Pre-Planning Your Funeral

Most of us can plan out most of life’s greatest events — a birth of a child or grandchild, a wedding, graduation parties — things that make a life complete. Most of us seldom think of planning or put off planning for the inevitable, however — the death and funeral of someone. Here at the Calvin and Leonard Funeral Homes, we are here to assist families in that process and with that, give them a peace of mind that your funeral is taken care of when the time comes.

Here are some benefits of pre-planning to assist you as you decide whether or not pre-planning your funeral may or may not be important to you. We hope that these simple benefits listed below will assist in your decision.

1) Peace of Mind
Many of the cases who come into our Funeral Homes will undergo the emotional and financial strain of arranging a funeral within hours of losing a family member or loved one. Many also make the choice to pre-plan their funerals in advance. Doing so will lift the burden from their loved ones of making those pressure-type decisions at their time of need.

2) Your Own Personal Touch
Funeral arrangements are never consistent and the same — they are your own personal choice: the way you want it. Pre-planning provides the opportunity, in advance, to make those standard lifestyle and budget choices to plan out your funeral. You are also rest assured that at the time of passing, your wishes will be carried out as you plan them.

3) Lower Costs
When you finalize your financial plans, we will advise you of total costs. This ensures you get what you paid for and your family will not be forced to set aside thousands of dollars to plan your funeral at your time of need. Pre-planning also protects you against the rising costs of funeral expenses. By locking in today’s funeral costs, you relieve yourself and your family members of worry and unexpected expenses when the time comes.

In essence, pre-planning is an act of love and a practical decision for someone. You can do it at your own pace and at your convenience.
