Simplicity and Eloquence
Following your wishes and ideas - That is a good service
Charles Lindbergh, the first man to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean, laid out exactly how he wanted to be buried, what the funeral was to be like, and what hymns he wanted sung. As soon as he died, his wishes were carried out: he was dressed in his normal clothes and buried, without embalming, in a plain wooden coffin.
On the other hand, former President Franklin D. Roosevelt left a four-page letter with explicit instructions for his funeral. He wanted a very simple funeral with no hearse, lying in state, or embalming. Burial was to be in an unlined grave in a plain wooden casket. Unfortunately, these instructions were found in his safe-three days after his elaborate funeral and burial.
Most of us, even those who have soared to great heights in life don’t wish for elaborate services or monuments dedicated to our lives. And we certainly don’t want our final act to be a burden on our families and loved ones. Chuck & Heide are known for their attention to detail and their desire to carry out your wishes just as you intended. Give them a call and see what a difference they can make for you.
