We offer our help not only to families at a time of death, but also to individuals who wish to make plans before the funeral. Our goal is to help you make decisions by providing information and explaining the many options that are available.
Whether your choice is burial or cremation, a traditional or innovative and unique service, Lutz Funeral Home will provide our full support before, during and after the funeral.
What to do first depends on the circumstances of the death. Death can be expected as a result of old age or declining health, or sudden and completely unexpected. Either way, the death of someone you love can leave you feeling lost, alone and confused about where to turn for guidance.
When death occurs in a hospital, nursing home or similar facility, the staff will usually contact the funeral home of your choice and, if necessary, arrange an autopsy. When death occurs at home or in the workplace, a family member should contact emergency personnel and the person’s physician, if he or she was under a doctor’s care.
It will be up to you, or someone you designate, to notify others. One of the first phone calls you should make is to the funeral home you will entrust with the care of your loved one. Our Funeral Directors can help you arrange for transport of your loved one to the funeral home and help you obtain a death certificate.
