Planning Ahead Will Spare Your Family
There are many ways to express your love and concern for your family. One simple way is to plan ahead. Today, many people are showing how much they care by making arrangements for their own funeral in advance.
When no prior plans have been made, the responsibility of funeral arrangements are usually left to family members. They are faced with a strange new responsibility which is overwhelming and confusing if unprepared – even after a long illness. They are forced to make rush decisions during one of the most distressing times of their lives.
Make Your Own Decisions
Your final wishes are guaranteed when you spend a little time making funeral arrangements in advance. You have the advantage of knowing all your personal wishes will be handled. And you have the opportunity to share these decisions with your family. Don’t leave it to them when they are least able to deal with major decisions.
Your loved ones won’t need to ask: Did we do the right thing? Did we spend too much or too little? Is it what he or she wanted? Did we forget anything?
The Choices You Make Today Will Save Your Family Money Tomorrow
Funeral costs have increased steadily with virtually every passing decade. When you pre-arrange, you pay today’s prices and these costs are protected from future increases. There are no hidden costs later, so your family will endure no additional financial burdens. Pre-arranging is the most effective way to guarantee that your death will not place a financial strain on loved ones. And, there are many affordable payment options.
Achieve Peace of Mind
When the time comes, a single call to the funeral home should be all that is needed. Let’s be frank. The idea of preparing for your own funeral may not be one of the most appealing projects you can think of, but it can provide incredible peace of mind knowing that you’ve protected you family emotionally.
A pre-arranged funeral may be the most important supplement insurance you can buy to protect your loved ones from financial burdens. A pre-need plan will also ensure that all your personal desires are handled according to your specific wishes.
Often, close friends are disappointed because so little of their honored friend is reflected in the services and other arrangements. Your funeral should be a reflection of your values and your attitudes. And who better than you can plan something so personal? Don’t put off this important opportunity. It will cost less today, and protect your family tomorrow.
