Planning ahead is something everyone should do. It paints a clear picture of your final disposition, eliminates confusion and uncertainty. While no one enjoys thinking about their own mortality, a certain peace of mind is presented when a funeral is preplanned.
It’s an empowering experience that will spare your survivors of the burden of having to make difficult decisions and incurring expenses on your behalf. Particularly at a time of such grief.
End-of-life decisions such as life support, organ donation and cremation or burial, are decisions that can tear families apart at a time when everyone is most vulnerable. By planning ahead, you create some form of certainty for you and your family. It allows you to make the above decisions, set aside funds for the funeral or pre-pay part or all of the funeral in advance. You can provide instructions on the type of service you wish to have, your coffin or casket selection, music style and songs and of course the finer details of the funeral service.
Speaking with a funeral director about preplanning is one of the best decisions you can make in the interest of your loved ones. Contact a funeral director today.
