10 Things Everyone Should Know About Planning a Funeral or Memorial Service
A Wise Decision That Shows You Care
No one wants to talk about death or dying. Nor do they want to think about planning for their own funeral.
That’s why we feel it is important to answer some of the more common – and more difficult – questions that people have about funerals and the options available. We also tell you why many people find prearranging their funeral or memorial services is the best decision they can make for themselves and their family.
A Sensible Way to Make Informed Decisions Before Your Time of Need
The death of someone you care for, together with wanting to make the right decision – especially when you have little time to attend to all the details – leaves many families feeling overwhelmed. Often these decisions must be made when a family is grieving and is the least prepared.
Many people have done everything they can to protect their family’s future: invested wisely, opened savings accounts and acquired insurance on their life and home, but they haven’t taken care of their own funeral arrangements – leaving one of the most difficult tasks to their loved ones to figure out at a difficult time. That’s why it’s so important to give serious thought to your personal wishes and to prearrange your services in advance.

The cost to arrange a funeral or cremation service can vary considerably from place to place. Be careful to choose a funeral home that presents its prices clearly and simply.
Unfortunately, funeral and cremation costs are subject to inflation. When you prearrange, you benefit from selecting at today’s prices, free from future inflationary pressures.
Prearranging also give you the opportunity to become informed about your options and their various costs in an unpressured environment. You’re in full control, and you can make objective decisions regarding affordability. You may decide to spend less or more, but the decision remains yours.
Prearranging enables you to keep your financial commitment to a comfortable level while eliminating the future financial burden placed on your surviving family members.
