As the saying goes, times are changing. Twenty-five years ago, a funeral home website and Facebook pages were unheard of. Now nearly every funeral home has a website and some even use Facebook and other social media.
Social media is convenient and used by nearly everyone, so we are increasing our use of this medium. We think it will be a great way to keep in touch with everyone in our community.
For years we have posted obituaries on our website and this year we started posting them on our Facebook page as well. These Facebook posts are linked to our funeral home website, which makes it easy for family and friends to share obituaries on social media. We have noticed that in a short period of time, some Facebook posts have reached hundreds users.
Our blog will also make it easier for our customers to find information about funeral pre-planning. If this is something you have thought about for yourself or a family member, you can start the process by visiting our website. Here you can enter information that is needed for the funeral records, documents and the obituary. You can also look at the caskets and outer burial containers we offer and review the charges for many service options. We will discuss pre-planning in greater detail in a future blog post. Until then, feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
It is our goal to add content to this blog regularly – sharing information with you concerning funerals, cremation services, funeral pre-planning and other topics we feel are relevant and important.
The blog posts will also appear on our Facebook page, where you can ask questions and share your thoughts and opinions.
We are always thinking of ways to help grieving families and we hope this blog will be educational and informative.
