It’s always hard when someone dies, but no one wants to have to plan a funeral when they’re grieving.

Thankfully, funeral directors can help guide the process, whether you’re planning for a loved one or pre-planning your own funeral to ease the stress on your family. But most us don’t think about the people who hold those thankless jobs until we’re sitting across the desk from one of them.

One man who knows that best is Tim Wingen, who’s a funeral director with Miller Funeral Home. He gave us some inside information to take a little of the mystery out of jobs like his and hopefully put more of us at ease about funeral planning in general. Because–let’s face it–we’re all going to have to do it one day.

The Team at Miller Funeral Home is there to help guide you in making arrangements as you say goodbye.
