By Pre-Planning your own funeral you will spare your loved ones the overwhelming burden and expense that often comes with making funeral arrangements.
No one wants to think about their death any sooner than they must, but planning your funeral services in advance ( “preplanning” or “prearranging,”) is a responsible, and thoughtful gesture for your grieving loved ones. It’s easy to understand how making decisions now about your final arrangements can help assure those left behind that your wishes are being honored.
Take responsibility for your arrangements.
Just as estate planning and creating a will are responsible actions, planning your final arrangements in advance makes emotional and financial sense and protects your loved ones from the burden of planning services for you.
Eliminate guesswork for your family.
When you make your cemetery arrangements in advance, you’ll help alleviate your family’s burden of making difficult decisions at what will be an already difficult time. With your wishes recorded, they won’t be left to guess what you would have wanted.
Personalize your service.
Making your final arrangements in advance allows you to influence the personal details that are important to you. Celebrate your life, your way. Consulting with a professional funeral reception and Celebration of Life planning team like LifeStory Occasions can ensure you have the celebration that truly reflects you.
Find the value and quality you want.
Investigating different cemeteries is an important part of making final arrangements. Comparison shopping allows you to find the value and quality of service that’s right for you.
Whether you simply want to ensure that your wishes are carried out, or you want to protect your family from making difficult decisions at a time of loss, planning your final arrangements in advance is an important responsibility, and one of the greatest gifts you can give your loved ones.
