Putting Your Wishes in Writing
The first step to planning ahead is putting your wishes in writing. Your plan should clearly state where important documents such as life insurance policies, birth certificates, marriage license, military records, and credit obligations can be found. Your file should also contain important biographical information for the obituary notice. All this information saves your family time and added stress. Having all of this information in one place is of tremendous assistance to the family, and it is a gift of love only you can give. Your plan will also include your preferences for funeral services–whether you want a traditional or non-traditional service. You can include your preference for flowers, music, readings, even down to the type of casket you’d like.
A gift of love only you can give to your family.
Planning for funeral services in advance allows us to carefully consider the kind of legacy we want to leave behind for our friends and family. Many people today are planning all or part of their funeral services ahead of time because without preplanning, many questions are left unanswered for our loved ones.
