Plan for the Day.
Why it makes sense to make choices about your future funeral now.
Here’s the truth: selecting a final resting place in advance makes a difficult time become solely about celebrating life and honouring who you are. The alternative is often confusion, disagreement and guesswork. So, it’s smart to make these choices now. That way they’re not made on your behalf, at an emotional moment.
Pre-planning your funeral services can save your family from having to make decisions while they’re grieving. And they won’t have to guess what you’d want. Making pre-arrangements is the responsible thing to do, instead of getting bogged down in details, your family will be able to focus on celebrating your life.
Funeral services are often an unexpected expense. But they don’t have to be. You can choose to fund your pre-arranged plans now, and the costs will be locked in for the future, even if prices for various services and products increase. You don’t have to pre-pay if you pre-plan, but it is the best way to take the financial burden off your family. So it’s definitely a smart option to consider. Also, please know that your payments and plans can be adjusted later, should your wishes change over time. So there’s nothing to regret by going through the process now. Your decisions don’t have to be final.
