Free Thinker Funeral Packages
Free Thinker Funeral Packages aka Non Religious Funeral Packages are getting commonplace in Singapore as more people are choosing to be non-religious.
It can be a death in a family or even the passing of a colleague, the funeral for a free thinker must be done with care so as not to affiliate the funeral to any religion. Irrespective of the political affiliation or even the cultural beliefs of the person, it is important to plan a funeral service for the person bearing in mind that the funeral should be non-religious. This is to respect the wishes of the deceased who was a free thinker.
The Free Thinker Funeral does not encapsulate any particular religion, and therefore the whole process is simpler. The most important thing to note is that the deceased needs to be respectfully laid to rest. The family should, in conjunction with the family help arrange the Free Thinker Funeral in accordance with the deceased's last wishes. Here are some things you need to have in mind about free thinker funeral packages:
Consider the Last Wishes of the Freethinkers
Before death comes knocking on their doors, some people would have already planned for their own funeral. They might even have made known of their last wishes either on paper or verbally to those close to them. The least you can do is follow the wishes of the person. This is a show of respect to the dead.
It is important therefore to consult the relatives and friends regarding the person’s funeral preferences before making any arrangements. To help you with making wiser decisions with regards to a Free Thinker Funeral, here are some tips:
Compare the Different Available Freethinker Funeral Packages
Let the funeral directors assist you in understanding what different packages will entail. Don’t just buy because it is the cheapest, or just because you think it will be the most appropriate. There might be some areas that are not the way you understand them. Therefore, let a funeral director guide you in the process of understanding what is contained in each of the packages. When you feel you have decided on the most appropriate free thinker funeral package after discussions with a funeral director, you can then consult the family members and make the purchase.
Choose the Free Thinker Package You Are Most Comfortable With
All the family members should be comfortable with the Freethinker Funeral Packages that is decided upon. Therefore, you need to make sure the family representative is aware of the choice, and they are comfortable with the choice. Remember to also discuss about the total final amount to pay for so that you are not in a fix the last day. This is something that has delayed several funeral arrangements in the past.
Take Joy and Unleash Your Creativity When Planning for The Free Thinker Funeral
Planning successfully for the funeral of a free-thinker might require some creative juices. With no religious restrictions, the funeral is focused solely on the deceased. Everything could be done in remembrance of the deceased. The theme of the funeral could also be something related to the occupation of the deceased when he or she was alive. Take for instance if the deceased is an avid traveler, a map and a globe could be placed as a decoration at the funeral site.
Freethinker Funeral Packages should be thought of properly even if the person is not a member of any religion. Due to the lack of rituals and the absence of someone spearheading the funeral, you might not know what to do. Having a funeral director at this point in time would definitely prove useful. This is the most common practice since funeral directors are knowledgeable about the Freethinker Funeral Packages.
