You may have experienced the loss of a loved one or a special friend. If so, you know firsthand the impact of the stresses and emotions that occur when coping with such a loss. While this experience may still be fresh in your mind, it maybe the time to consider your own plans for the future.
You know what impacted you the most during the funeral service and you may have seen something that you would change with your own arrangements. Pre-planning allows you to do whatever you wish.
Another reason to pre-plan your own funeral is to spare those you love from experiencing the difficult decision-making process at a difficult time. Because there are many decisions that need to be made, it is a good idea to express your preferences about the services and related items you want. Those who care about you won’t have to guess what you would have wanted and regret that they didn’t discuss these matters beforehand.
Keep in mind that funerals are for the living. Pre-arranging gives you the opportunity to discuss your options and desires with those who will be impacted by your plans. This also allows you to incorporate their ideas into your plans and expand your service into something truly meaningful.
When planning your arrangements, you can choose to prepay your funeral expenses. Some of the advantages are: purchasing funeral services at today’s prices and settling the worries of those who may assume responsibility for the debt.
If you wish, you may contact the funeral home with any questions.
