What to Bring?

Below is a list of items we will request. While it is not necessary to have any or all of these at our first meeting, it is helpful.

  • Photos: one recent, one favorite (for several memorial items), and 30 favorites for a memorial video.
  • Paperwork: Social Security number, date/place of birth, parents’ and survivors’ full names, and military service records (if applicable).
  • Clothing your loved one would wear on a daily basis, including undergarments, socks/hosiery, jewelry, lapel pin, watch, rosary, glasses, cologne, lipstick, nail polish, etc.

For those who have preplanned their service, please bring the funeral planning paperwork including the family planning guide and insurance policy or bank trust forms. Many of the items above will be specified and we can talk about them at our meeting.
