Most people aren’t aware of what’s involved in pre-planning a funeral and feel that even thinking about death and preparing for it is a little unsavory. However the concept of pre-planning your funeral is now becoming more widely accepted. We at Lietz-Fraze Funeral Home can help you pre-arrange your funeral and here is some information that can help:

The Process Is Easy:

Contrary to what most people think, this process is quite simple and not time-consuming at all. You only have to discuss your requirements with the funeral director and fill out an online form. We will guide you through the entire process which doesn’t take very long. You don’t need to visit the funeral home multiple times or even make an excessive number of calls for the information you need.

The funeral director will make detailed notes about all your requests and will also offer suggestions as required. They will also provide you with information related to the expenses and then accept the booking. Pre-planning a funeral doesn’t have to be uncomfortable or stressful to you.

You Take The Burden Off Your Family:

This is probably one of the biggest benefits of pre-planning your funeral. Families tend to go through a significant amount of grief and stress when a loved one passes away. When you pre-plan your funeral, it gives them the chance to focus on all the other aspects, especially their grief. This goes a long way in reducing distress and burden. The funeral director will provide them all the information they need and handle all aspects of the funeral.

Aside from this, when you pre-plan you also save money for your family because the prices are fixed at the point of booking. Even if there is an increase in the funeral service cost, the pricing is locked-in, which means your family doesn’t have to pay any additional amounts.

If you want to arrange a funeral, or have any questions about the process contact us at Lietz-Fraze Funeral Home. You can call us at (928) 855-4949 or (928) 753-2555 for use our online form. We're here to help.
