What to Expect When You Meet With the Jarnigan’s Staff
When you first meet a member of staff to discuss arrangements, we will begin by providing you with a price list to give you a general idea of what our services cost. We then can discuss and break down the overall arrangement process, and ask about your loved one and get an understanding so we can honor them with our services.
Tell us about your loved one’s story, interests, accomplishments and memories, as our professionals can use this information to create a meaningful and personalized celebration of your loved one.
The process may include:
- Making a draft of an obituary
- Arranging transportation
- Selecting pallbearers
- Filing and preparing an official death certificate
- Scheduling services (location, time and date)
- Selecting a casket, urn, or any other necessary products
To better express your loved one’s essence, life story, and personality, feel free to include any memorabilia (photos, videos, sentimental items) that may give us a more well representation of how you would like to pay tribute to your loved one. If you are unsure about how certain parts of their life could be incorporated, please feel free to ask. We often make unique suggestions that could add a specialized touch to their service.
