At Curlew Hills, we understand that making arrangements at a time of loss can be difficult. We are here to make the process as easy and smooth as possible.
We are available by phone 24 hours a day / 7 days a week for emergency needs. Please call us 727.789.2000 anytime you need us.
Immediately following the loss of a loved one is a very emotional time. Here are some simple steps to help guide you.
What to do immediately upon the death of a loved one:
1. Call Curlew to arrange for transport.
After the death has occurred, please call us. We are available 24 hours a day. We will help you make whatever arrangements are necessary.
2. Call those closest to you.
Reach out to family, friends and clergy to inform them of your loved one’s passing. Follow your instincts on who to call. You could ask a close friend or family member to help you make these calls.
3. Meet with us to plan the service.
Come to our convenient location in Palm Harbor and sit down with one of our caring funeral directors. Whether it’s a funeral or cremation, we will help you create a personalized and memorable service for your loved one.
4. Gather Information.
Start gathering photos or personal items for the service. Gather items that truly represent you loved one. For example, if he or she liked golf, maybe you want to have a golf club or a photo of him playing golf at the service. It’s all up to you. Also, a photo and bio information for the obit will be needed. We will take care of placing the obit in the newspaper for you.
