• Pre-planning, when done properly, can give you peace of mind because you know that your arrangements are ready and pre-funded. By pre-planning your funeral, you can:
  • Make all the arrangements during a time of peace and not leave them to your family during their time of grief;
  • Make your wishes known;
  • Control the cost of your funeral and protect from inflation;
  • Ensure that personal records are organized and easy for your survivors to locate;
  • Protect your insurance so that it provides for your survivors and not for funeral expenses; and
  • Provide protection in case the need arises before it is expected.

Why Pre-Plan Funeral Services? No one likes to think about death, let alone plan for it. In many families, discussing one's mortality is an extremely uncomfortable topic. But it is a topic that should be discussed and planned for well in advance of your death.

 

By pre-planning your funeral, you relieve your family of having to make important financial decisions during a period of great stress and grief-a time when people aren't thinking very clearly and may not know what to do because you never made your wishes known.

 

It's easy to say, "Don't make a fuss. I don't want a ceremony. Just bury me and be done with it." But it is important to realize that the ritual of a funeral and/or memorial service isn't for the deceased but for the living. It is a time when friends and family can gather together to grieve openly and to provide support for one another.
