Regardless of your background,
accomplishments, or character, death is unfortunately inevitable for all
people. You may not necessarily wish to think about death, but sooner or
later, it will somehow affect you. Whether you are faced with the death of a
loved or are thinking about your own departure from this world, All Peoples’
Funeral Home can be an invaluable resource. Deborah Ali-Williams, president
and funeral director at All Peoples’, and the rest of her team are there to
make a celebration of life less stressful and more meaningful for families
left to mourn.

Making a
Positive First Impression

After helping thousands of families, Deborah
understands the feelings of despair, shock, disbelief, and even numbness that
can follow the death of a loved one. As a result, she and her experienced
team approach each celebration of life with great care, integrity, and
respect. They gently guide surviving families through a variety of options to
remember their departed loved one. When families first visit All Peoples’
Funeral Home, they are immediately surrounded by the beautiful space and an
atmosphere of care and love, the perfect setting to memorialize a departed
family member or friend.

Personalizing
a Celebration of Life

For some mourning families, funerals are a
solemn occasion to process grief. For others, they want to celebrate the
positive aspects of their loved one’s life and impact. At All Peoples’
Funeral Home, there is no right or wrong way to honor the
deceased.

In fact, on one occasion, the family wanted
to set up a carnival-themed event in the cemetery for a child. Deborah says,
“Each celebration of life can be a unique way to come together and pay
tribute to the person.” On the other hand, some families want a more
traditional service.

For her mother’s celebration of life, Lora
Gilreath appreciated the attention to little personalized details her
mother’s service received. She says, “All Peoples’ took special care of mom
down to the finest details, like making sure her nails were manicured and
polished with her favorite color and asking us about her favorite fragrance.
They treated my mother and the family with respect and
dignity.”

Regardless of the tone you want to have, All
Peoples’ Funeral Home can help you make every detail perfect. “We can offer
you a beautiful space to join with family and friends in grief, comfort, and
love,” says Deborah.

Processing
Grief

Whether your loved one’s passing is somewhat
expected, or you’re taken completely by surprise, grief can be difficult to
deal with, especially so soon afterward. Deborah knows from personal
experience with her own family passings that the grieving process usually
doesn’t end with a funeral, however celebrating a loved one’s life provides
an important step towards healing. She says, “Grief is very real, and I want
to help people honor their unique grief and begin to understand how to mend
their hearts.”

Bereaved son Nathan Maxey adds, “The death of
my mother has shattered my heart but some of the pieces have been restored
thanks to APFH and the great work they provided to ensure my mother was
smiling from heaven.”

Planning
Ahead

No one enjoys thinking about the inevitable
end of their own life, but making advanced arrangements can be one of the
kindest things you can do for your loved ones. Instead of having to make
decisions about a service during this time of immense grief, your family and
friends can focus on honoring and grieving your passing. Deborah says, “When
you prearrange, you make those first 24 hours so much easier for your loved
ones.”

During this vulnerable time, people can make
unnecessary purchases, which means that taking care of your final wishes in
advance can help your family save significantly. You can also spare them from
the stress of choosing specific details of your funeral without knowing your
wishes.

Thinking about her own funeral service
someday in the future, Deborah has quite the production in mind. She says,
“We’re going to roll out the red carpet. It’s definitely going to be a
Celebration of Life!”

Although death isn’t a light or pleasant
topic to consider, it’s important to look ahead and potentially make plans
for your eventual passing.

Guiding
Families Through Deaths

Funeral arrangements aren’t the only concerns
bereaved families face when a loved one dies. In addition to mountains of
paperwork to file, there are many unknowns for most people who are unfamiliar
with what they need to do. The team at All Peoples’ Funeral Home will walk
you through all the steps you need to take. In addition, they can stay
connected with you with uplifting grief thoughts of the day, set up
counseling, help publish obituaries, provide advice for how to talk about
death with children, and more.

Building on
a Legacy of Making a Difference

When she was younger, Deborah wanted to
become a police officer to fulfill her passion for helping others. However,
she realized the impact she could have when her father, who worked at
Sheffield Funeral Home, told her a story about a family who had been
devastated after a tragic accident claimed a loved one. Through his stunning
restorative art skills, the family was able to view the departed person one
last time, allowing them to say goodbye. Deborah knew then that she could
make a difference in this unique way.

funeral homes, eventually attending the Commonwealth Institute of Funeral
Service in 1993 for advanced professional training.
