When death occurs without warning, a family member or friend is left to make all the difficult decisions of arranging a funeral. Most have little idea of what is involved, or what the deceased would have wanted. Many people hesitate when they consider pre-arranging services. Discussing and planning arrangements does not have to be an uncomfortable event. It can be an important and responsible step that can prevent both emotional and financial distress. Preplanning allows you to protect your family members from the stress of a difficult time.
