Pre-Plan Your Memorial:
When people think of the future, they usually hope that selecting an appropriate memorial is something that will be significantly distant. But if you ignore those plans long enough, they may become a source of financial and emotional stress for your loved ones. Selecting a memorial is a daunting task which we would always prefer to delay, but when you sit down with one of our memorial specialists, you will find that it is one of the simplest and most sound investments you will ever make.
4 Good Reasons to Preplan Your Memorial
1. Consider Your Family
The death of a loved one can be the most difficult and traumatic experience of a person’s life. By selecting a memorial ahead of time you can relieve your family from the emotional burden associated with all the decisions involving its purchase. Planning today for “tomorrow” lets you make logical, well-thought-out plans that your family will appreciate.
2. Consider your own Wishes
Pre-planning your memorial gives assurance to your family that your memories will be preserved for future generations since you were able to participate in its design. So by making plans and having what you would like in place, this can be considered as a “final gift” to your family and friends.
3. Consider the Lower Costs
A memorial purchased at today’s cost is an inflation proof purchase since it relieves survivors of a financial burden and ultimately provides additional financial security to your loved ones. Like everything else, a memorial will cost less now than in years to come and while most people have life insurance or funds reserved for retirement, these are intended for the living, not to meet the cost of a memorial.
4. Consider the Peace of Mind
Planning a memorial does not mean that death is imminent. It merely acknowledges that it is inevitable. Your family and others who care for you will be assured the memorial reflects your true wishes.
