Experience has shown us that preplanning is one way to make comfortable choices without the pressure and grief of an emergency situation. It is something that no one likes to think about but this overwhelming burden on family members can be alleviated by planning your funeral or cremation services in advance.
Like any transaction, it is important for you to become informed about your options and their various costs when you are in a rational state of mind. It enables you to be in control and to select funeral services that have meaning to you and your family.
Pre-arranging really benefits survivors the most. You can discuss what you would like in the event of your death with other family members. Involving those most affected by your death can bring peace of mind and relief to the individuals who will have to carry out your wishes. Pre-arranging relieves family members of the psychological burden and guesswork in trying to make decisions. More importantly, knowing your wishes and carrying them out can bring great comfort to surviving family members and friends.
Our role in pre-planning is to serve as a guide or facilitator, helping to explain all options. Meeting with one of our pre-planning counselors is the most effective way to begin this important process. We will gladly discuss choices, explain costs and answer questions at the funeral home or if preferred, in the comfort of your home.
We can also provide you a copy of our helpful planning guide “Guidelines for Putting My House In Order”.
When it comes to your final arrangements, shouldn't you make the decisions? The arrangements you make will reflect your exact wishes and desires. Pre-arranging your own service will help to ease the burden of your loved ones. It will also alleviate any questions, problems or differences, which can occur among family members.
