Guaranteeing Your Final Wishes
Planning your own funeral, memorial service, burial, or cremation is one of the best things that you can do for yourself and your family as you consider your end-of-life responsibilities. Having the opportunity to make these plans in advance will help lessen the stress or doubts that you have and also will make you a full partner in the decision-making process.
No Stress or Indecision For Loved Ones with Prepayment
Having your final wishes planned, documented, and paid for in advance will offer your friends and loved ones the gift of comfort. They’ll be confident that the decisions have been taken out of their hands and relieved to focus on your celebration of life and on working through their grief.
Here are some of our clients explaining why they choose to prepay for their plans:
- No Difficult Decisions. Janet, a retired teacher, says that she decided to prepay for her services after her mother died. “I’m an only child. When my mom died, I had to handle all of the funeral responsibilities, including choosing the casket, arranging the service, and buying a burial plot. It was really hard for me, and I did it by myself. Of course, I paid for it as well. I decided right then and there that I would pay for everything ahead of time for myself. No one has to wonder what I would like—the funeral director has everything written down and has assured me it will be followed to the letter. If I change my mind about something, I can just call him or visit to let him know,” she says.
- Easy-to-Afford Solutions. Lewis, an electric service employee, says, “Beinhauer Family Funeral Home will allow you to pay using installments, making the process very affordable. It really takes away the burden of not being able to afford what you’d like and makes it much easier. In fact, my wife and I are prepaying on both of our services, our cremations, and the burial of our urns. Some of my friends wonder why I’m doing this, but I tell them that I don’t want my kids worrying about funeral bills after I’m gone.”
- Exactly What You Want. Linda, a retired homemaker, talks about having very definite ideas about her end-of-life plans. “I would like to be cremated. I think that my kids were unsure, but I said that I would also like to have a service first with a casket and all the things to which people are accustomed. After the service, I will be cremated, and then my cremated body will be buried. It’s exactly what I want, and I wanted the opportunity to first, pay for everything, and second, select what I want.”
