Prepare & Plan Today for Your Funeral Arrangements

Senior Couple planning on serious matters

Today you have time . . . time to plan, to prepare, and to make decisions about what you want for your final arrangements. Perhaps you wish to discuss your ideas with your family, or you may feel strongly about making these decisions all on your own. Whatever your situation, you will be able to create your plan down to the smallest detail without pressure or emotional stress.

With dozens of decisions surrounding end-of-life arrangements, grieving family members are often confused and upset. Here are just a few of the questions and issues to be dealt with at the time of death:

  • Do we choose cremation or a traditional burial?
  • Did our loved one wish to donate organs, tissue, or his or her body to science?
  • Who will plan the service and oversee all the details?
  • Will this be a religious, fraternal, or military service?
  • Do we need a cemetery plot or place for cremains?
  • Should we have a site marker or monument?
  • What specific customs, readings, or music should be performed?
  • Is there any particular clothing or jewelry in which to bury our loved one?
  • Is there any insurance or death benefit? Who pays for what?

Pre-planning your final arrangements answers many of these types of questions for distressed family members, at a time when they feel most vulnerable and prone to making regrettable choices.
