Advance Planning
The Advantages of Planning Ahead

The idea behind planning ahead is simple. One day, a great deal of vital information about you or a loved one will be
needed by your family and anyone whose responsibility it is to assist them. Those who plan ahead can be assured that,
not only will their personal wishes be fulfilled, but other unnecessary difficulties will be avoided.

Both you and your loved ones can benefit when funeral arrangements are made well ahead of need. It can be beneficial
to include your immediate family in those plans, ensuring those left behind are aware of your wishes and able to plan a
meaningful funeral that will help them begin their mourning.  By discussing plans in advance, you can take all the time
necessary to make decisions about cremation or burial, type of ceremony and other funeral elements.
