New York State Funeral Directors Association

Making funeral plans usually doesn't top anyone's list of things they want to do.

But after a loved one passes away, you might find yourself given the responsibility of planning their funeral.

During this emotionally stressful time, it's important to know what resources are available for funeral planning and what you can do to plan a ceremony that honors the life your loved one lived while respecting the family and friends who are still living.
