The Most Difficult Time to Decide
The death of someone you care for, including your desire to make the right decisions and a limited amount of time to focus on all the details, leaves many families simply feeling overwhelmed. There are numerous decisions to be made. That is why it is important to give consideration to what you would like in the event of your death and to pre-arrange your funeral or cremation service.
Time to Decide
When you pre-arrange your funeral, you give yourself plenty of time to make the necessary arrangements. Would you like a traditional funeral or a simple or less elaborate service? Do you want to be cremated or buried? Would you like the service in a funeral home, your private home, or at a place of worship? Will it be a private service or open to all? What type of casket/container would you prefer? Would you like an open or closed casket? Will there be visitation for family and friends or a private family viewing? How much would you like to pay for your services? What type of permanent memorial would you prefer? These are personal decisions which only you can make but pre-arranging your funeral is a decision that affects the people you love most.
Protection Against Rising Cost
It also makes financial sense to pre-arrange your funeral. When you pre-arrange your funeral, you benefit from purchasing at today’s prices, free from inflationary pressures of the future. Once you have determined the cause, you can make an objective decision based on affordability. You may decide to spend less as a result of this objectivity. Pre-arranging also enables you to purchase the services you select in a planned and manageable fashion. Apart from helping to keep your financial burden to a minimum, it also eliminates the financial burden placed on surviving family members.
It’s Your Decision
Pre-arranging your funeral is a decision only you can make. But it is a decision that affects the people you love most.
