Why Should I Plan My Own Funeral?

Issue 30.17

Someone wisely observed that the worst time to plan a funeral is right after someone has died. Dealing with emotions during these dark hours is something best to be avoided. The funeral costs will be higher than if a pre-planned funeral had been put in place years earlier. Also, families may forget or neglect important details.
Pre planning a funeral or a cremation is something that is too easily put off. Once done, you can relax, knowing your plans are in the hands of reliable friends or family.

– Is easy. There’s no health questionnaire or physical exam required. Absolutely everyone can make a pre-plan, and there is no waiting for return documents. The plan is completed, and put on file in our office.- Lets your family clearly know your wishes.

DOES PRE-PLANNING REQUIRE PRE-PAYMENT?
The simple answer is just two letters: No. You can set plan to paper by simply recording your wishes, and leave it for your family to pay for your desired services at the time of your passing.
