1st Annual 9/11 Patriot Walk at Sax-Tiedemann

Enjoy this short slide show of our 1st Annual 9/11 Patriot Walk at Sax-Tiedemann Funeral Home. Starting at the Veteran’s Memorial with our raising of the American Flag, we walked 1 mile passing the Fire Station and shaking hands with our First Responders and also passing our VFW Post, home of our local heroes. Thanks for the horns of support and supportive cheers along the way. Thanks to our dozens of marchers. And, mostly thanks to our First Responders, Veterans, and everyday heroes who run toward instead of away from the tragic scenes; the helpers!

Sax-Tiedemann Has Been Adapting to Meet Family Needs Since 1895

We’ve seen changes. And, on a count of that we’ve made changes. It’s hard to keep track of how many times we’ve added on to the original core of our building. With every new generation of families we’ve been serving for over a hundred years in some cases, or new first generations, and everyone in between, we’ve kept a careful eye on what changes have occurred that we could accommodate to make families feel more comfortable. Our rest and refreshment areas have been enlarged. Our parlors have seen brighter accents and more cozy furniture added to even larger space. Technology has enabled comforting changes too, with large screens showing highlights and videos of your loved one’s life, complete with music. An electronic registry has made it so much easier for families to acknowledge your kind presence with greater ease and efficiency. After arrangements are completed, we can pre-print envelopes for everyone who attended the services.

In the difficult days that follow a loss, we want our home to be your home; a warm and inviting place where you may greet your relatives and friends and leave all the large and small details to us. Being able to share memories and fellowship, and to celebrate the life of your loved one is the only concern we want you to have during the days you spend with us. While you provide and receive comfort from your family and friends, we’ll provide comfort to you with an environment that allows for everything you need. Because those needs are changing all the time, so are we. So, it may not always look the same every time, the warm and comfortable feeling you’ll have doesn’t change. We promise.

For information about pre-need or at-need services, please call 847-678-1950 or email us by clicking info@sax-tiedemann.com  We’re very happy to provide a tour of our facilities to any family who would like to visit us.

The most important question? How do you want to say Good Bye?

 

 

The families and friends who celebrate the life of a loved one are the most important part of the services to honor a person’s life. That is in essence, why we all gather to honor, mourn, remember and celebrate the life of a person we care deeply about. So, Stephen Dawson at Sax-Tiedemann Funeral Home begins his service as a Funeral Director by asking “How do you want to say Good Bye?”. A seemingly simple question, right? It is under normal circumstances, but when your world has been changed by a loss, circumstances are anything but normal.

Families can be so overcome with grief, and so overwhelmed with the planning process and all the details, that they briefly forget what the purpose is of gathering together for visitation and funeral arrangements. “Asking that very simple question puts families at ease. While they do have important decisions to make, their mindset changes to preparing a celebration of a life very dear to them. What would she want us to do? How can we make it more personal to each of us? If he could speak to us, what would he tell us to remember? Those are the questions families ponder in a way that helps them discover the answer to the question, How do you want to say Good Bye?” according to Stephen. Invariably, some greater satisfaction is felt by those family members doing the planning, understanding a greater purpose for how they complete the arrangements.

Sometimes the most meaningful questions are the very simplest ones.

Treasure; the moments of our life we remember.

So many events over time, remarkable or small, we remember precisely where we were and what we were doing when a moment captured us. Once we become captured by the moments, we capture them back and hold them in our memories and reflections for all time.

It may be the first time we held a newborn life, or the last time we held a loved one to say good bye, for now. There are events and moments that define how we see things and how we understand them from that moment forward. They become something we share with those we love over our entire lives. The reflection of an entire life, no matter how long, fills us with the moments to celebrate, remember, and recapture over and over again as we share those treasures at every opportunity.

We stay in touch.

Everyone we serve at Sax-Tiedemann is truly a friend, a neighbor. It’s important to us that we stay in touch even at the completion of services. Every year we have a Remembrance Service here at the funeral home for all the families we’ve served during the year. It’s uplifting and a chance to continue sharing and staying in touch.

It’s not uncommon that families need help with insurance, real estate or other legal matters after a loss. We maintain all our Death Certificates forever, should a copy be necessary for a family. Any number of questions may arise and we want our families to know that we are here for them whenever they need us. We’ve celebrated the life of their loved one together, and our family was entrusted to make the arrangements. That’s a privilege and an honor to us. When we say, call anytime; we mean anytime. Day or night, any day of the year. We’re here.

When a family chooses Cremation Services at Sax-Tiedemann, they never leave our care and custody.

Cremation has risen as a choice for final disposition. Families have a range of choices available with the final disposition of Cremation. Many choose a traditional visitation beforehand, as well as others who choose a Memorial Service at a later date for family and friends to gather and celebrate the life of their loved one. Sax Tiedemann can accommodate the desires of families from a very simple direct Cremation up to a full traditional service that includes visitation, a religious or civil service and burial of the Cremation urn or enurnment in a mausoleum. We are familiar with the religious rites of many faiths and will perform in accordance with those rites.

We maintain a Crematorium on our premises and therefore, from the moment we are notified by families of the loss of a loved one, the care and custody of your loved one will be our responsibility through to final disposition.

That eliminates worry and any additional transfer costs. We can accommodate Cremation requests at need or as a pre-planned disposition. For more information on Cremation call 847-678-1950 or email us by clicking info@sax-tiedemann.com <mailto:info@sax-tiedemann.com> A Professional Certified Cremationist from Sax-Tiedemann will respond.

promptly to your request for information.

Pre-planning; A Gift to Unburden Your Loved Ones and a Smart Economic Choice

 

There are a lot of good reasons for pre-planning your funeral services. The first and perhaps best reason is that you can ensure that your wishes are known to your family members and you can unburden them from making choices that may not be sure of.  Also, financial advisers have made this part of their client’s portfolio. In many cases, a person doesn’t have family living nearby or possibly even a close relative to handle their affairs.  No matter the circumstances, pre-need planning is a safe alternative. At Sax-Tiedemann, a separate and independent annuity account is set up entirely within your control if you choose to prepay for your arrangements. If Pre-planning includes pre-funding, the annuity will likely act as a protection against inflation of rising costs. You can also come in and we can discuss your concerns, free of charge and without any obligation. You may choose to pre-plan so we have a file saved for when you or your family need to access the information regarding your wishes.  We’re here to discuss Pre-arrangements or at need arrangements at any time that it’s convenient for you. Call us at 847-678-1950 or email us at: info@sax-tiedemann.com for more information or a pre-planning consultation.
For more information, or a consultation on pre-planning or at-need services, call 847-678-1950 or email us by clicking info@sax-tiedemann.com. It’s always an honor to serve those who served with such great honor.
