Have you thought about how you will be remembered? Many of us are too busy with the day-to-day of our lives to spend much time thinking about what will happen after we’re gone. But taking the time to make a formal plan for your funeral can be a gift to your loved ones.
Planning your funeral allows you to reflect on what’s important to you, share those values and traditions with your family, and ensure your loved ones don’t have to deal with any additional stress or uncertainty when the day comes to lay you to rest.
Cost is something many people worry about when thinking about the end of their lives. Preplanning can help you prepare for your final expenses and relieve your family of the burden of paying for your service.
When you preplan with Pipkin-Braswell, you have the option to make payment arrangements to pay for the costs in advance. This protects your family members from future price increases and inflation, so there are no unwelcome surprises. It also allows any life insurance payments to be applied to your family's other needs after you’ve passed on.
There are also other, less material costs associated with funeral planning. Decision-making can be emotionally taxing, and conflict can arise from families who don’t agree on how to best honor a loved one. When you leave specific wishes behind, you ease these burdens so that your family can focus on taking care of each other through this time.
Funeral preplanning can seem overwhelming, but it’s easier when you have an expert to help. Our planners can help guide you through the process of deciding what you want and making a plan for your arrangements. Call us at 303-996-0869, or click the link below to begin planning online.
