Like most families, when we lost a loved one we had no idea what to do next, who to turn to, or where to begin. It was this personal funeral planning experience that helped me discover the real purpose and mission of a website such as *******www.FuneralResources****. Through extensive research, family surveys, and my own familie's experience planning a funeral, I now understand what most families are searching for, and the questions they need answered.
In fact, our surveys tell us there are three main reasons most families who planing a funeral seek help on the Internet:
1.A loved one has recently passed
2.A loved one has been diagnosed as terminally ill
3.They are interested in pre-planning a funeral
Also, our surveys also showed there are three basic funeral planning and memorial service questions most families are seeking answers to:
1.What should I know?
2.Who can I turn to?
3.Where do I begin?
With such an emotional situation, most families are just like mine...they feel vulnerable, uncertain, and quite frankly, uneducated on what to know, what to ask, or who to turn to. During times like these, families need to know they are working with a funeral home or funeral director who is looking out for their best interests; someone who is credible and qualified.
With more than 25,000 Funeral Homes, Cemeteries, and Crematories, the Internet is flooded with Funeral Home Directories. However, the reality is most families need more than "just another name" in a Funeral Home Directory.
What families are really searching for, and quite frankly deserve), is a place where they find quick and easy access to the most qualified funeral professionals, combined with the right tools and funeral resources to help them research and learn about the key aspects of planning a funeral.
As you can see, this is now my personal mission...to offer a place where families find answers to all of their funeral planning questions, helping them become more confident, educated, and empowered. Christopher P. Hill, Founder, *******www.FuneralResources****
