There are almost more benefits to cremation pre-planning than we can count. Here are just a few:
You Can Choose the Way You'll be Remembered
Have you given any thought as to how you want to be remembered? Maybe you had a long career in the military that you’d like to celebrate. Maybe you love animals and would like to encourage donations in your memory to your local humane society. When you make cremation pre-arrangements, you put your wishes on paper so that your loved ones will know exactly how to celebrate your life and honor your memory.
You’ll Make it Easier on Your Loved Ones
Did you know that there are more than 70 details that need to be tended to in the first 24 hours after a death? Are your loved ones ready for all that responsibility?
When you pre-arrange, you make those first 24 hours easier for your loved ones. You can also save them money. The stress of making last-minute cremation arrangements often causes people to make unnecessary purchases. By taking care of the arrangements yourself, you free them from spending more than they need too.
You Can Protect Yourself and Your Family from Rising Funeral Costs
Like most things, cremation costs tend to rise every year. That means that a cremation service today will probably cost less than the same service three or four years from now. Paying for your cremation now can save your loved ones money. If you’d like to explore the subject of locking in cremation costs, please contact us.
You’ll Empower Your Family
They will know exactly what needs to be done. That’s because you’ve taken all of the guess work out of planning your cremation service. When you pre-arrange your cremation, everyone benefits. You know that your wishes will be carried out and your loved ones know exactly how to honor you.
