While you are at a funeral or memorial service, you realize that you want the same exact arrangements for yourself when you die. If you tell a family member or friend about your wishes, but do not have a record, when your death happens will that person remember what your wishes were?
Do your arrangements take care of the needs of your family in their grief? Services are for your surviving family and friends. Your spouse, children and other family members may need different services for closure. The need to say goodbye, a song at a service or putting together a memory table or collage of pictures can help people begin to grieve and heal.
POSITIVE REASONS FOR PREPLANNING:
1. Explore your Options
You may inquire about all options for arrangements, whether it includes burial, cremation or an out-of-town transfer of your body. Once you have all information and the costs related to each arrangement, take time to decide what you want.
2. Guarantee the Cost of your Funeral
Prepaying for Funeral Services should always protect you, not the funeral home or mortuary. While we can not guarantee that another mortuary will honor our prices, the pre-need funds and all interest should transfer to the funeral home of your choice. Prepayment is usually done in the form of insurance-funded or trust funded contracts. This means that the services and or items that you pay for at the time of the prearrangement are guaranteed to you at Reck Funeral Home, Luce Funeral Home and Luze Funeral Home so your family will not be charged more at the time of your death for the arrangements you desired.
All services and items that you pay for should be itemized with the amount for each service and item listed. This way you should you need to change your type of arrangements, it will be simple to refund or add charges.
3. Peace of Mind
Funeral pre-planning allows you to have your wishes in writing. This record lessens the confusion family members have at the time of death. Many times family members are relieved when they find out that this record exists. Talking about death is not easy to do and people do not want to think about their loved one’s death. Therefore, having a pre-arrangement with all information and obituary information in place is helpful.
You always have the right to review and change arrangements and information at any time. Always remember that it is your prearrangement.
