Can I plan my service in advance?
Planning anything in advance has its rewards, whether it’s saving for a child’s college tuition or contributing to your retirement program. The same is true with making your funeral or cemetery plans in advance—it brings a sense of accomplishment and peace.
So where do you start? Begin with the basics. Visualize how you’d like to be remembered. The time to do this is now, when you can calmly and thoughtfully consider what is important to you. If you have specific passions or hobbies, think about how you can highlight them in your tribute. If gardening is something you love, consider an outdoor service resplendent with flowers—perhaps a beautiful floral trellis for guests to walk through. When you plan ahead, highly personal details like custom seed packets for guest mementos are entirely possible.
One of the most compelling reasons to pre-plan is how it can alleviate the future stress of those you love having to second-guess what you would have wanted. Knowing that you’ve outlined your desires can give your loved ones tremendous peace of mind. There’s no time like the present, so get started today.
