Thinking or talking about one’s death is not a pleasant subject for most people. However, preplanning a funeral service for yourself is a gift you give to your family. Having initial thoughts, desires, wishes written down for your family members make a difficult time a little bit easier to handle. There is a sigh of relief with some families when they sit with a funeral director planning the funeral service and they think that they don’t know what Mom or Dad wanted and the funeral director can tell them, that actually, they have some information and thoughts from Mom or Dad on their wishes for a funeral service. This pre-planning gift gives the family some confidence and reassurance they are doing the right thing to honor their family member. Preplanning the funeral service gives your family some peace of mind and a starting point.
When one begins to understand the financial and emotional pressure that a funeral can thrust on our loved ones, it becomes clear that planning in advance is a considerate and responsible thing to do. Pre-paying for the funeral service is a choice, not a requirement. You can meet with the funeral director, go over some funeral service ideas, choose your merchandise, your casket, vault, urn, memorial stationery and you can choose your services, calling hours, how should the obituary read, what were your favorite bible verses or poems or songs.
Should you decide to prepay your funeral service, think of the prepayment as similar to the protection that life insurance provides for loved ones; planning and prepaying for a funeral in advance can protect loved ones from much more than just financial concerns. You have always been there to protect them throughout your life, why not after your death?
