No one likes to think of a loved one passing away. Sadly, it does happen. Sometimes the person is quite ill and it is not a surprise that they pass away. Other times it takes us quite by surprise and is very unexpected. No matter who passes away or when it happens, they are always too young and it is always too soon.
One of the biggest challenges that most families face is that during your time of grief, you are also faced with a tremendous amount of bills to pay. A typical funeral in the USA costs between $6,000 to $10,000. But there are many expenses related to a funeral that are just as important that sometimes we don’t think of until they come up. It can be hard when you feel like your budget just will not budge any further. Fortunately there are payday loans, to help you with the much needed money to get through until the next payday period.
You can pay for travel to a funeral, to pay for your respects. If your aunt or cousin passes away and they are a few states away, then we know you will want to go be with family. But if you do not get paid for another week or so, it can be hard to come up with the money for a train or bus ticket. That payday loan can help make it possible for you to be there, to give everyone a big hug and kiss and to pay your respects. To show everyone just how much you care. This is a time when you’ll want to gather together as a family, to share stories about the loved one and to think about the special times that you shared together.
Pay for someone else’s travel, so they can attend a loved one’s funeral. This is quite often something that can come up, that many families do not think about until they are faced with it. Sometimes you have a family member who is on an even tighter budget than you are – perhaps they are retired, unemployed or disabled. To travel for the funeral and pay for it would be a great hardship for them. So you get a payday loan to help make it possible for them to have a train or bus ticket to go be with family during this important time. Because that is part of gathering together, to make sure that everyone is together and feeling connected. Everyone should feel like they are part of the family.
Have a lovely reception after the funeral. This is a tradition for many, to host a reception at the home for people who have attended the funeral. This is a time when family, friends and other loved ones can come together and share stories about the person who has passed away. This is actually quite important to the grieving process. It can help many people express their love of the person and to feel connected to others who cared for that person in the same way. But paying for a reception can usually cost several hundred dollars. If you are between paychecks, then a payday loan is an excellent option. Get one so you can welcome mourners into your home after the funeral.
Get flowers professionally done for the funeral. Most people love to have flowers at the funeral. They may have a special arrangement placed at the grave just following the burial. They will likely also have floral arrangements in the ceremony area. Flowers are often chosen, that the person who passed away especially liked. They express the person’s personality and spirit. This is a lovely thing to do that will make the atmosphere at the funeral quite welcoming and aesthetically pleasing to everyone. Most people like to see flowers because they are beautiful.
Pay to have a religious leader performing the service. For many, this is a very important part of a funeral. Or even if it is not a religious leader, they will want someone to perform a non-religious service that everyone can attend. Your payday loan can help make this a lot easier. Some places request a deposit when you would like someone to perform a ceremony, so simply having money quickly can help you to leave the deposit.
