Pre-Planning

Discussing Pre-Planning

Arranging a funeral in advance can be a worthwhile experience despite the impact your own life will have on those you love. Of all the ways one can express love, one of the most thoughtful involves funeral planning before the need arises. It's not an easy thing to talk about. But wouldn't you rather plan now and spare those you love unnecessary hardship and complication in their time of grief?

Questions You Should Ask Yourself


"If my death occurred tomorrow...
  • who would arrange my funeral?"
  • the money needed to pay for my funeral would come from whom?"
  • how much would my funeral cost?"
