Benefits of Pre-Planning

Lot owners may prepay for opening and closing of the grave.

If there is one truth we could cite from our years of helping and counseling families, it is that pre-planning is one of the great kindnesses we can bestow on those left behind.

From the standpoint of grieving families, pre-arrangements are a godsend. Time and again, we hear expressions of relief and gratitude from families whose loved one made funeral pre-arrangements. It’s as if, by thinking through everything in advance, that family member left a final, thoughtful gift — of clarity and peace of mind.

From the standpoint of those who pre-plan, there are many benefits. You rest easy, knowing you have spared your loved ones agonizing guesswork and anguishing decisions. You derive the satisfaction of spelling out what you want rather than leaving the hard choices to others. You determine the service and the disposition of your remains. Even the smallest details can be determined in advance, ensuring that your wishes are satisfied.

Pre-planning also locks in funeral costs and avoids “emotional overspending” by your loved ones later on. By pre-planning and prepaying, you could save a considerable sum. The pricing is protected from inflation and will never increase.
Pre-arrangements can be made either at Laurel Oaks or at your home or office. We’re available seven days a week to meet with you at a time that’s convenient for your schedule. We offer helpful tools to guide your decision-making (this website is a good place to start). On completion, you receive a handy packet confirming your pre-arrangements to be put with other end-of-life documents.

To get started with planning ahead, please call us at Laurel Oaks to set up an appointment.
