Pre-Planning

Almost no one wants to think about funeral arrangements until they have to. However, the best time to consider final arrangements is precisely when it’s not needed. By taking the time to pre-plan, families can give themselves peace of mind not only about each of the details surrounding a meaningful remembrance, but also the economics of providing for it.

The loss of a family member is one of the most stressful and emotional times in people’s lives. Making decisions and coordinating arrangements of a funeral can often seem like an overwhelming task when dealing with this grief and sadness. However, taking just a small amount of time beforehand to locate important papers, document unique wishes, and note special instructions can relieve family members of this responsibility during a difficult time and also ensure all final requests are carried out as the departed desired.

The process can also be taken a step further to make provisions for final expenses. There are a number of options available to meet the needs of most families. One of the most appealing benefits of pre-arranging expenses is the ability to lock in prices and hedge against the effects of inflation. Protecting life insurance benefits and other estate proceeds, which are intended for loves ones left behind, from being diminished by funeral costs is also a major advantage of pre-planning.

The caring and courteous staff at The Funeral Chapel welcomes inquiries about pre-planning and is more than happy to discuss your family’s needs and preferences. Please feel free to contact us at your convenience.
