When the various elements of a funeral come together in a meaningful way, it provides an experience which is transformative for those impacted by the loss, and as they say at Dil’s Funerals, “It’s amazing how much difference one call can make. First, we’ll answer any questions you have. Then we’ll arrange to bring the deceased to our funeral home. We’ll also set a time and place to meet with you and those involved in making the funeral arrangements.”
Dil’s are also there to help the family choose a burial plot. Most cemeteries have a variety of areas and memorial options, with varying prices, it’s worth looking at all the options before making a decision on a particular plot.
Similarly, creating a lasting memorial to a loved one is important to many people: it can serve as a tribute to their life and provide a focus for the thoughts and memories of family and friends. As ‘normal’ life resumes following your loss, it can be comforting to have a special place to visit that is dedicated to the person you have lost.
There are many memorial options, and the type of memorial available to you will depend on several factors:
Whether it is for burial or cremation
The cemetery in which the memorial is to be installed
The type of material desired, granite or bronze
The desirability of being able to add to the memorial at a later stage
Memorials can be whatever you want them to be. New technology allows you to create a unique design that best reflects your loved one’s life, and this can be with graphics, pictures or even colour photographs. Renovation work and additional inscriptions can also be arranged.
With every funeral Dil’s will provide an estimate of expenses outlining what they expect the funeral to cost, based on the decisions you have made. It is important to them that every family they serve has a positive experience and that there is clarity and transparency around what they are doing and how much it will cost you.
