Our funeral pre-planning consultant is Charles “Chuck” Thomas (3161)

Without a doubt, dying is an event in life that is guaranteed to occur. You may never get married or have children, but without fail, one day you will take your last breath on this earth. For most of folks, this is a disquieting thought. Yet it is still something you should plan for – if not for your own peace of mind, then for the well-being of those you’ll leave behind while taking the unnecessary burden from your loved ones of handling funeral details in their time of sorrow.

In this section, we will help you make decisions for the future by explaining what is involved in the funeral pre-arrangements, the rewards of pre-planning a funeral, and what options are available.  If requested, Chuck will come to your home and go over all options for preplanning, prepaying, and how to get an inflation-proof preneed.

Well, why not “right now”, we know you may not be fully emotionally ready to take on this task. Perhaps the best time to begin making your funeral pre-arrangements is when you have a family you wish to protect from the emotional and financial burdens you will pass onto them when you leave them with no plan at all. Do it while you are healthy. Funeral pre-planning can be one of the most comfortable & warm feelings that even a young individual can have.

By taking time now to collect funeral cost information and calmly making smart choices related to your own funeral arrangements, you’ll be protecting your family against the stress of having to make these decisions at a time of extreme emotional stress. This way you can carefully choose specific items you want and need… and pay for them now. Prepaid Investments through funeral homes allows families to fund their funerals in advance through different investment vehicles.

The Six Common Reasons for Pre-Planning a Funeral

Today, more individuals and families are making the decision to prearrange their own funerals than ever before. Because of the factors such as inflation, fewer extended family members living close by, and other changes in our society, planning your own funeral just make a lot of sense.

In a recent survey of folks just like you, these were the most common reasons people gave for prearranging their own funerals:

  1. Communicates your final wishes to all
  2. Reduces stress for friends and family at a very emotional time
  3. Saves time and money for you, your family.
  4. Your family will never have to pay more for your funeral wishes — no matter what happens with endless rising costs (inflation proof).
  5. Shows you care more that any final thing you can do
  6. Relieves your loved ones of any financial responsibility at all

Any one of those reasons is good, but when you take them all together, it’s easy to see why pre-planning your funeral is one of the smartest things anyone can do. If you agree, give us a call to set an appointment with Chuck our pre-planning advisor.
