Glueckert Funeral Home | Remembrance Candlelight Service – 2020

OUR HOLIDAY REMEMBRANCE CANDLELIGHT SERVICE CONTINUES IN 2020

Celebrating our traditions and rites during COVID-19 has been challenging; but we’re taking the difficult JOURNEY together to honor our most beloved who have departed.

Holiday Remembrance Continues at Glueckert Funeral Home

Arlington Heights Family-Owned Business Eases Season for Those Who Have Lost Loved Ones with Virtual Memorial December 5 at 4 p.m. (Central)

In a year of many cancellations, the easy thing for the owners and management at Glueckert Funeral Home in Arlington Heights would have been to call off the annual candlelight remembrance service in light of coronavirus restrictions.

Grief, however, does not take a holiday even during a pandemic, and the Glueckert staff understands that the funeral home’s annual Holiday Luminary Remembrance Service helps make the yearly “season of joy” a little less painful for those who are grieving.

“This has been a tough year emotionally for people. There’s been nothing but loss,” said Matthew Bennett, the funeral home’s manager. “Hopefully this can be a silver lining.”

The service, normally attended by as many as 400 people will leverage the power of internet livestreaming to welcome an infinite number of people to gather for poems, prayers, short messages from local pastors, and testimonials from families sharing their reflections and memories. Over 70 families have already submitted photos of their loved ones who passed this year for the memorial tribute.

Celebrating our traditions and rites during COVID-19 has been challenging; but Glueckert Funeral Home welcomes all to join together to honor our beloved departed. As in the past, this service is intended to bring comfort to families during the holiday season, always especially difficult when a dear one has departed.

All are invited to view the online service on Saturday, December 5, 2020 at 4 p.m. (Central) as they stay home and stay safe. The streamed video will remain online at GlueckertFuneralHome.com throughout the month of December.

Cremation is a Choice That Offers a Host of Other Choices

Glueckert Funeral Home Manager Matthew Bennett works hard and takes the extra effort with families to make sure they know that all of their choices for funeral arrangements offer a host of opportunities for families to take advantage of when they lay their loved one to rest. Matt’s personal belief through his experience is that many in the funeral industry have not given families all of the options available to them.

For instance, at Glueckert, families may take advantage of an Urn Carrying device (one he created) to allow for 4 pallbearers to serve and accept the honor of escorting your loved one into a place of worship and/or to the cemetery. Cremation is a “disposition” that can be somewhat temporary by nature. Families often follow the wishes of their loved ones in where the remains ultimately rest;  a crypt, a niche at a cemetery, buried or scattered. Matt offers some very helpful advice and a written instrument the Glueckert Family uses to make it easier for families and ensure the deceased member’s final wishes for disposition is carried out according to their wishes. He explains why it’s important to have these discussions and have them recorded officially. The comfort families feel knowing precisely what was desired not only avoids confusion, it offers a family a sense of certainty they have done everything they could do to honor their loved one.

At Glueckert Funeral Home, you are always welcome to a complimentary, no obligation consultation about Pre-Planning or At-Need Arrangements. We’re always here. You may contact us at 847.253.0168 or www.glueckertfuneral.com. Our promise is to be there for you.
