Individuals and families make the decision to pre-arrange their funerals for a variey of reasons:
1.) IT OFFERS A PEACE OF MIND Preplanning shows consideration for the loved ones by helping make decisions at a less stressful time.
2.) MAKES YOUR DESIRES KNOWN Many questions come up at the time of the death such as: *Where and how do you want to be buried? *Will you want to be buried in a mausoleum, a cemetery plot or cremation niche? *What songs and bible verses were special to you and that you would like included in your service?
By answering those questions you will voice what you desire.
3.) PREPLANNING GIVES YOUR FAMILY THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE INVOLVED WITH YOU IN MAKING DIFFICULT DECISIONS TOGETHER. In this way families will know what the deceased requested, and will feel good, knowing they are fulfilling the wishes of their loved one.
4.) RELIEVES THE FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY FROM YOUR LOVED ONES. By setting aside the necessary funds, you are able to spare financial burdens from your family, and the funds would be exempt from being counted as assets, should you need county or medical assistance.
