The Importance of Planning Your Own Ceremony March 31, 2017

The Importance of Planning Your Own Ceremony, Wagoner, Oklahoma

Why would I plan my own funeral, when I don't plan on dying anytime soon?

- This is the main question funeral directors hear when asking people to pre-plan.

By pre-planning your funeral, you can:

  • Make all the arrangements during a time of peace and not leave the planning to your family during their time of grief.
  • You will be able to plan what you want.
  • You can control the cost and ensure that everything is paid for, so your family won't be burdened with the payment.
  • You can ensure all the personal information will be correct and that your family won't be searching for the information.

Planning a funeral can be hard on a family, especially when they are in a grieving stage. The family will be in a tough spot and then will rush to get things done.

Steps needed in Planning a Ceremony:

  • Burial Plot
  • Service, Memorial, Grave-side Service
  • Cremation or Burial
  • Personal Information
  • Pictures
  • Obituary
  • Casket or Urn
  • Flowers, Pallbearers, Death Certificates, Birth Certificates, Etc.

These are just a few of the steps that are included when planning a Funeral.

Be sure to tell your family where you Pre-Arranged your Funeral at so they will know where the documents are located. Pre-Planning can give you a peace of mind knowing that your arrangements are ready and pre-funded.
