Pre-Planning Your Funeral
Many people aren’t comfortable with the idea of pre-planning a funeral or thinking about death when they’re relatively healthy. However, this process has many benefits that can make life easier for your loved ones. At Ocean County Cremation Service, we encourage clients to consider this option seriously and here are some reasons why:
1. Relief for your loved ones
Death is a time of intense grief and shock; people closest to the deceased individual are under a lot of stress. Planning a funeral at the last minute only adds to that burden. Pre-planned funerals don’t require much effort. Family members just need to contact their funeral home and professionals handle everything else. This allows people to focus on their grief instead of being bogged down by responsibilities.
2. Your wishes for the funeral
Pre-planned funerals are carried out according to your instructions. For example, if you want a cremation instead of a burial, the funeral home will follow this instruction without question. Sometimes family members want to go against a decadent’s instructions because of their personal beliefs or opinions. Pre-planning ensures this doesn’t happen.
Funeral expenses can increase over time so booking it in advance can help save some money. The price is locked in for a specific period based on your agreement with a funeral home. As this service is paid for in advance, your beloved ones needn’t bear the cost burden at a trying time.
There are several other benefits of pre-planning a funeral, especially if you choose a good establishment for this purpose. The funeral director will explain the details, provide cost estimates, and help you decide. This doesn’t take much time or effort.
