3 Reasons to Preplan a Funeral, Ewa, Hawaii

Speaking candidly about your mortality can be challenging. However, preplanning your funeral is a dignified way to alleviate financial and emotional stress from those closest to you. To help you relieve your family’s burden, Leeward Funeral Home in Pearl City, HI, discusses some of the benefits of planning a funeral in advance. 

Here are three reasons to start thinking about your memorial service:


  • Financial Relief: Your family will experience some hardship when you pass on. Fortunately, you can relieve that adversity by shouldering the costs of service now. By preplanning your funeral, you ensure that spouses, children, and extended family focus less on the details and expenses and more on celebrating your life. 
  • Specificity: It's fine to tell your family that you don't want a fuss made about your funeral arrangements. But being vague on the subject doesn't make it any easier for them. Planning aspects such as the wake, program, and memorial service takes the guesswork out of funeral planning and prevents potential disagreements between family members. The more you can reduce confusion and conflict among loves ones during such a difficult time, the better.
  • The Benefit of Time: One considerable advantage of preplanning a funeral is the extra time it allows you to make weighty decisions. Forcing the family to plan the entire service in a matter days after death results in an “at need” funeral, which is more stressful and less carefully thought-out than those that are preplanned.

To make the right preparations, get in touch with Leeward Funeral Home on Oahu. The director and staff emphasize a "Celebration of Life" approach, designing thoughtful, touching ceremonies that shine a positive light on the deceased to remind people what made that person special and beloved.
