Having a loved one pass is very stressful. I know when my father got cancer and started to show signs that he wasn’t going to make it, all of the family got together and tried to make sense of the whole thing. I think the hardest part about it for me was the fact that we were expected to put on this big funeral right after everything happened. It was like we were all mourning and still we had to put together this funeral.
That is why I am so grateful that we were able to find a place that did funeral planning in Rockford IL. We hired this funeral home to do the funeral and they took care of a lot of the funeral planning in Rockford IL. They pretty much just told us what kinds of things we needed to do. For instance, we had to decide who was going to do what in the program and such, but as for all the logistics, they took care of it all. I don’t think there would have been anyway my family would have been able to handle that much pressure and I am so grateful that we found someone to help us out. The funeral turned out great and it wasn’t an added stress.
