What to Expect - Poland-Thompson Funeral Home

What to Expect

While it’s true that most people do not know what to do when a death has occurred, we believe this to be due to the simple fact that death comes into our lives less often than it did for our ancestors. After all, average life spans are significantly longer today, and our medical services vastly improved.

But there’s a downside too; we can be ill-prepared to deal with a death of a loved one.  Death can be expected, and due to a terminal illness, or old age and declining health; or sudden and completely unexpected. Either way, the death of someone you love can leave you feeling lost, alone, and unsure where to turn for guidance. 

We believe that making funeral arrangements doesn’t have to add to the stresses of the moment. If you’ve recently experienced such a loss, our staff will guide you in planning a funeral. To reduce funeral expenses, we’ll help you in the selection of an appropriate funeral casket or cremation urn–all while working together to create a meaningful funeral ceremony or memorial service for your loved one.

This area of our website will guide you in the right direction. However, if you have any questions or simply wish to speak to one of our Funeral Directors to share your story and explore your options, please contact us.
