HOW YOU BEGIN HEALING WITH
BOREK JENNINGS
Losing a loved one is a life-altering event. For
most of us, it happens infrequently and with little
or no warning. Even when we feel like we are
prepared, we can be surprised by the depth and
power of the emotions that are stirred up by an
acute loss. Yet, in the period of time following a
loss, we know there are other family members
and friends who are struggling to understand
and cope with the loss we have all experienced.
Additionally, there are questions to be answered,
forms to fill out and arrangements to be made. It
can seem overwhelming.
We are here to help. Our Acute Loss Experts
are here to help your family begin healing. We
understand the Acute Loss Period, and can walk
through this experience with you. Our Healing
Support Services will equip you and your family
to understand and attend to your emotional,
relational and spiritual needs, this will also
prepare you to help other family members and
friends begin healing.
We cannot remove the pain caused by loss. But,
having a plan and learning how to embrace and
survive the loss of a loved one, can make all the
dierence in the world. Thank you for trusting us
to help you and your family Begin Healing.

HEALING SUPPORT SERVICES
THE ACUTE LOSS PERIOD®
The Acute Loss Period is the time between the event of
death and the onset of grief. We help you understand The
Acute Loss Period so you can be empowered to help yourself
and those you care about during this dicult time. This
understanding will help you cope with the loss and then
begin the journey of grief and healing.
STAR CLASS: HEALING SUPPORT FOR CHILDREN
For parents, the task of telling their children that a loved
one has died can be anxiety provoking. It can also be
hard to know how to include children in the gathering and
Community Farewell. To address this need, we oer the
20-25 minute STAR Class to every family with children ages
3-15. The class, provided at the beginning of your private
family time, helps children learn about death and teaches
them practical ways to participate in this life event. During
the class, the children make a special STAR for their loved
one. This STAR serves as a transitional object, providing
an important task and sense of security as they rejoin your
family and see their loved one when the class is completed.
ADULT LOSS CLASS
Have you ever wondered why we have funerals? Most people
have. The Adult Loss Class is based on the STAR Class, but
is designed to help adults understand the Acute Loss Period
and to strengthen one’s ability to participate in meaningful
and intentional ways throughout the loss experience.
FAMILY FAREWELL
When we see a deceased loved one, their death is made real
to us. Without it being made real, we can’t begin to cope,
grieve and heal. This is usually the time when a family’s
emotional and relational needs are most poignant. We are
trained and prepared to respond, care for and actively coach
each generation of your family during this important and
dicult time.
FAMILY COACHING
The Family Farewell is usually followed by a public time of
gathering with family and close friends. When they arrive,
you may be feeling emotionally vulnerable but having a
plan can make this transition easier. We provide specialized
instruction to you and your family to equip you with practical
ways to manage this transition and confidently connect with
others as you reflect on your loved one’s life with those who
come to the gathering.
COACHING AND GUIDING FRIENDS
People often ask, “What do you say to someone who has
experienced loss?” Friends and family attending your public
gathering will receive encouragement and instruction on
how they can help you and your family during this time. Our
Healing Farewell Guides invite them to Connect, Reflect, and
Celebrate with you and thank them for providing their most
important gift—their presence.
GATHERING POINTS
Your memorabilia will serve as gathering points for family
and friends to help them share stories and remember your
loved one’s life. We display these treasured items in a way
that provides easy access, enjoyment and intimacy. The best
way to invite others into your loss is to share a story about
your loved one. This gives others permission to tell you their
stories as well.
EDUCATING
Before the Farewell & During Emotional Needs
FAREWELL MEMORIES
This questionnaire will help prompt memories of your loved
one’s life. These memories are collected and shared with the
clergy or celebrant, as well as with other family members and
friends, to help them prepare for creating and participating
in a memorable and meaningful Community Farewell. These
memories should span the course of your loved one’s life and
include the funny, memorable and significant events in their
life and in the life of your family.
COMMUNITY FAREWELL NOTICE
We help you create an online and/or printed obituary with
a memorial photo. Beyond facts, the Community Farewell
Notice should reflect your loved one’s life and legacy and
share important information about your family and the
Community Farewell.
ONLINE GUESTBOOK
Family and friends will be able to leave their names and
messages on an easy to use online registry. A printed copy of
this registry will be delivered to your family following the
Community Farewell.
MESSAGE OF COMFORT
We provide a toll-free number that can be used by your
family and friends to leave audio recordings of memories and
thoughts about your loved one. These recorded Messages of
Comfort will be saved and delivered to your family.
FAREWELL KEEPSAKE
This heartwarming memento for family and friends includes a
photograph, personalized design and verse. These memorial
folders are often kept in desks, dressers and chests for years
following a death and provide everyone with a cherished
keepsake.
HEALING FAREWELL GUIDES
Our Healing Farewell Guides serve as your host/hostess and
are prepared to provide for your every need during your
family’s gathering time. Because we believe in preserving the
sanctity of your loss experience, we are prepared to respond
at a moment’s notice to any situation that may distract from
your experience. At the conclusion of the evening, your
Guide will complete a final list of important details for the
next day’s Community Farewell.
THE CONNECTING CIRCLE
The Connecting Circle is the area immediately around the
casket or memorial table. This is a place with few words and
much love. Many quiet moments of connection with close
friends and family are shared within this circle. We will give
special attention to this sacred space so the connections
there can be as meaningful as possible.
“WHAT I REMEMBER BEST” NOTES
Small notecards will be placed on tables throughout the
gathering room to allow friends and family to write down
a memory or a thought they would like to share with your
family. The notes will be collected and displayed on an easel
during the Community Farewell and then given to your family
after the service.
REFLECTION PHOTO DISPLAYS
As you share your favorite photographs of your loved one,
you allow those who gather to remember happier times and
to reflect on the things that matter the most in life. Pictures
are the primary catalyst for the reflective thinking that occurs
at every Community Farewell.

