No one like to think about dying and leaving their loved ones let alone plan it. It can be a very difficult topic to talk to your children or other loved ones about. But it’s one of those things you just have to talk about.It’s going to happen. We may not know when or how, but it’s going to happen. Talk about what you want to happen after you pass.
There is so many question that need to be answered.
- Do you want to be buried? cremated?
- What type of service do you want?
- Name of church (if service to be held)
- Clergy to preside over service (name)
- Open casket? Closed casket?
- Funeral home preference
How are you going to pay for your funeral? This can be one of the biggest stress factors when planning a funeral is worrying how to pay for it. Do you have life insurance? Pre-pay?
Pre-Planning a funeral isn’t an easy subject but it’s a necessary one. It’s keeps you family from guessing what you may have wanted, and it keeps your family from disagreeing later.Think of it you pre-planning all of this as a gift to your loved ones.Once you pass they are going to be grieving and you’re taking the stress of planning a funeral away and letting them focus on grieving.
If you want to pre-plan your funeral find a local funeral home and contact them. They should be able to sit down with you and help you choose everything that needs to be chosen. They can also tell you how much everything will cost.
I know this is a hard topic. Planning your funeral doesn’t mean you’re dying. It doesn’t mean you going to pass anytime soon. It’s just for peace at mind not only for you but your family to know that when something does happen to you that you have taken care of everything and everything will be done the way you would like them to be.
