While we all want to shield our loved ones, there is one thing we can't protect them from – the inevitability of our own passing. We plan ahead for so many events – holidays, weddings, birth, yet because most of us do not like to think about death, many people avoid making important decisions in advance about our funeral.
By planning and pre-paying your funeral and cemetery arrangements in advance you can be sure that your funeral wishes are carried out exactly as you want and that your family members are protected from the financial burden of paying for your funeral.
Funeral planning, before the need arises, is a positive way of putting our affairs in order. Usually, we will not wish to leave all the stressful tasks for others and often benefit from a greater sense of calm and control when we have looked after an issue ourselves.
