Reasons to Preplan Your Own Funeral

Reasons to Preplan Your Own Funeral

If you’re entering your “Golden Years” or if you’re very sick, it’s a great, loving gesture to help your family out by preplanning your own funeral services or cremation. By planning ahead, you know everything is set and there will be less to plan and to do while your family is overwhelmed by emotions from your passing.

As a funeral home in Jacksonville, our team at Evergreen Cemetery, Funeral Home & Crematory has helped plenty of people, couples, and family plan for the inevitable, so their families will have peace of mind. For this blog post, we wanted to share with you some reasons that it’s a smart idea to preplan your own funeral, if possible. Think of preplanning your services as a gift to your family.

  • It’s necessary – The idea of planning your own funeral sounds pretty morbid, right? No one enjoys this process but it’s great to have a plan in place so that your loved ones will know exactly what you wanted. You can put money aside, make certain purchases, or write exactly down what you want. Since your death is inevitable, these decisions need to be made anyways and if you do it now, you can help ease the burden on your loved ones.
  • The unexpected can happen – Life happens, and we never know what will be thrown at us. If you’re capable of planning your funeral services now, do it earlier rather than later. It will be a lot harder to plan if you are immobile or housebound or not your usually self.
  • It gives you the opportunity to talk to loved ones – If you plan these services early, you can tell a spouse, children, grandchildren, and other loved ones what you want – everyone can be on the same page when it comes to the service, funeral home, flowers, wake, cremation, budget, and more.

After you make your plans, make sure you discuss them with your loved ones and show them where all the paperwork is located, so they can easily find what your purchased, ordered, or planned. No one wants to plan for this life event, but it needs to be done, and if you do it early, you can help take a lot of stress away from your family during a hard time.
