In her book, “I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings”, Maya Angelou writes “Hope for the best, but be prepared for the worst.” As a young woman reading this book, I loved the hope part, but had to learn that there was wisdom in being prepared for the worst too. It doesn’t get much worse than death. Are you prepared?
Planning for a traditional funeral involves many of the same elements as planning for a major life event such as a special birthday, anniversary or a wedding. A number of detailed decisions have to be made regarding the when, where, participants, music, programs, menu, flowers, clothing, transportation, etc… The difference however is that you have months to plan for these events, while most funeral services are held within 4-7 days of one’s passing.
The stress that accompanies a loss is greater when a family is unprepared and all decisions have to be made in a matter of a few days. The good news is that these decisions can be made in advance, through the Pre-Need planning process, and you can be prepared. Pre-Need planning gives you the time and opportunity to:
gather vital statistic and family history information that is needed for the records,
make decisions regarding what you do and do not want in funeral services without duress,
discuss your options, choices, the laws, etc.. with a Funeral Service Professional and make informed, not emotional decisions, and
identify or establish the best way to pay for the services chosen.
Pre-need planning reduces stress at time of need because the detailed and major decisions are already made, needed information is on file and the financial burden has been taken care of. It is not surprising then that statistics indicate that 8 out of 10 people believe Pre-Need planning is a wise thing to do.
If you are like most people, you have auto insurance, fire insurance, homeowners coverage, renter’s insurance, etc… You’re prepared in the event of losses that may occur, but seldom do. Why not then, get a plan for that which is inevitable?
Tell your family and friends “I hope for the best and plan to live a long life, but I am prepared. I have Pre-planned.”
