Pre-Planning provides relief to families.

Keith Granum’s mom had become very ill toward the end of her life for a number of years. During those years where he contemplated what arrangements she might desire, he was not able to talk to her about it, wanting to always keep her spirits up. When he realized that some time before her illness she had made pre-arrangements with Stephen Dawson at Sax-Tiedemann Funeral Home, and even pre-paid for the arrangements, he felt great relief knowing that she had made her own choices. The financial and accounting burden was lifted as well. Keith’s mission now was to carry out those wishes with Steve’s professional assistance.

The illness had been difficult on Mrs. Granum. Keith brought a picture of her with beautiful curly hair and a beautiful expression. When Keith viewed his mom in preparation for the visitation, he saw his mother appearing as she did in the picture taken 20 years before. As Keith relates, “She looked just beautiful”. Adding, “It was just amazing to see my mom in such vibrance.” As Stephen Dawson will often share, “It’s our mission and responsibility for that lasting vision to be one that is beautiful and memorable”. Keith would confirm that this was the overwhelming memory he’ll have of his mom. As it should be.
