planning ahead

saves money

A well-thought-out celebration of life plan can save your family money. When a loss occurs, family members often want “only the best” for their lost loved one, which can lead to overspending on selections you never would have chosen for yourself. If your family knows exactly what your wishes are, they generally are able to save considerably by avoiding unnecessary spending.

saves time

At the time of loss, the last thing family members usually want to do is visit the funeral home and spend several hours making arrangements. With a plan in place that outlines your wishes for a final tribute, your family is spared from having to make those difficult decisions while experiencing grief. Instead, they are able to spend more time together, offering comfort, support, and love to one another.

brings peace

If a family is unsure or torn about which options to choose for the final arrangements, this indecision can often intensify the pain of grief. In many cases, family members experience additional anxiety, pain, doubt, and sometimes even internal disputes about what their loved one would have wanted. On the other hand, when family members have a carefully planned tribute to guide them through the process of making arrangements, they experience greater peace knowing that they are honoring the final wishes of their loved one.

protects your family

The time of loss is an especially vulnerable time for those who are closest to the one who has died. A well-planned tribute safeguards family members from having to make extremely difficult and permanent decisions while they are in a state of intense pain and grief.
