We are here for you 24 hours a day to help you in your most difficult time.
What to expect...
The death of someone you love can leave you feeling lost, alone, and unsure where to turn for guidance. While it’s true that most people do not know what to do when a death has occurred, expected or unforeseen, we believe that making funeral arrangements doesn’t have to add to the stresses of the moment.
When a death occurs, call 801-225-1530 night or day, and our compassionate and professional Licensed Funeral Directors will come to transfer your loved one to our funeral home.
Most likely within the first 24 hours of your loved one’s death, you will meet with us at the funeral home to have an arrangement conference. Without a doubt, this is a difficult time for you and your loved ones. Yet, it’s comforting to know every member of the funeral home staff will be there to do their utmost to make this difficult time a little bit easier. The Funeral Director will guide you in making all the necessary decisions. It’s good to know you are not alone.
Who is responsible to make decisions?
It’s important to know exactly who is legally responsible for making the funeral arrangement decisions for a loved one. If the deceased has not expressed their wishes through a written document such as a Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care, or a Last Will and Testament, where the deceased has designated an agent to fulfill their wishes, then the chain of command is commonly as follows:
Surviving Adult Child/Children
Surviving Adult Sibling
Parent of Minor Child
The person designated as the responsible party, whoever that may be, needs to be present to make decisions and sign documents. If you have questions about the accepted kinship-related order of precedence, or are unclear as to who is the responsible person in funeral planning, call us at anytime and a Licensed Funeral Director will assist you.
Should anyone else come to the arrangement conference?
Assisting in making the final funeral arrangement decisions can be very empowering and help someone come to terms with the loss. If there are people in your life who you feel should be asked to participate, make sure you ask them.
What information should I bring for the Death Certificate?
Life and death are full of legalities. When a loved one dies, it is not just an emotional matter for those left behind, it is a legal one which requires the timely completion of paperwork. The Funeral Director will assist you in completing the Death Certificate Information at the arrangement conference.
You will need the following information:
Date/Time/Place of Death
Social Security Number
Years of Education
Date/Place of Birth
Mother's Full Maiden Name/ Father's Full Name
Veteran/Branch of Service/War
Our entire staff will work with the Doctor signing it and do all that is needed to file the Death Certificate for your loved one.
From casket choices to flowers, we provide individualized services designed to meet the needs of each unique family and their traditions they desire to carry out.
