Talking to Children about Death
Nearly every death impacts a child—whether it’s the death of a parent, grandparent, distant relative or favorite pet. So when a death affects a child close to you, we believe it is important to talk to the child in honest, age-appropriate terms and provide them a safe place for their questions and concerns.
Veterans Benefits and Military Funeral Honors
Families often choose to honor a Veteran with military funeral honors. This tribute, consisting of the playing of Taps, flag folding, and presentation of the flag, is led by a two-person detail representing the Veteran’s branch of service. If your loved one served in the military, you may be eligible for burial and memorial benefits through the VA.
How to Write a Eulogy
When a loved one passes away, a speech or eulogy is given at the memorial service. This is a chance to celebrate the deceased’s life and memory. The best eulogies are not written by writers or given by the best performers. Instead, the best eulogies are honest, short and provide a brief, yet accurate, glimpse into a loved one’s character.
