Saamis Memorial | Our Funeral Pre Planning Service

preneed funeral planningWith all of the steps involved with the funeral planning process, taking it all on at once can cause an overwhelming amount of pressure for family members who are tasked with making arrangements while dealing with grief and bereavement. The truth is, many people underestimate what is involved with planning a funeral. In addition to the physical handling of the deceased, there is legal paperwork, communicating with other family members and organization of the entire service, all to be taken care of in a timely fashion. Understandably, families choose not to open the dialogue about death and what happens when a loved one passes away. People tend to leave these decisions until it is too late and that can complicate things for surviving members of their immediate family. Pre planning a funeral not only allows you to plan your own end-of-life care, but it also makes things more manageable for those you will leave behind.  This way your family will know exactly what you want and won’t have to guess or try to plan from scratch.

Benefits of  Pre Planning Funeral Services

There are many benefits to funeral pre planning. Here are the top ten reasons why you  should consider preneed funeral planning:

  1. It means there will be fewer opportunities for argument and indecision about your funeral arrangements among family members after you're gone.
  2. Your survivors will never have to worry about doing the wrong thing when finalizing your funeral arrangements. You will have told them exactly what you want.
  3. No mistakes and no oversights. After you're gone, everything will be done your way.
  4. You have peace-of-mind now knowing that we will follow through with your wishes.
  5. After your death, no one can make any decisions you wouldn't want.
  6. Funeral pre-planning is the responsible thing to do. It removes the burden from family members.
  7. You can make complex decisions ahead of time when you have the time to think things through.
  8. Funeral pre-planning can involve pre-payment. This will save your family money and avoid any financial burdens.
  9. Funeral pre-planning involves an awareness of the reality of death.
  10. You are almost guaranteed to get what you want.
