Would You Like Someone to Go with You?
Perhaps you'd like another member of the family to come along with you. Or maybe you'd rather have a friend, or close neighbor join you in the first visit to the funeral home. While it's not necessary to bring someone with you for moral support, it can be very beneficial.

- Hebrew Name of the deceased
- Was he/she a Veteran
