HERITAGE MORTUARY Is COVID 19 Prepared...Safely Caring For Families During the Pandemic

For Immediate Release: March 30, 2020

Contact: Larnique Mickens * Phone Number: 702-852-1464 * Email Address: Info@heritagemortuary.org

Las Vegas, Nevada – Heritage Mortuary Inc. remains committed and prepared to safely care for the families it serves during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Whenever possible, Heritage Mortuary Inc. will continue to enable families to participate in the rituals that are most important to them.

And according to the CDC, at this time, there is no known risk associated with being in the same room at a funeral or visitation service with the body of someone who died of confirmed or suspected COVID-19; however, federal, state and local public health guidance may impact the size of gathering a family is able to plan. Depending on a family’s preferences, their loved one can be safely embalmed. Families may choose either burial or cremation as usual.

“At Heritage Mortuary Inc., we recognize our responsibility to protect the health of those we are privileged to serve,” said Larnique Mickens, Funeral Director “We will continue to guide families, as we always have, in ways they can meaningfully commemorate the life of their loved one, while adhering to the guidance issued by federal, state and local public health officials.”

Mickens continued: “Our staff remains vigilant about cleaning our facilities and ensuring we’re all following recommended healthy habits, such as staying home when sick, washing our hands, and covering coughs and sneezes. The CDC and our state and local public health officials have offered a lot of helpful guidance for businesses on this topic, which we continue to follow.”

We are offering the following while practicing social distancing:  On-Line Arrangements and, live streaming of the funeral services due to limited physical attendance (Only 10 family members including the clergy may attend).

A member of the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA), Heritage Mortuary Inc. regularly receives information via NFDA from the CDC, Department of Health and Human Services and other agencies about the evolution of COVID-19 in the United States. NFDA continues to lead the conversation with federal officials about the role of funeral service as it relates to the COVID-19 pandemic.

If the staff of Heritage Mortuary Inc. can be of assistance, please contact us at the contact information listed above.

The Job of a Mortician

Mortician, undertaker, and funeral director all refer to the same person, who aids in the planning of funeral services for the deceased.  They play a multitude of important roles in the planning process from coordinating the collection of necessary legal documentation to customizing services to meet the needs of the family of the deceased.  This position requires a person who is detail-oriented, caring, compassionate, and patient.  At Heritage, we are lucky to have that leader with us.  Trust in our team to plan a funeral that will honor the deceased and that will not be forgotten.

 

 

The Casket

A casket is a long encasement created for the purpose of burying the deceased.  Like anything that can be purchased, the quality and features of it can be heavily customized, which of course affects its price.  Caskets come in a variety of materials, such as bronze, copper, fiberglass, metal, steel, and wood, with each material having a different rate of decomposition when buried beneath the ground.  Some encasements have even been made waterproof.  The average casket is 2 feet in width, and the length varies depending on the person it is for.  The current cultural trend is shifting toward increased width, for more internal space.  On the outside, most will have multiple handles so it can be transported more easily before and after the wake, funeral service, and burial.  In the market, casket prices vary significantly, starting around $1,000 for a basic encasement to upwards of $30,000 or more for premium, high end models.  While there are many options, most people choose a middle-of-the-road casket for a few thousand dollars.

The Wake

A wake is a vigil that is held for someone who has passed away, typically next to the body of the deceased.  This gives friends and family a chance to remember their lost loved one and comfort each other during a difficult time. In the past, wakes occurred at the home of the person who died, but in recent years, cultural changes have shifted this gathering to mortuaries or funeral homes instead, which tend to be in central locations. The wake typically takes place on the day before a funeral or directly after the service is performed.  Religion tends to influence many elements of the wake, but as mentioned above, there are many different ways that you can create an experience as unique as the person its being performed for.  The formality of the event is a key item to consider.  Will you have a formal, structured program or an informal one, where you simply invite friends and family to a social gathering in remembrance of the deceased.  How many people will you invite?  Will the casket be open or closed?  Will you have soothing music or flowers at the event?  Each component of the wake should be considered to ensure a smooth event.

The Funeral Service

A funeral service is an event held to remember and pass on the life of a lost loved one.  There are many things to take into consideration.  Please see the below list for some of the key questions to consider:

Will you choose a funeral or a memorial service?

Despite providing the same benefit to attendees, a funeral service keeps the body of the deceased nearby, while a memorial service does not.  There is a significant distinction here and this is one of the first decisions that needs to be made prior to holding the event.  For your reference, funeral services are more common.

Where will the funeral ceremony be held?

Most funeral services are held in a church, but they do not have to be.  Some patrons opt to hold the ceremony at the gravesite in the cemetery, prior to burial.

Who will lead the ceremony?

Many times, this is a matter of preference, unless dictated by your faith.  Will the service be led by a minister, a priest, a rabbi, or someone else.

Does your religion follow particular customs regarding the funeral service?

Each faith maintains different guidelines and rules on the performance of funeral services.  

Will a eulogy be given?

A eulogy is a speech typically given after someone dies in tribute to their life, accomplishments, and memory.

Will music be played?

This is a matter of preference.  Some people choose to play light music to set a particular mood, while others prefer silence.

Will prayers or poems be read?

Prayers are a dignified request for help that are often read during the funeral service to ease the pain of loss and aid comforting of the family and friends of the deceased.  Prayers or poems can be read by anyone from the attendees of the event to the leader of the service.

Funeral Service Planning

There is a long list of items to consider during the funeral planning process.  We understand that it can be challenging, stressful, and overwhelming to plan a funeral during this time in your life, which is why we are here to help you.  Heritage Mortuary was founded with the core value of humble service.  Our compassionate staff members are here to guide you so that you can rest easy knowing that everything will work out just fine.  Contact us now and let’s work together to deliver a beautiful funeral service and to make your life easier while we do it.  We can be reached at (702) 852-1464.