COMMUNITY FAREWELL WEBCAST
For those unable to attend a Community Farewell, our web-
cast provides the opportunity to watch and listen to the
service online. We provide you with a DVD that includes the
video of the Community Farewell.
FACE TO FACE
As others share their memories and photos, we understand
more fully the legacy of those we love. Our Face to Face
memorial wall provides an interactive online experience and
the latest in social media connectivity. Friends and loved
ones can light candles, select icons, leave messages and
share photos or videos, all from a single memorial page.
CLERGY CONNECTION
We will compile the messages and memories from the
Online Guestbook, Message of Comfort, “What I Remember
Best” Notes, and Farewell Memories questionnaire,
and provide that information to the clergy or master
of ceremonies. This will help the clergy or master of
ceremonies more accurately reflect your loved one’s life to
those who gather at the Community Farewell.
FAREWELL TRIBUTE
A picture paints a thousand words.” Images can creatively
tell a life story. Using photos provided by you and your
family and a music background, we will produce a DVD that
spans the life of your loved one. In the midst of our loss,
as we reflect on the meaning of their lives, we want to be
inspired and make space to be touched by joy. The Farewell
Tribute accomplishes this by weaving the pieces of Sharing,
Gathering, Connecting, and Reflecting into an inspiring
experience for those who attend the Community Farewell.
COMMUNITY FAREWELL
The Community Farewell draws from each Healing Support
Service to create a meaningful and unique public ceremony
that empowers the family, engages friends, inspires
community, celebrates life, and nurtures healing.
DOVE RELEASE
The dove, with its powerful symbolism, can be a moving
part of any service. Many who have attended a Community
Farewell have told us that the Dove Release was the most
meaningful part of the service for them. A Dove Release is
provided April 1 through November 30. Through the winter,
the Dove Release is replaced by an indoor tribute.
EMPOWERING
During Spiritual Needs
FLORAL PHOTO REGISTRY
A photo is taken of each floral arrangement and provided
to you as an aid to help you acknowledge those who sent
flowers.
GRIEF SUPPORT
We recognize that the day after the Community Farewell is
your first day of managing life without your loved one. We
oer grief support services to assist your family in beginning
a healthy grief experience. Grief is unavoidable, but grieving
well now, rather than postponing your grief, will enable you
to return to life and establish a new norm.
ATTORNEY CONSULTATION
We provide a confidential session with an attorney to answer
the legal questions that arise when closing an estate.
STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE TO CLOSING AN ESTATE
This guide lists the activities you may need to consider when
closing an estate. It includes formats for letters to creditors
as well as checklists to keep you on task during each
important step in the process.

GATHERING POINTS
After expressing condolences, what do you say to those who have had a loved one die? This question
causes anxiety for those attending your gathering time and for family members who are unsure
of what to say to their friends. We strongly encourage your family to bring to the gathering time
personal items that foster fond memories. Our sta will create Gathering Points that will allow you to
easily explain the significance of the items. Here are some suggestions.

