Thinking about death is sometimes an uncomfortable subject to discuss. Nevertheless, funeral pre-planning is a very important topic. Planning a funeral before the need arise is not a new concept, as many have prepared wills, purchased life insurance and some have even selected burial plots. Funeral pre-planning takes it a step further.
There are advantages to pre-planning your arrangements. Pre-planning ensures that your final wishes will be fulfilled. Death is a difficult subject to discuss, and therefore, often times your family may not be aware of your true wishes. By meeting with a funeral director to pre-plan, your final wishes can be executed and fulfilled.
Another advantage is that of financial-benefit. Pre-planning can eliminate the burden that funeral costs might pose on your family. Not to mention that your funeral will cost less now than it would in the future.
Lastly, preplanning provides peace-of-mind for you and your family. Much can be said for knowing that everything has been “taken care of”. It is the best gift you can leave your loved ones.
If you haven’t already done so, we encourage you to consider pre-planning. In addition to all the advantages we’ve mentioned, it’s also an opportunity to personalize your funeral in a way that is your own. For more information on pre-planning, please visit our website: http://phaneuf.net.
