Why should I plan ahead?
Pre-planning your service relieves your family and loved ones from having to make complicated and important choices during a time of tremendous stress and emotional strain. During the passing of a loved one, those experiencing grief are not thinking very clearly, and making decisions regarding your memorial service become immensely difficult and emotional. Oftentimes one says, “Don’t make a big deal out of it, just get me buried and move on.” It is important to understand that the funeral services have deep roots in tradition, are a healing process for those grieving, and celebrations of your life help those dealing with loss to move on. It provides your loved ones and friends a wonderful opportunity to share memories of your life and offer support and comfort for one another.
