Benefits of Pre-Planning
There are almost more benefits to funeral pre-planning than we can count. Here are just a few:
You Can Choose the Way You'll be Remembered
Have you given any thought as to how you want to be remembered? Maybe you had a long career in the military that you'd like to celebrate. Maybe you love animals and would like to encourage donations in your memory to your local humane society. When you make funeral pre-arrangements, you put your wishes on paper so that your loved ones will know exactly how to celebrate your life and honour your memory.
You’ll Make it Easier on Your Loved Ones
Did you know that there are more than 70 details that need to be tended to in the first 24 hours after a death? Are your loved ones ready for all that responsibility?
When you pre-arrange, you make those first 24 hours easier for your loved ones. You can also save them money. The stress of making last-minute funeral arrangements often causes people to make unnecessary purchases. By taking care of the arrangements yourself, you free them from spending more than they need too.
You Can Protect Yourself and Your Family from Rising Funeral Costs
Like most things, funeral costs tend to rise every year. That means that a funeral today will probably cost less than the same funeral three or four years from now. Paying for your funeral now can save your loved ones money. If you’d like to explore the subject of locking in funeral costs, please call us.
You’ll Empower Your Family
They will know exactly what needs to be done. That’s because you’ve taken all of the guess work out of planning your funeral. When you pre-arrange your funeral, everyone benefits. You know that your wishes will be carried out and your loved ones know exactly how to honour you.
