Death and the subsequent funeral is not a topic most people like to talk about, let alone be comfortable doing so, or planning ahead for it. Many people make declarations like “I don’t want any fanfare” or “Don’t have a formal ceremony – just put me in the ground.” But bear in mind, that funerals and memorials are for those left behind, not for the deceased.
Fortunately, most people will likely only be involved in planning one or two funerals in their lifetime. Funeral Pre-arrangement Service is a wonderful gift to those left behind. During this period of stress and grief people don’t think rationally or clearly, and may have no idea what the deceased may have wanted.
