When a loved one dies “we give voice to sorrow, thank God for our loved one, and entrust this companion of ours into the hands of God. . . [We] trust in God’s promise in baptism that we are claimed by Christ forever. . .” Evangelical Lutheran Worship 

A Christian who thinks ahead about these things has an opportunity to MAKE A GIFT OF KINDNESS TO FAMILY AND CHURCH by expressing desires and preferences, and to make a significant witness to Jesus Christ by selecting hymns and Bible readings to be used at the service.
