The Joyce Family Guide

The Joyce Family guide is a tool we give to our families to begin sharing the story of their loved one’s life. You’ll find sections where you can fill in likes, hobbies, and interests. Feel free to add as much as you want. The more information you provide, the more personal each experience will become.

Planning A Funeral

After our first contact about planning a funeral you'll receive a letter by hand or via email that has the following information on it. It's a good starting point. You'll also receive the most recent edition of our family guide. A complete price breakdown will also be given to you. For things we don't provide we'll give you estimates of those costs too.  While each individual item doesn't seem like a big deal you really need to look at all of the information we give you to get a really good idea of costs.

Since everybody only gets one funeral and we can't go back and do it over we really want to get it right. That's why we're going to take whatever time you need to explore your options and make good decisions for you and your family to begin healing.

On behalf of our Life Celebration Home and myself I would like to offer you and your family our help in planning funeral arrangements.  While no decisions need to be made right away there are certain items of information that we will need.  Below is a list that I hope will make things a little easier for you. I am also attaching Your Family’s Guide to Creating a Meaningful Life Celebration for your review. This guide will help you and your family create a personal and meaningful ceremony to be shared with family and friends. We encourage you to take a moment to review this guide with your family. Rest assured every detail and concern will be addressed.