HOW TO WRITE A EULOGY
The term eulogy sounds sti and formal, but in reality some of the best eulogies are much more
emotional, fluid and sometimes even lighthearted or slightly comical. The true goal of a eulogy is to
share memories and feelings that help you and the audience celebrate the life of the deceased and
remind each other how much you love that person. The more personal you can get in your eulogy,
the better. Ending with “I love _____” will really cement the meaning of everything you have to say.
Here is a basic plan for preparing a eulogy.
GATHER SUBSTANCE
First, get a copy of the obituary prepared by the family or funeral
provider; it will have some basic facts about the deceased. Now think
about the stories you remember, or the turn of phrase or typical
behavior that captures your loved one’s character so well. Talk with
other survivors, so the picture you present will include their ideas and
memories as well.
FORM A THEME
A theme gives unity to the eulogy, helping your listeners to see the rich
patterns of this life. The theme can be a word that describes the life lived
or an activity or virtue that the deceased subscribed to. When speaking
of a friend, you might mention the various roles your friend successfully
played in life - Richard the businessman, Richard the family man and
Richard the champion bowler.
ORGANIZE THE STORY
Write your notes in bullet point form on sheets of paper or on small
index cards—one idea to a card. Now group the cards into piles of similar
topics. Then sort each pile of cards into a logical order.
DRAFT YOUR EULOGY
Write out the first draft. Typing this draft on a computer will make editing
easier in the long run. Use linking sentences to make each topic flow
easily into the next. Pay the most attention to your beginning and ending.
As you write and polish, keep the words “reflecting” and “celebrating”
in your mind. If it is appropriate, include a few moments of humor or
lightheartedness.
PRACTICE BEFORE YOU PREACH
If you are not used to speaking in public, practice your speech by reading
it aloud to your spouse, best friend or someone else you trust. Read the
speech into a tape recorder, your phone or your computer and then play
it back. You’ll be able to polish it some more. Above all, remember to
breathe. If you are afraid you might break down while reading the eulogy,
ask someone ahead of time to be ready to take over at a signal from you.
Just knowing you have a backup speaker will probably be all you need to
stay calm.
PREPARE FOR TEARS
One of the greatest fears of the eulogist, especially for men, is the public
display of tears. It is essential to remember that one of the greatest
benefits of tears in the relief of emotional stress that is typically bottled
within at dicult times in our life. Aside from the relief issue, public tears
are proof positive that the eulogist is telling the truth. We cannot lie
and cry at the same time. Remember that the magic of the eulogy is the
public declaration of love and an “I love you” mixed with tears will long
be remembered.

TO NOTIFY YOUR FAMILY ABOUT
YOUR PRE-ARRANGEMENT
Dear ,
The purpose of my letter is to let you know that I have made pre-arrangements
with the Borek Jennings Funeral Homes. There is nothing for you to be alarmed
about. Planning my farewell was just a very important part of getting all of my
affairs in order. All of the important records regarding my farewell are on file at the
location noted below.
I have made the best plan that I can at this time to help you begin the healing
process when the time comes. Borek Jennings is prepared to teach you the seven
stages of acute loss that normally follow the loss of a loved one and guide you
through the emotional, relational and spiritual needs that accompany the stages.
I did this to help you during a time when making important decisions can be very
difficult, especially immediately after I’m gone. It makes me feel so much better
knowing that you will never have to worry about being overwhelmed with this task.
Please keep this letter in a safe place. If anything should ever happen to me, you
should call the chapel checked below. They have my arrangements on file.
Love,

SERVICE SATISFACTION GUARANTEE
We realize how dicult the selection of a funeral home can be, especially at an emotionally trying
time. We are certain that we can provide you with services that are superior to any other funeral
home. Therefore, we oer you a SERVICE SATISFACTION GUARANTEE. If for any reason you are not
satisfied with any portion of our service we pledge to surrender that portion of our service fee.
PAYMENT POLICY
Borek Jennings Funeral Home has established a uniform policy to serve all families fairly and to prevent
misunderstandings. This payment policy enables us to contain our costs to all of the families we serve.
Our policy requires that all financial arrangements must be completed prior to the setting of services or
viewing times. PAYMENT FOR MERCHANDISE AND SERVICES IS DUE ONE FULL DAY BEFORE THE SERVICE
TIME OR USE OF OUR MERCHANDISE OR PROPERTY.
ACCEPTABLE PAYMENT ARRANGEMENTS
OPTION ONE: Cash or Check. Checks are subject to electronic funds verification. Third party checks are NOT
acceptable.
OPTION TWO: Visa – MasterCard – Discover.
OPTION THREE: Assignable insurance, for the face value of the policy only, once the insurance company has
verified the assignability and beneficiary. Policies under two years old are generally contestable and are NOT
acceptable. When acceptable insurance has been assigned, a monthly statement may be sent to the purchaser
until payment is received from the insurance company. When payment is received, a statement may be sent
showing the amount, date, and paid in full or new balance due. The normal processing time for a policy is 4 to
6 weeks. If face value of policy is less then the cost of merchandise and services, Option 1 or 2 is required one
day before service to satisfy financial arrangements. There is a $275.00 fee added to the contract for the use
of this payment option.
Borek Jennings Funeral Home does not accept future payment from Estate Funds.
PRODUCT WARRANTIES
Our Funeral Home makes no representations or warranties about the protective value of certain caskets or
outer burial containers other than those made by the manufacturer. The only warranties, expressed or implied,
granted in connection with goods sold with this funeral service are the expressed written warranties, if any,
extended by the manufacturer thereof. The seller extends no other warranties of merchandise fitness for a
particular product. In most areas of the country, state and local law does not require that you buy a container
to surround the casket in the grave. However, many cemeteries require that you have such a container so that
the grave will not sink in. Either a grave liner or a burial vault will satisfy these requirements.
