When a loved one dies, many family members and friends come to pay their respects. Some people have more acquaintances than others, which can lead to large amounts of people at the funeral home at one time. It’s hard to process the death of a loved one and attend to all the visitors if there’s not a lot of space. It can also be uncomfortable for guests if there is no room to move around or sit for the duration of the service. Our funeral homes in Reading, PA are large enough to accommodate a lot of guests at one time.
At Whelan Schwartz Funeral Home, we make sure our guests are comfortable and have plenty of room for visitors paying their respects, flowers and other special gifts sent to the family, and any refreshments. We have plenty of chairs and seating areas and guests can move around and even walk outside if desired. We offer comfortable seating, clean restrooms, and open areas for standing and socializing. We understand that it’s a little either to grieve when you are surrounded by loved ones and we want you to be able to invite as many people as you want to the service.
There are a lot of things to take into consideration when planning the perfect funeral for a loved one or yourself. One of those things is the size of the facility. We have all been to funerals where the line is out the door and there are people standing outside because there’s no room inside. That’s a good thing because it shows that the deceased was loved and had many friends. If you want to make those who attend the funeral more comfortable and give everyone a chance to pay their respects, it’s best to choose a funeral home that has plenty of room.
We have a large lobby where family members can gather to talk and remember their loved ones. We also have a separate room for the memorial service. Our chairs are sturdy and have thick padding to keep guests comfortable. We set everything up before the funeral service and make sure the rows are spaced properly and everyone has plenty of room. We also keep the aisles open because we understand that some guests may need to leave and return during the ceremony to use the bathroom or gather themselves emotionally. We want them to be able to do so without causing any interruptions or drawing unwanted attention to themselves.
If you have a certain setup you prefer, we can cater to your needs. We want you to be happy with the ceremony and to take full advantage of our spacious funeral facilities.
