Presentations by Roper and Sons Funeral Home

In addition to hosting various events at Roper and Sons Funeral Home, our Outreach Coordinator, Jodi Freeman, is available to speak to your group or organization at no cost.  Available topics include:

Who Gets Grandma's Yellow Pie Plate - Every family has treasures, some with financial value, some with sentimental value, and some with both.  Learn how to distribute those treasures among family members, or dispense of them altogether during life's transitions.

Positively Positive - How many people do you know who have "Eeyore Syndrome" - only focused on doom and gloom? Are you surrounding yourself with positive energy or negative?  Learn how you can start becoming more positive, and attracting positive energy into your life in a few simple steps. 

It's All About Me - Have you ever left a funeral and thought "that could be anyone"?  Your service is the last chance your loved ones have to say goodbye, and to remember you for the life you lived.  Your celebration should be just that - a celebration of YOU.  Learn how to can plan a personalized, individual celebration of life that means something to those you love.

Have the Talk of a LifetimeSitting down with our loved ones to talk about their lives can be rich and satisfying.  Learning about memorable events and people, places and favorite activities, values and lessons learned can help bring us closer to those we care about most.  Learn how to open the doors to having the Talk of a Lifetime!

Time Management vs. Energy Management - We often talk about managing our time, about multitasking, and about being "too busy".  Have you ever considered that energy management - conserving our energy and working more efficiently can have an important impact on the time we spend on tasks?  Learn how managing your day by managing energy can help you to be more efficient.

Treasures:  "Treasures" is combination of two very popular topics, “Who Gets Grandma’s Yellow Pie Plate” and “Have the Talk of a Lifetime”.  It is important to maintain and even repair family relationships during times of crisis, and to make a concerted effort to be remembered in the way YOU wish to be remembered.  With an emphasis on communication, learn some steps that can bring a sense of peace and calm to a naturally emotional time.

The Importance of Planning:  You plan all of your major life events, from your education to your marriage.  Shouldn't your final farewell be carefully planned as well?  From providing all of the important information needed to arrange your services and file legal documents to the way you wish to be remembered, planning ahead can save your family significant financial, time, and emotional burdens. This topic is especially pertinent for younger audiences who have never considered end of life needs.

Five Wishes - Five Wishes helps you learn how to express your wishes if you are seriously ill and unable to speak for yourself.  It brings tremendous peace of mind knowing your wishes will be honored.  Five Wishes is a blueprint for legal, medical, spiritual, and personal decisions, allowing you to describe what good care means to you, and helps potential caregivers know exactly what you want.  Offered in partnership with an attorney and personal caregivers, this topic offers first hand insight and information about end-of-life planning.

Peace of  Mind (in partnership with our Family Service Counselors) - Learn how planning ahead for your final wishes will shield your family from unnecessary emotional and financial burden.
