When death occurs it is often overwhelming for those left behind. They are left struggling to cope with the loss, let alone having to plan the many details of a funeral. It would be a welcome blessing to most of us to have the planning and financial burdens lifted. Emotional stress can cause us to make many choices and decisions we normally would not. Our loved one's favorite poetry, special scriptures or a number of others details are to often forgotten only to be remembered after all is said and d one. You can lift the burden for those you will leave behind by pre-arranging. Pre-arranging is an essential part of today's personal and financial agenda.
Both you and your loved ones can benefit when funeral arrangements are made well in advance of need. By discussing plans in advance, you can take all the time necessary to make the most satisfactory decisions regarding the type of ceremony and burial procedures preferred. A carefully planned funeral service can also be a comforting gift to your family. It can spare them from facing decisions that can be so difficult at a time of death. And it can give them lasting peace of mind knowing they've acted in accordance with your wishes.
We encourage you to discuss your thoughts and decisions with your family, then call or e-mail us if you have additional questions. Planning ahead basically involves three separate steps. First, recording all the necessary biographical information needed at the time of need. Second, the selection of type of service and merchandise preferred. The information you provide is kept on file until needed, at which time your family is ensured to receive the services and products you have chosen.
For your convenience, we have a number of ways to record this information. Give us a call and we will set aside a time for your visit to Owen Funeral Home where we have examples of caskets, vaults and other merchandise. If coming to our offices is not possible, we are delighted to set up an appointment and visit you in your home. You can begin pre-planning by using our on-line form. After we receive your personal and confidential information, we will contract you to confirm the information in your file and finalize all your wishes. And we can arrange a method of pre-paying thus guaranteeing those costs will never increase.
