Important Information For Survivors

We know it can be difficult selecting funeral homes. You can find comfort knowing Foster Funeral Home, Inc. is able to serve your needs; from basic to elaborate.  A funeral represents a purposeful opportunity to reflect on the meaning of a life lived, to express the impact of that life to family and friends, and to celebrate the life of the departed. While understanding that there is no “correct” funeral service, the service should be as unique as the life of the individual being honored. It is a time for human sharing in the deepest sense.

You and those you love are at the very center of the process, and the first, most important step is selecting one of your area funeral homes. The caring professionals at Foster Funeral Home, Inc. offer guidance while you and your family members make difficult choices. As you participate in the planning of the funeral, you will discover the true meaning of “a service of worth.”

It is our goal as funeral directors and associates to assist families; allowing an opportunity to find a sense of peace and joy in celebrating the life of the departed by providing an atmosphere that encourages emotional support. We invite family and friends to connect on the deepest levels and find mutual strength within our comfortable locations in Fulton and Hannibal.

Sources of Counseling

Some days will be better than others. Birthdays, anniversaries and holidays may present an unexpected reminder — bringing on a flood of emotion. Some think they should have moved on. Don’t judge yourself too harshly. If you or someone you know is struggling, we encourage you to seek the assistance from area professionals or group seminars where you may relate to individuals in similar situations within a safe environment.  But remember, what did or didn’t help a friend, may not have the same outcome for you.  A place where others do not quiz or place judgments on another person’s quest to explore the most important question, “WHY?”   There are a variety of organizations available to assist you and your loved ones through this difficult journey. You may also find comfort contacting clergyperson to help you find the group that’s right for you. If you or a member of your family would like additional information, contact one of our funeral directors or associates.
