"Don't do anything for me."
"Just take me outside and bury me in the yard."
"Put me in my favorite kitchen jar and put me on the mantle."
These aren't lines from any of our advertising, these are comments that we hear everyday from people planning their own funerals and from families making funeral arrangements when a loved one has died.
Let's face it... talking about death isn't easy.
Our advertising was created to help families and provoke discussion about what matters most in their lives and how loved ones have made a difference. These discussions can give families important insights they can use to remember and honor the lives of their loved ones.
It is our intent, through our advertising, that you can have end of life discussions with anyone you hold dear – your parents, children, grandparents, a spouse or a friend. It can happen anywhere you and your loved one are most comfortable – over a meal, at home, on a walk, at a family gathering or while playing a game. Your conversation can take place at any time, not just at the end of life. We hope that you will consider Advanced Planning to help ease the burden from your family at the time of a loss.
We know losing a loved one is hard. FRENCH has been serving our community for 111 years and we honor and remember each and every life. We have used modest humor along with thought provoking themes to spark conversation and hopefully encourage some robust conversations around the dinner table. Plan ahead...
