OBITUARIES

from page 97

Q : My mother has a prearranged funeral contract

with your chapel. She arranged and paid for a service
similar to the one we had for my father I I years ago.
Everything is fine with her three children except for
her insisting on the service being graveside. Should
we let her know we object, or just take on this issue
when we need your services?

A:

I would leave the discussion until the time
of need. Your mother felt she was giving you a gift.
Praise her and tell her how thoughtful she was to
do this. We can address the location of the service
when the time comes.
