Pre-Planning: The Time is Now
It’s rare to find a person that proactively thinks about their death and how their funeral service should be conducted etc. If you are in good health you may feel that the concept of pre-planning a funeral is almost ridiculous. But the fact is that there are a number of benefits to it. We at Charles J. O’Shea Funeral Home have put together this short list, which will make it clear how pre-planning your funeral has a number of advantages:
1. Less of a burden on your family
The family of the decedent has to wade through their grief and manage all the aspects of the funeral. Planning the service and organizing every little thing can be quite taxing, especially at a time when they are still coming to terms with the loss. When you pre-plan your funeral, you make all the arrangements after discussions with the funeral director and the funeral home will handle it all. This takes the burden off of your family’s shoulders.
2. Your wishes will be respected
When you pre-plan you can decide exactly how you want your funeral to be held. Whether you want a full-scale service, a memorial service, a burial or a cremation etc. everything will be managed just as you want it to be. This also leaves very little room for dissent among your family members.
3. No financial burden on your family
Funerals can be quite an unexpected financial burden on the grieving family. When you pre-plan, it helps lighten this burden as you make all the payments in advance. In addition, the cost of the funeral service will also appreciate over time. When you pay in advance it helps your family saves a considerable amount of money.
