Honor your wishes, protect your family
We plan for almost every event in our life; vacations, weddings, starting a family. We even plan for things that might happen; fires, floods, accidents. It makes sense to do some planning ahead for a funeral.
It feels good knowing your plans are in order. Planning ahead provides you peace of mind that your personal wishes are known and protects your family from having to make tough decisions during a time of extreme stress and grief.
Talk of a Lifetime
You talk about everything, but have you had the talk? It’s time to have the conversation on how you want to be remembered. Talk of a Lifetime helps you through this important conversation, about life and what matters most. Having discussions with your loved ones provides peace of mind when it’s time to commemorate a life. It can make the difference of a lifetime.
One of the best benefits to planning ahead is the impact on your family. Family members are living all over the country now. It can be frustrating to deal with government agencies. Finding important documents like a marriage license or honorable discharge can take time. Planning ahead can make a complicated task easier.
Planning ahead can protect your family. There are many decisions to be made, and arranging things ahead of time can spare your family unnecessary tasks at a difficult time.
No two people are alike, so their funerals should also be unique. By making your funeral pre-arrangement yourself, you can customize it to fit your preferences. Advance planning allows for you to plan an event that celebrates life, choosing your own venue, music, disposition choice and desired final resting place. These decisions are made best with our help as funeral professionals, at a time without stress and grieving.
Planning ahead can save money. Costs for everything go up. By making arrangements now, you can pay for things so your cost will not increase. This way your life insurance or estate funds can go directly to your family. Advance planning also eliminates the chance for emotional overspending by surviving loved ones. There are various payment plans available, which we are happy to discuss with you in person. Payments are placed in a trust account in a bank or in a pre-planning insurance account. In many cases, we can also accept an assignment of an existing life insurance policy for future payment of the amount of the final arrangements you desire.
Other Benefits of Planning Ahead
Planning ahead can make sure that you and your family receive government benefits. We can show you what social security, veterans’ administration, or state public assistance benefits can be counted on.Planning ahead will give you peace of mind. You will know that all decisions are made the way you wanted them, and that things are taken care of.
