We all plan ahead for the important events in our life—from college and weddings to vacations and birthdays to moving and retirement. So, why wouldn’t you plan ahead for your own funeral? Don’t leave this responsibility behind for your loved ones to handle. Start planning for this important event today.
There are several benefits to planning ahead. Here are just a few:
You Can Choose the Way You'll be Remembered
Have you given any thought as to how you want to be remembered? Maybe you had a long career in the military that you'd like to celebrate. Maybe you love animals and would like to encourage donations in your memory to your local humane society. When you make funeral pre-arrangements, you put your wishes on paper so that your loved ones will know exactly how to celebrate your life and honor your memory.
You’ll Make it Easier on Your Loved Ones
Did you know that there are more than 70 details that need to be tended to in the first 24 hours after a death? Are your loved ones ready for all that responsibility?
When you pre-arrange, you make those first 24 hours easier for your loved ones. The stress of making last-minute funeral arrangements often causes people much stress. By taking care of the arrangements ahead of time, your family won’t have to wonder if they did what you would have wanted.
You’ll Empower Your Family
Decisions made together are better than decisions made separately. Your family will know exactly what needs to be done. That’s because you’ve taken all of the guess work out of planning your funeral. When you pre plan your funeral, everyone benefits. You know that your wishes will be carried out and your loved ones know exactly how to honor you.
