Leeward Funeral Home in Pearl City, HI, understands how important it is to feel like you have everything under control, and their funeral checklist is designed to make planning easier. Their thought-out plans lead to a more enjoyable service and less stressful funeral planning.

Here’s how a funeral checklist will benefit you and your family:

  • funeral checklistContact List: The hours and days immediately following a death are the hardest. Overcome by grief, it’s difficult for loved ones to think about who needs to be told and how to contact them. Fortunately, a funeral checklist features a list of names and phone numbers of the people who should be immediately informed about a death or medical emergency.
  • Type of Service: Funeral choices include religious, nondenominational, military, and fraternal. It’s an important decision and often the cause of stress and tension within families. Everyone wants to make the right choice, and a funeral checklist will feature each detail to ensure everyone’s wishes are made clear.
  • Obituary & Memorial Information: Many families choose to honor their loved one with an obituary. A funeral checklist provides a rundown of what you should consider to make your family’s job easier. If you’d like an obituary, jot down notes about what it should include. If you’d like a charity to benefit from memorial donations in your name, provide your loved ones with that information.
