Losing your father can be one of the most difficult and devastating times of your life. Especially if you have sisters and brothers whom you have to comfort and console while at the same time you have to find a way to deal with the pain as well. It’s not easy dealing with the idea that you won’t ever see him again. This can make things even more painful and difficult for you, if you are the one left with organizing the funeral. This is probably the last thing you want to be doing right now, but it’s important that you find the strength to pull yourself together so that your father can have a decent service and proper burial, allowing others who loved him to say their last goodbye. pemakaman muslim
The first thing you want to do when trying to put together a burial service for your father, is to locate a funeral home that will be convenient to your location. You should make sure that the funeral home is large enough for your father to enter. Make sure that the environment is comfortable, and after talking to the director, decide if the services offered fulfill your needs and fits your budget.
Most people often have a preference as to whether or not they want to be cremated or burial. It’s important that you decide this before the service because you will have to choose between a closed/open casket and urn to be used at the service. You’ll want to contact the church that your father was a member of to arrange the funeral which consists of a date and time. If your father was not a member of a church, then this is something you will need to decide for yourself.
Another thing is schedule a day for viewing of the body which is called a wake. Most people schedule this the day before the funeral, but it’s your choice if you want to do it sooner. You should also take the time to order flowers to be used in the service and at the graveside, and it won’t hurt to order memorial items such as obituaries and such.
Once you have done all this it is time to start contacting friends, family, co workers, and any other people who may have known your father, or knew people who knew him. This will give them a chance to decide if they want to come and show support for the grieving family and say their last goodbye. There may also be people who were closer to your father who wouldn’t mind speaking at the funeral. You don’t have to allow it but sometimes it helps when others share their wonderful memories of the people we love.
Once this is all over, things may not go back to normal, but you will finally have a chance to grieve in your own way. This will be a rough time for you, but giving your father the best funeral possible is the best last gift you can give to someone you love.
