The Value of a Satisfaction Guarantee

A funeral service isn’t just a time for remembering and celebrating the life of a loved one: it’s also an important step in the grieving process because it provides an opportunity to say our final goodbyes. The death of a loved one is always a sad time, and you need to be allowed to work through your grief at your own pace.

When you work with a funeral home that offers a satisfaction guarantee, you are choosing a dedicated partner for the entire planning process, which will allow you the time and space to grieve naturally. A funeral home that cares enough to guarantee your satisfaction won’t ever cut corners, and will provide you with:

  • Emotional support
  • The highest level of service
  • The greatest value
  • Answers to all your questions
  • The reassurance and information you need to make important decisions

At Moles Farewell Tributes we pride ourselves on taking care of grieving families who need our support. We help you make end-of-life arrangements for your loved one, and will be there every step of the way to guide you through the funeral process.

Walking you Through the Memorial Planning

Planning a funeral can be difficult, especially if your loved one didn’t leave any explicit instructions. At Moles Farewell Tributes, part of our satisfaction guarantee entails helping you make the tough decisions, including:

  • Figuring out a venue and what type of service to have
  • Deciding on food options and table arrangements
  • Choosing flowers and music

Our goal is to support you as you support each other, and to make it as easy as possible for you to plan a service and unique memorial event that will honor your loved one, reflect your values, and bring your family together in your time of need.

Respecting the Natural Grieving Process

The grieving process is a difficult but normal and necessary part of life. Interrupting the process can prolong it further, and make it even harder to heal after the loss of a loved one. A full-service funeral home will put your needs first and take the pressure off you by answering your questions, laying out your options simply and plainly, and giving you time to make decisions and plans without having to take your focus off yourself and your family. With a farewell planner at your side, you can share memories, laugh, cry, and make the necessary arrangements without being overwhelmed or ignoring your basic emotional needs.

Providing You with Options

One of the most difficult parts of planning a funeral is making decisions on behalf of a lost loved one that you can’t consult for advice. The right funeral home will take the time to describe your options, explain the benefits of each choice, and help you decide what best suits the needs and desires of your family.

When it comes to end-of-life options, you will be able to choose from a traditional burial or cremation, and some funeral homes offer the option of a green burial, which focuses on allowing a loved one’s remains to return to the earth as naturally as possible. You will also have to determine what kind of service to have, such as a small, intimate memorial or a large and celebratory gathering that involves the community.

Finally, you will have to make decisions regarding the final resting place and marker, which will provide friends and family with a place to come in the future to pay respects, remember, and honor the life of the person you’ve lost. When you have help making these decisions from a funeral home that truly cares, it makes the entire process easier to handle.
