Pre-Planning: The Time is Now
Many people have started to consider pre-planning their funeral instead of letting their loved ones bear the responsibility. This might seem intimidating, but it’s easy to arrange. Most funeral homes offer comprehensive pre-planning services. They will explain how to make arrangements, provide a cost estimate, keep a record of your preferences, etc. At Weber-Hurd Funeral Home, we are very familiar with the process and will make sure your funeral is carried out according to your wishes. Here are some reasons why you should consider it:
The cost of a funeral can rise over time. What costs $2,000 now might cost $3,000 two years down the line. With pre-planning, you can book the funeral at today’s prices. That will lighten your family’s financial burden and allow them to focus on their grief.
2. Helps family come to terms
Pre-planning gives you the opportunity to discuss death with family. You can explain your wishes and help family reconcile with the possible loss down the line. This is especially helpful for people advanced in age or with serious illnesses.
3. Funeral according to your wishes
Pre-planning ensures your funeral is carried out according to your wishes. If you want a full religious ceremony with a priest of a specific denomination presiding over it, you can arrange it with your funeral home. They will make sure the wishes are carried out.
4. Relief for loved ones
This can be a very turbulent time for your loved ones. Forcing them to make funeral arrangements can derail the grieving process and cause them additional stress. A great way to ensure they don’t experience this additional stress is to plan in advance. All they need to do is inform the funeral home when the time comes.
