I created Fond Remembrance to provide a way for you to determine for yourself, in a private and respectful way, that which you feel is most appropriate to commemorate the life of a loved one. Please accept this opportunity to become informed of the many options you have before contractually obligating yourself to any funeral provider.
Most importantly, we are committed upon your request to plan and implement an appropriate Fond Remembrance of your design and offer a wide range of options and products to assist you, within a sensible budget. We provide answers and options few others may offer, and remain elastic to respect all faiths, customs, traditions, and lifestyles.
Fond Remembrance is your solution to the inevitable task of creating end-of-life tributes and engaging in celebration of those that you hold most dearly.
Perhaps you have had the experience of meeting with a funeral director when the death of a loved one has occurred. If so you may remember the many decisions that had to be made and information that needed to be presented in order for the director to complete the necessary forms and legal documents. When I meet with people whom have never experienced the process, they often feel unprepared and sometimes overwhelmed by the ordeal. This is where pre-planning helps.
Pre-planning is simply the exchange of data that is recorded so that it can be available when needed, including choices you make regarding the type of tribute you feel best resembles the way you want to be remembered. For some, it can be as basic as cremation and scattering of the cremated remains privately in nature. For others, it may involve the construction of a meaningful tribute that conveys sentiment of a message that you want to share. People who pre-arrange tell us it is important to them because they what to spare the burden of those left behind from wondering if they are doing the appropriate thing. Peace of mind and love for their family motivate their completion of the task.
This is what makes Fond Remembrance of tremendous value. We assist you in the development of a written advance plan. The plan most importantly enables your wishes to be known, down to the last detail by your design. It is a valuable and insightful asset and is one of the kindest gifts you can give your family or those that survive you. It is with complete understanding that making these same decisions during an immediate loss may be difficult and overwhelming to some because the grieving process has already began. While making such decisions is difficult at any time, planning in advance for the death of a loved one can relieve you of that responsibility at the time of death, when you may be emotionally vulnerable.
