Expressing Your Needs to a Licensed Funeral Director
The Gabaldon Mortuary family has been serving families in Albuquerque for over 65 years during some of their most difficult times. Let us help you plan and prepare your cremation service, memorial service, or the burial arrangements for your loved one.
A meeting with a funeral director is the first step to begin the planning process.
What to Communicate with Your Funeral Director
Being able to communicate your wants and needs to your funeral director will help them organize an honorable legacy for your loved one. During your meeting at Gabaldon Mortuary, speak to your funeral director about your loved ones:
- Favorite music and hobbies
- Wishes and requests
- Legal requirements, documents, or authorizations
- Time constraints, or out-of-town family members
- Whether your loved one will be buried or cremated
- Your preferences for casket or cremation urn
- Your loved ones who will be involved in the ceremony (if any)
- Your budget
- Organizations the deceased belonged to
- Next-of-kin’s memorial service preferences
This is also the perfect time to ask questions about how the funeral planning process works, how your loved one will be cared for, or anything else that you would like to address.
Preplan a Funeral
If you are concerned about the effect that your passing will have on your loved ones, speak with a licensed funeral director to make arrangements in advance. You are also able to elect to enroll in funeral insurance that can cover part or all of the cost of your funeral expenses.
