Funeral planning in advance is for anyone who wishes to take the stress off of their loved ones at a very difficult time. If you think about it, planning is part of life. We plan for many events during our lifetime and your wishes for your funeral service should be included.
Many who have undergone the emotional strain of arranging a funeral within hours of losing a loved one have made the choice to pre-plan their own funeral. Doing so lifts the burden from their loved ones by relieving decision-making pressure at a time of grief and emotional stress.
Planning allows you to make wishes known to your survivors. Pre-Planning offers important financial advantages (Consult one of our licensed Funeral Directors for more details.) Pre-planning arrangements are flexible and may be updated or changed in the future. Pre-planning gives your family the peace of mind knowing a family member will not have to make difficult decisions during an emotional time.
Most of us are not prepared to plan and carry out a funeral ceremony for someone we love. And so much of the information available on this critically important subject fails to focus on what is most important: having a personalized, meaningful funeral that helps families and friends begin the healing process of mourning after the death of someone we love.
Cremation service takes place when a funeral is followed by cremation. However, you can also arrange for a direct cremation service without having a funeral or memorial service.
