Funeral Preplanning
by Charlie Taggart

Pre-Planning your funeral

Funeral planning is something that will be done, to some extent, at least once by everyone. In many cases it is done by a family member after a individual has passed on. This burden is often difficult for a loved one as they are trying to sort out their emotions and deal with their loss. Making funeral arrangements in advance greatly reduces this burden.

If you find yourself hesitant to pre-arrange your funeral, even with the best intentions, you are not alone. We all know intellectually that death is inevitable, and planning for and discussing it can be difficult, however, wouldn’t it be better to plan ahead, calmly and sensibly, when you are in a normal mental and physical state, having full ability to reason and discuss your arrangements and wishes with your family?

Pre-arranging a funeral makes sense, by doing so you are relieving loved ones of a financial burden, protecting assets from nursing home, federal, and state expenses , as well as assuring yourself and your loved ones peace of mind now and at the time of need.

Charles Taggart is a licensed Funeral Director in the State of Pennsylvania with over 20 yrs experience in funeral service.
