Today, more individuals and families are making the decision to prearrange their funerals. In a recent survey, these were the most common reasons people gave for prearranging their own funerals:
1) Lets your wishes be known.
2) Reduces stress for friends and family at an already emotional time.
3) Save Money.
4) Guarantees your family will never pay more for your funeral - no matter what happens with inflation.
5) Shows that you care for your family.
6) Relieves your loved ones of the financial responsibility.
The best time to begin making your arrangements is now, while you're thinking about it. While some people in their 40's and 50's may think it's too early to preplan, people who do, say that prearranging their funerals is smart financial planning and gives them peace of mind knowing they aren't leaving this burden to family members.
By taking the time to calmly make choices related to your own funeral arrangements, you'll be protecting your family against stress of having to make these decisions at a emotional time. This way you can choose specific items you want and need...and pay for them now.
To make prearrangements we need to record basic vital statistical information of the individuals the arrangements are for. Such as Full Name, Address, Spouse's Name, Occupation, Birth Date, Birth place, and Mother and Father's Names and Birthplaces.
After we have recorded the basic vital statistical information our funeral directors will go over service options and what you would like for your funeral arrangements. Such as Cremation or Burial, service options, merchandise, and much more.
The first step to take is to either contact us or you can begin your pre-arrangements online through our website.
