Time To Plan Ahead

The time leading up to a new year is always a great opportunity to set goals and make plans. Add funeral preplanning to your to-do list now and start out 2023 with peace of mind knowing everything is taken care of. Our funeral professionals are sharing a few reasons preplanning is even more important and simple than you think:

Your loved ones need your help. Arranging your funeral in advance enables you to consider your personal preferences and make your own unique choices, but it also eliminates the decision-making burden for your family. Preplanning is one of the best gifts you can give loved ones to ensure they will not be faced with such a heavy responsibility at an already emotionally overwhelming time. This allows them to focus on their journey through grief.

Death has no schedule. Adults of all ages benefit from the immense value of having funeral plans in place. In fact, it is a growing trend among younger individuals who want to adequately prepare for their futures and for retirement, part of which includes putting final wishes in writing and proactively factoring in the financial aspects. Our Advance Funeral Planners can help you estimate costs and set aside funds in a portable funeral trust, which is not considered an asset.

Preplanning meetings are stress free. A prearrangement conference involves a friendly conversation with a specialist who can guide you through the many options and help you properly record your wishes. The decisions made during preplanning can be altered at any time.

Cross this task off your list and give us a call to set up a preplanning meeting today. You can also learn more about making arrangements in advance by visiting our funeral home websites. See our ad on this page for our contact information.
