No one really enjoys thinking about death, but a fact of life is that death comes upon all of us at some point or another. No matter how old you are, you can certainly plan ahead and think about your cremation service in Highland Park, NJ. If you are ready to make those plans, the professionals at Mount Sinai Memorial Chapels are here to help. Here are some things you will want to think about in advance to get the plans in order.
The Funeral Home
The first decision you will want to make is what funeral home you will want to work with to plan your service ahead of time. If you want a traditional Jewish funeral with all of the details taken care of from start to finish, Mount Sinai Memorial Chapels is a great option.
The Type of Service
Many Jewish traditions lean toward traditional burial options with a service occurring very quickly after death. However, today there are also cremation service options available. You will need to decide between the two to make your wishes known to others. If you want a cremation service, there are many reasons to go that direction. Perhaps you want your family members (which could be spread across the country) time to travel to get together to honor you. Or maybe you want your remains moved to another location, which is much easier to do with cremation.
Put it All in Writing
The most important thing you can do during the process is to write down everything that you want your loved ones to know about the service. You can be as detailed as you want. If you have specific songs you want used or a specific poem read, write all of those things down. The more you have in writing, the less your loved ones will have to question later. They will want to do what you’d like and if you tell them what that is, they are more likely to be able to do that.
Utilize Online Options
Mount Sinai Memorial Chapels has an online planning form that you can utilize to start the planning process. Many people who want to plan a cremation service may not really know where to start. Perhaps you have not planned a funeral service before or, at the very least, you have not planned your own before. The online form can help you get your thoughts organized before you meet with the funeral director to set everything up and put it all in writing.
You need your family to know what you want so you should give them a copy of the instructions or at least the contact information for Mount Sinai Memorial Chapels so they know where to call when you pass on.
