Why should I plan a funeral for myself or a loved one? A funeral or memorial service is a customary way to recognize death and its finality. These services are held for the living to show respect for the deceased and to help survivors begin the grief process. They also give mourners a chance to share stories, create memories, fulfill religious beliefs and customs, participate in a support system, and gather at a peaceful place during a time of grief, confusion and uncertainty. For many, it feels like there are an overwhelming amount of things to think about! But in reality, taking control of the important things in life just feels good.
What tasks are involved in arranging a funeral? In most cases there can be as many as 100-150 tasks when planning a funeral. The key to remember is to prepare! Laying the foundation for a well thought out plan for you or a loved one takes a bit of time, but, its worth every moment spent. When it’s all said and done, you’ll have the peace-of-mind preparedness brings! Here’s what to do to get started:
Does Pre-planning Require Pre-payment? The simple answer is NO. You can set plan to paper by simply recording your wishes, and leave it for your family to pay for your desired services at the time of your passing. Or, you can protect you and your family from inflation, by pre-funding your plan. This ensures your expenses will be covered when you need them to be. It will more importantly spare your family the emotional and financial burden associated with funeral expenses. We offer up to three years of interest-free financing for cremation pre-arrangements and up to five years of interest-free financing for funeral pre-arrangements. Please call 719-634-1597 for more information regarding our credit policy.
