Few people are comfortable talking about death. It's natural that the funeral industry has always been shrouded in mystery. Phillip Funeral Home strives to educate the public in hopes of helping them become more comfortable with an inevitable fact of life.
The arrangement process is a gathering of information, both statistical and personal about the deceased. You can expect the arrangement to last about two to three hours. We always aim to work at the convenience of the families we serve; therefore, the arrangement can take place at the families home, the funeral home or at an alternate location.
During the arrangement, the different types of services will be discussed. We believe that exploring all avenues of a funeral, from a traditional service to direct cremation is important. In addition, it gives us the opportunity to explore meaningful options that allow the families to express their individuality and add a personal tribute to the life of that special person.
Items to bring to the Funeral Arrangement:
Full Legal name of the deceased (including maiden name)
Social Security Number
Parents Full Names (including mother's maiden name)
Date and place of birth
Grade level of education
If in the military a copy of Discharge Papers (DD-2I4)<
It is important to remember that there is no right or wrong way to have a funeral. Our job is to help you figure out what you and your family need to do to have a meaningful celebration of life. You may have experienced something, which you found especially helpful or meaningful at a previous funeral. Let us know, so we can help create the service that is right for your special someone.
Please know we are always available to assist you and will continue in every way in which we are able. Therefore, please do not hesitate to call should any questions or concerns arise.
