While it may not be as flashy as other new years goals, completing your funeral pre-planning arrangements is not only important, it can be easy and quick! To get you thinking about adding this to your New Years Resolutions for the year, here are 4 compelling reasons you should plan your own funeral now.
Ensure Your Wishes are Carried Out
While we may not have thought about this before, you will want to reflect about what type of services you want. Where should the services be? What do you want them to look like and sound like? Who do you want to be there? These are just a starting point of things to ponder as you pre-plan.
Save Your Family From Making Difficult Decisions During Grief
There will always be grief and heartache after a death. Your friends and family will be relieved to know to not have to make hard decisions while they’re grieving. What a gift it would be to allow them to take the needed time to remember you without having to deal with additional planning stress.
Prevent Family Fights
The last thing you will want after you pass away is for your family to be arguing. By pre-planning, you will be able to greatly reduce the stress of your loved ones. They will not have to make guesses about what you would have preferred for your services. Pre-planning will allow you to gather with your family proactively to discuss your wishes and reflect on what life stories are most important.
Pay For Your Funeral Service in Advance
Having your funeral services paid for in advance is just another burden off of you and your family. Make sure to work with a trusted funeral home to ensure your wishes will be met. You can also be sure that your pre-planning contract is consistent with the guidelines provided by the National Funeral Directors Association (NDFA).
