Before Your Time of Need
Taking the time to make important decisions about your funeral in advance may be one of the most considerate things you can do for your loved ones. Nothing else can do as much to ease their minds, spare them emotional and financial stress or comfort them in their time of greatest grief. Pre-arrangement also may be the best choice if you have very specific preferences for your funeral or if no one else is capable of making responsible decisions.
How Pre-Arrangement Works
To pre-arrange your funeral, your funeral director will meet with you at a convenient time, explain all of your options and carefully record your selections and obituary information. You may choose everything you want for your funeral: type of service, casket, burial vault, urn, etc. The costs of all of your options are shown in an itemized pricing guide. Once you have made your selections, your funeral director will explain all payment options available to you and keep your pre-arrangement plans on file until your time of need.
Benefits of Pre-Arrangement
- Make your decisions ahead of time in an unhurried, calm and well-informed fashion.
- Loved ones will know and understand your wishes, so no one will have to guess or disagree about your preferences.
- You relieve your loved ones of future financial responsibility or spare them from emotional overspending due to grief or guilt at their time of loss.
- Above all, you have the peace of mind of knowing that your funeral is already planned and the financial component has been addressed.
