Post Death Matters

Death comes to us all. Yet many find death difficult to accept when it strikes a loved one. Emotions such as grief, anger or confusion may set in. But there are many arrangements that must be made while we cope with these emotions. It is our hope that we can make things a little easier for the bereaved with information on death-related matters such as arranging a wake, death registration, etc on this web page.
