Pre-planning your own funeral can be difficult, but it’s important to prepare for the final phase of life. Maceroni Funeral Home & Cremation Services offers funeral pre-planning services so you can ensure that your final wishes are met while protecting your family from financial burden.
Reasons to Pre-plan Your Funeral
The grief and stress of losing a loved one can be compounded when family members must plan a funeral in a short time period. However, pre-planning a funeral offers some relief for your family after you pass on. Planning ahead ensures that your wishes will be followed, as family members sometimes disagree on how to best honor their loved ones. Additionally, pre-planning allows you to pay for the funeral in advance, which relieves the financial burden many families face around a funeral. Your family will appreciate that you have cared for them even after passing and allowed them to enjoy your end-of-life celebration without additional stress.
Funeral Planning Preparations
When you are ready, you’ll find countless resources online to help you plan—for example, our pre-arrangement form that allows you to communicate your funeral wishes to us. You'll have to opportunity to provide information such as family history, military service, funeral service requests, disposition request, will information, and any additional information you’d like us to have. You can provide as much or as little of this information as you’d like. Then, you can request to schedule an appointment with us, or we can simply keep your information on file to make things easier for your family when the time comes.
