Pre-planning a Funeral

What a wonderful gift to the ones you love. I’ve spent years watching grieving families go through the emotionally draining experience of trying to figure out what mom or dad would have wanted at their funeral. That’s why I can sincerely say it is a great gift to the people you love to plan your own funeral. And while I’ve heard many people say with anguish, “I wish we knew what Mom wanted,” I’ve never heard anyone say, “Gee, I wish Mom hadn’t helped us.”

How To Pre-Plan Your Funeral

Pre-planning your funeral will make certain that your choices are respected and carried out, without leaving your family to wonder what your wishes might have been. You also have the option of paying for your funeral in advance. This locks in the cost of the funeral at today’s prices.

Practical Information For Your Survivors

In addition to pre-planning your funeral, completing a Personal Information Form and giving a copy to your estate trustee, spouse and children will give you the peace of mind of knowing they will have all the information they need to properly handle your wishes and the details of your estate. Don’t put this form in your safety deposit box as these can be sealed until after the funeral.
