When a loved one dies, many of us are overwhelmed and don’t know what to do or who to call. Most of us have never thought about what we would do if a loved one dies or what kind of a service we would like to have. Pre-planning a funeral, or choosing a funeral home, is something that is important to consider.
Though families may find the topic difficult to discuss, the preplanning of funeral arrangements ensures that a person’s wishes are met while reducing the emotional stress to the survivors of being unsure of what the deceased wishes were. We will work with you to design the best possible service according to your wishes, without obligation to purchase unneeded goods or services. You can take the time to consider the options, instead of having to make on-the-spot decisions.
Pre-planning can be as simple as the name of a preferred funeral home, or as detailed as pre-selecting and pre-paying for all of the arrangements. This can be done at any time, but is most often done in conjunction with preparation of other financial and legal documents, such as wills or powers of attorney. These arrangements can be changed if an individual’s plans are altered by the passage of time or life events.
Pre-planning a funeral is something that everyone can and should do for peace of mind for yourselves and your survivors.
