To help relieve their families from stress at an already stressful time, an increasing number of people are planning their own funerals and designating their funeral preferences — sometimes paying for them in advance.
It does not have to be a complicated process. In fact, many funeral providers have created preplanning guides that allow clients to document important details and wishes. Some providers offer online webinars to inform viewers of the options they have to preplan arrangements from the comfort of their homes.
Preplanning will provide comfort to your loved ones and give them the confidence that comes from knowing they are honoring your wishes and following through with your plans exactly as you wanted.
Be sure to tell your family about the plans you’ve made, including if you have prepaid. Preplanning your cemetery and funeral needs will make a difficult time just a bit easier for your family. Do it for yourself; do it for your family.
