Pre-Arrangement

 

N o one wants to think about the time when he or she dies. However, if you do not make arrangements ahead of time, someone else will decide where you will be buried and how much of your estate will be spent. This person will most likely be a grieving member of your immediate family, and most people in this situation overspend, mistakenly equating a higher cost with greater love for the departed. By acting now, you can lighten your familys burden when that time comes. Pre-planning your cemetery arrangements – with your head and not your heart – is an act of love that provides several financial and emotional benefits to your family, not to mention your own satisfaction in knowing that your wishes will be carried out to your personal specifications.
