Death, is often shocking because it happens without us knowing when or how it occurs. While we cannot control the manner of one’s passing, we can decide how we want to be remembered.
Planning your own funeral or memorial service can provide peace-of-mind to you and your family. In fact, planning ahead for your final arrangements means that your loved ones will have less difficult and complicated decisions to make during a difficult emotional time.
Pre-planning eases the burdens on your loved ones. Details like the model of caskets to be used, burials or cremation or even the types of ceremony can be potential causes of disagreements when there is no plan to follow.
If your wishes are made known, your loved ones benefit from being able to give you a proper send-off. This also helps them psychologically by allowing them a sense of closure and begin the healing process.
Pre-planning also enables you to make financial arrangements to cover the costs of the funeral instead of the potential escalating funeral costs. This allows you to control the costs better and prevent your loved ones from incurring additional costs at the time of funeral.
Essentially, pre-planning is a thoughtful and caring action for your family. It is comforting to know that you’ve covered your bases without your loved ones having to deal with the stress of making these decisions and will instead, be able to focus fully on giving you a proper send-off.
