Quickly! You need to have your ducks in a row as you will be working against Mother Nature. Techni Ice cooler sheets are the best bet for easily keeping a body cool for an extended period of time. Open the windows in the room you are keeping your loved one and if the weather is warm turn on fans or air conditioning. Another option for people interested in having a home funeral, but who are unable to properly care for the body for an extended period, may be to consider having a funeral home come pick up your loved one and bring them into refrigeration until you are ready for your service or wake. There are so many ways to do things. I remind families that this is their loved one, we are here to help honor your wishes, whatever they might be.
