“Most people will not take kindly to the term funeral and will often cringe or even shed tears at the very thought of it. It is a subject that few will want to talk about as witnessed when at such times, topics being discussed would be anything but those that are related to death and dying. No doubt everyone misses the dead person; but for all the tears being shed, the main thoughts would be about those who are still living.
Not Talked About
It is easy to conclude that funeral is a topic that is generally not talked about too much and most people fear death and will rather think about better and happier things. There are after all many superstitions associated with this term. Nevertheless, it is necessary to spare some moments and think about what a funeral would be like; even if it is something that you expect will happen sometimes in the distant future.
Everyone does their best to stay healthy and alive; however, destiny is not something that man can control and a life can be taken away at any time. It is therefore not a bad idea to plan for your funeral while you are still living – happily and joyfully.
One of the main considerations as far as planning for a funeral goes is to have a dress prepared in which to clothe the dead body. It should be something comfortable though not necessarily formal. Next, you would need to have a camera to take a last picture or two of the dead body and also of the funeral. Perhaps, you should also spare a thought for providing some music that can be played at the funeral.
To cover the costs of your funeral you may want to take out an insurance policy that will cover you for this event. Also, you may want to have a poem or two read out on that very somber day. Choosing an appropriate poem is sure to be a challenge – and an intriguing one at that. There are however, two factors that can help you arrive at the proper decision – how you felt about the deceased as well as what the deceased desired.
Another important aspect to the funeral is the funeral flower arrangements. It is after all never an easy task consoling a grieving person or family. There no doubts the fact that this is a very emotionally testing time and mostly, there are also many time constraints that need to be addressed when making your funeral plans. A funeral poem can help make things easier – provided the right words are spoken.”
