funeral Service. I had to do it last year and realised until you are faced with having to decide on so many things, you just really did not know. Read More.. I also know now how important it is to have a discussion with your Parents, even though they probably will not want to, about what their wishes are for their Funerals. I did not know if they wanted to be cremated or buried, although on thinking about it, I just assumed they would want to be cremated. You also need to think about where they would want the Funeral Service. My Parents are not religious, so I knew a church would not be the right choice, so I considered where else they are held. I chose the Cemetery Chapel which was best for our Family all to get to on the day. Music was a hard thing to decide on. What did our Parents listen to in their younger years? There are of course basic songs which are always played at Funerals, but I wanted something different. Luckily my Aunt knew exactly what would be suitable. The best thing was gathering all the old photographs and putting them together for a slide show. You learn a lot about your Parents past by collecting them from relatives. Even though I got through it all and we had a day full of memories with some laughs and a little crying, I do think as I get into my older years I will arrange my own Funeral with a Funeral Director so my children will not have to go through what I did.

Dealing with Death
If someone close to you develops dementia, you are constantly faced with the loss of the person as they used to be, the gradual loss of the person as your parent or partner and loss of the relationship. Read More.. My feeling of loss was about loss of the future and not being able to rely on my partner any longer for the things he always did for me, and now having to behave more like a parent than partner. The emotions going through this are extreme and are as distressing as grieving a death. I guess in a way it is a death, a death of the personality and abilities, and our relationship as I knew it. At the beginning I felt completely lost and at times thought this would probably only be a temporary condition and he would improve. I then finally realised I had to accept that the condition would not improve, but only get worse. This is when you are at the lowest. It is as I said, a grieving process and when you can accept this, even though it is never easy, in your own mind it helps you cope. Never be afraid to ask for help from your Family, or if you get too depressed or are not looking after yourself, get professional help as well. David D. Ballarat VIC. Less..Like (4) / Dislike (0)

Why you Should Pre Arrange a Funeral
The benefits of pre-arranging your or your parent’s funeral services the main thing is that if you plan through a Funeral Company, the amount you pay is locked in at the prices at present and you do not have to pay anything more when the funeral is needed. Read More.. Prices of everything, including funerals, go up every year, so it makes sense to get it all sorted as soon as you can. Also, you can plan what type of funeral is needed now, without all the grief and stress at the time someone passes away. Choose if you want cremation or burial, where the funeral will be held – either a church or cemetery chapel or funeral home chapel. Decide on if you want a minister or a celebrant to officiate the funeral, or even a family member. You can have photos ready with music choices to play at the funeral service. It is stress relaxed to talk about with your parents while they are well, and they can contribute to what they think will be suitable for their own funeral services. Jane T.
