When my dad passed away just 2 weeks after being diagnosed with liver cancer, I was just 25 years old and had no idea where to even begin to plan a funeral. Nothing can ever make losing a loved one easier. While trying to merely survive the pain of experiencing the death of someone close to you – adding the burden of making final arrangements can quickly become too much to bear.
Funeral Care is something you don’t know a lot about until you need it, which was my experience in 2013 after my dad passed away. That entire time was such a blur and I feel like my family and I lost the closure that can be found in a funeral because we were just trying to survive it. Knowing how hard we struggled with the process, makes me forever grateful to learn that families across Western North Carolina have the option Moffitt Family Funeral Care is creating an innovative experience that focuses on healing in the time of death rather than selling a product for someone’s end of life.
