Planning a funeral when you’re grieving the loss of a loved one is a very difficult process. One way to get around this is to pre-plan for your inevitable death. With a pre-planned funeral, you have taken steps to tell the funeral director what you want in your funeral service. You can be as detailed as you want, from who speaks and what songs are played, or you can give general guidelines. Here are the reasons why you should pre-plan your funeral and how to go about doing that.
Benefits of Pre-Planning Funerals
When a loved one passes away, it is very difficult on the family left behind. Even if you’ve left behind a will and instructions, everyone seems to have their own ideas about how to remember you. Making decisions as a family can be difficult and put a strain on an already tenuous situation. Pre-planning your funeral makes a lot of sense.
How to Pre-Plan Your Funeral
Planning a funeral isn’t something that’s easy to do and it’s not a common skill. It makes sense to work with the people who are in the industry. A funeral director will help you through the process and work with you to pre-pay expenses for what you want. Any money you place in trust for services with a provider is protected by the Pre-paid Funeral Services Compensation Fund administered by the Board of Funeral Services.
The professionals with Direct Cremation can support and guide you through the steps of a funeral to make those decisions. You can take your time to think about every aspect to have a thoughtful service that represents you. It’s not morbid to think about your funeral. On the contrary, it’s a kindness to your loved ones.
