Three important facts about planning a funeral in advance:
- The death of a loved one is a tragedy every household experiences.
- Most families will find themselves poorly prepared to deal with the problems, indecision, and costs a death forces on them.
- The decision to prearrange your funeral needs today is very economically sound, although the strongest reasons to prearrange are love and peace of mind.
Benefits of Prearrangement
Price-Freezing: Based on the last five decades, we know the cost of cemetery and funeral arrangements will continue to increase. Prearrangement allows the costs to be frozen at today’s prices.
Payments: Funeral and cemetery costs are expenses every individual must plan to pay. These needs can be met today out of current income through budget payments. Payment at the time of death is traditionally made on a cash basis.
Peace of Mind: When a death occurs in any family or among friends, the grief is tremendous and the healing time very long. Prearrangement will have a positive impact of your family and friends simply because you have made your own decisions. This peace of mind provides benefits far beyond the dollars spent.
