More and more people are pre-planning funerals and making pre-arrangements with their local funeral director. A carefully pre-planned ceremony can be comforting to your family, as it spares them from having to face decisions that can be both emotionally and financially difficult at the time of death. It also provides them with the peace of mind to know that they have acted according to your wishes.
Making pre-arrangements can be as involved or as simple as you wish them to be. You can make a selection of the type of service, casket, music, and any additional requests you may have or you can simply give only the biographical information that will be needed for notification of newspapers, legal forms, etc.
