Whether you want to go on a cruise, get married, or buy a home, you can bet that there’ll be plenty of planning involved. That’s a good thing. It’s important to plan for important things in your life. But have you ever considered making final services arrangements with a funeral home in Charleston, WV? Many people assume that their family members will do it for them after they’re gone. And the reality is that their family will be left with the task if there were no prior arrangements made. But wouldn’t it be better to do it yourself so that your loved ones, after your passing, can focus on grieving rather than on planning your funeral or cremation?
Here are a few reasons why it’s really never too soon to preplan your body disposition.
No One Knows When They Will Pass On
A key reason why it’s never too soon to preplan your body disposition is that you really never know when you will pass away. It would be nice if everyone could live to a ripe old age, enjoy retirement, go on dream vacations, and accomplish everything on their bucket lists before dying. But not everyone is afforded this privilege. Since you don’t know when your time will come, you should make arrangements as soon as you can. You won’t pass away one second sooner merely because you decided to preplan. But you might sleep better knowing that you’ve done something your loved ones will thank you for both now and posthumously.
Lock In Today’s Prices
If you do decide to preplan, you can also prepay. This will allow you to lock in today’s prices for final services that will take place in the future…hopefully far into the future. You can be sure that your loved ones will be grateful at your thoughtfulness in preplanning and prepaying. There’s no telling what the cost of a cremation or a funeral will be when you die. By locking in a definite price now, you won’t have to worry about possible price increases due to, among other things, inflation.
Peace of Mind
You will have more peace of mind when you realize you’ve done the responsible thing. Yes, you should have a will and a power of attorney drawn up. But it’s also important to preplan your cremation or funeral – and to make arrangements for payment of the final services.
