Plan for the Day.

Why it makes sense to make choices about your future funeral now.

Planning your funeral in advance makes a difficult time become solely about honoring and celebrating your life. The alternative is often confusion, disagreement and guesswork for family members. So, it’s smart to make these choices now. By doing this, your loved ones will be spared many difficult decisions at a time of emotional distress.

The benefits to your family will be real and appreciated, ranging from spiritual preference specifics to financial assistance. From selecting an ideal permanent memorial, to designing the service, to paying in advance, you can make the arrangements as you see fit. And your loved ones will have peace of mind knowing they are fulfilling your wishes. Keep reading to learn more.

Family matters.

Your family is everything. So the last thing you would want is to put them in a difficult position. A time of loss is a time of confusion, but your final arrangements don’t have to add to the uncertainty. Pre-planning your funeral services removes any doubt about your end-of-life wishes and saves your loved ones from having to make decisions when they’re grieving. Making pre-arrangements is a caring and thoughtful thing to do. Instead of getting bogged down in details, your family will be able to focus on celebrating your life.

Personal service.

Funeral and burial services are an important part of the grieving process. For a lot of people, they provide a sense of closure. So the right kind of ceremony is essential. But it’s difficult to make the service as meaningful as it should be, in such a short amount of time. By making those plans now, including choosing songs and selecting readings, the service will reflect how you would like to be remembered, by everyone you love. In addition, you can design a beautiful permanent memorial. That way, your family will have a dedicated place to visit, honor and remember you.

Financial relief.

Funeral services are often an unexpected expense. But they don’t have to be. You can choose to fund your pre-arranged plans now, and the costs will be locked in for the future, even if prices for various services and products increase. You don’t have to pre-pay if you pre-plan, but it is the best way to take the financial burden off your family. So it’s definitely a smart option to consider. Also, please know that your payments and plans can be adjusted later, should your wishes change over time. So there’s nothing to regret by going through the process now. Your decisions don’t have to be final.
