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.

OUR 10TH ANNUAL HOLIDAY REMEMBRANCE SERVICE WAS A SPECIAL NIGHT

All of our Holiday Remembrance Services have found a personality of their own and they really are all very special. The theme this year was “Gratefulness”, and hundreds of people came and truly live up to that theme. You could absolutely see it, hear it and feel it; from the music, to the wonderful talk from Fr. Hector, the memorial pictures, all the way through to the fellowship of everyone in attendance, who together provided comfort and gracious memories. We’re very pleased to be able to host this service each year for the families we serve and all those who come to attend, share and provide comfort .
Enjoy our short video of the highlights:

We invite you to our 2019 Holiday Luminary Service on December 7

One of the most difficult things for many people is to experience the holidays after the loss of a loved one. Our annual Holiday Luminary is a very special opportunity to come together as a community to experience celebrating the lives of loved ones together. We’re sharing a video from last year’s Service to give you an opportunity to witness what it’s like beforehand.

We’ve chosen the first Saturday of December for our Holiday Luminary Service to gather early in this Special Season and share loving remembrance of our families and friends. As you’ll see in our video, it’s an uplifting experience for everyone who attends. Remembering is a very important part of the process of losing someone close. Doing so in a community of people who have so much in common with your feelings takes away a little bit of the sense of dealing with this alone. This year’s theme is “Gratefulness”.

Our Holiday Luminary Service means a great deal to our Glueckert Family too. We celebrate the lives of people we’ve lost from within our immediate family and friends along with you, as well as the entire community we have served over generations who have truly become part of our greater family.

Please Join Us. We would love to see you and remember, love and be grateful for all those we’ve loved ❤️

The Greatest Benefit of Pre-Planning Is To Start The Dialogue

Those are the words of a very experienced Funeral Director, Chris Mayer of Glueckert Funeral Home. By starting the dialogue, people and families have all of the options that are available to them. From there, families can decide what options they desire, and how they would like their arrangements to be carried out.
In the Financial Planning space, Pre-Planning is becoming an important component of the process for people from a financial perspective, but even more important, this is removing a burden from loved ones who have absolutely certain information on file as to what their loved one desired. The important issues and choices were made by the person who mattered most.
At Glueckert Funeral Home, you are always welcome to a complimentary, and no obligation consultation with Chris Mayer, or any of our Professional Funeral Directors about Pre-Planning or At-Need Arrangements. We’re always here.

Feel free to contact us at 847.253.0168 or www.glueckertfuneral.com. Our promise is to be there for you.

Opioid Awareness is saving lives. Purple lights lit the sky in Arlington Heights.


 

Saturday August 31, a vigil for victims of Accidental Opioid overdoses took place at Glueckert Funeral Home. With their Sponsoring Partner Live4Lali, the vigil capped off a week of awareness events and Naloxone training sessions. This event, and events like these across the state have had a very positive impact and the number of accidental deaths from Opioid Overdoses has begun to decline. Even one is too many! We need the purple light to continue to shine brightly in our young people with so much to give. We’re dedicated to continuing to spread this awareness until the day when there is no need to have a vigil for who we’ve lost. Instead, we can focus and celebrate who we’ve saved!
