Although initiating an end-of-life talk with your family members or loved one and arranging your burial may sound morbid, an increasing number of individuals see the value of preparing your funeral when you are still alive.

Why Should You Make Preparations When You Are Still Alive?

The professionals at Lietz-Fraze Funeral Home have enumerated several of these advantages:

1. Your Wishes Are Considered

Among the most significant advantages of preplanning would be that your funeral and memorial ceremonies will take place as per your choices. For instance, many individuals prefer cremation to burial, which may conflict with the family's intentions. You can ensure that your final wishes are followed by preplanning your funeral.

2. Preparation Aides In The Grieving Process

Family members are obliged to halt their grieving process to organize the funeral, postponing their own recovery and leading to significant stress. Preplanning alleviates this stress, allowing family members to focus on mourning rather than the arrangements. Preplanning funerals also ensures that the process is completed faster, ensuring that there are no complications following death.

3. Monetary Relief

Preplanning the funeral alleviates financial strain on the grieving. All funeral expenditures are pre-paid, so family and friends are not burdened with unexpected and last-minute fees associated with organizing the service. Preplanning a funeral can also help you save money by protecting them from potential increases in service prices. When you order a funeral at a reasonable price, the cost is fixed.

Funeral planning has become a more frequent occurrence as more people take advantage of the benefits of the process. If you are looking for information on preplanning a funeral, contact Lietz-Fraze Funeral Home.
