Is a Funeral Worth the Hassle and Expense?

When a loved one dies, it’s natural to feel overwhelmed by the thought of planning a funeral or memorial service. The details, the cost, and the emotional investment may seem to add more stress to an already difficult situation.

At Calhoun Funeral Home & Cremation Service, we know it’s extremely important to honor and celebrate the life of a loved one. Throughout our years of service in Cleveland and Akron we’ve seen over and over again that a well-planned funeral significantly benefits the grieving process. Psychologists and grief counselors agree: Funerals can be a healing experience, helping survivors reminisce and say goodbye while surrounded by family and friends.

Our team of professionals genuinely cares about the families we serve and designs services with specific needs and budgets in mind. You may be surprised how many unique options are available to help you remember your loved one in a way that is meaningful, highly personal, and incredibly affordable.

Another service many families utilize is our preplanning process, which involves selecting arrangements from the comfort of home or at our location.

Not only will our team make the funeral preparations as seamless as possible, we will also clearly describe the finances involved. A funeral is more affordable than you think, since there are so many possibilities available, and the service will only include those options your family needs and wants. Don’t let financial concerns hold you back from contacting us or completing our online planning form.

Your wishes and preferences are our priority, and you can customize the funeral experience from start to finish, including the obituary, visitation, and reception.
