There can be as many as 40-50 decisions to be made at the time a loved one dies, and these decisions must be made at a time that can be emotionally charged and physically taxing. There are four main reasons why it is important to make at least some kind of pre-planning.
- People can make sure that their personal wishes will be fulfilled.
- It makes sense to preplan to alleviate difficulties for the survivors.
- People preplan to avoid unnecessary overspending.
- People may preplan to lock in the price.
If a family prepays a funeral, that funeral cost is guaranteed at today's price and will not escalate with inflation.
The funeral directors at The Hamil Family Funeral Home will help you put your final wishes in writing or you may get started by using our online Easy Preplanning Form. Your loved ones won't have to question, "Did we do the right thing?" Regardless of whether or not you prepay your service, it is important to make a memorandum of your funeral arrangements so that your spouse and/or family can be made aware of your final wishes.
