Meaningful Funerals

For centuries, funerals have served a purpose by helping us say goodbye to our loved ones.  The funeral service celebrates the life that has been lived, and offers family and friends the opportunity to honor and recognize their loved one with distinction. Sometimes, however, planning a funeral can lead to difficult decisions.

No matter what your wishes are for your cremation arrangement, we provide our families with knowledge and a wide array of options and resources resulting in a meaningful and lasting tribute.

 Veteran's Benefits

Turrentine-Jackson-Morrow always assist families with filling any necessary paperwork after the death of a veteran. For information regarding eligibility of VA burial  allowances, please visit the VA web site at  www.va.gov.

A flag is provided by Turrentine-Jackson-Morrow Funeral Home to honor the memory of the Veteran at no cost to the family. Flags may be draped over the casket or may accompany the urn of the deceased. One flag is given to the next-of-kin, but additional flags may be purchased.

 

 

Flat bronze, flat granite, flat marble, upright granite and upright marble headstones and markers are available to mark the grave of a veteran. Headstones and markers are inscribed with the name of the deceased, year of birth and year of death, and branch of service. Other inscriptions, such as military grade, rank or rate, war service, months and days of birth and death, symbol reflecting one’s beliefs, awards and the purple heart are available at the expense of the VA.

Headstones and Markers placed/set in a private cemetery are shipped at the government’s expense, but the cost of placing/setting the headstone or marker is the responsibility of the next-of-kin

Visit www.va.gov for more information.

 

Social Security Administration - Death Benefits

Grief Support

Coping with the loss of a loved one or caring for elderly loved ones can often be confusing, stressful, and emotionally challenging. We understand everyone handles grief and stress in their own way, and that’s why we want to give our families as many resources as possible to help with the grieving process.

The websites below provide articles on grief & loss including elderly care. We hope this information helps you, and your family, during this difficult time.
