On average, most people will arrange only two funerals in their lifetime. This limited experience often leaves a family feeling inadequate, not knowing what to do or what it costs. “Help! I’ve never done this before.” Good funeral directors are able to hear the needs, provide some options and perform a service based on the uniquely personal decisions you make. Here is some helpful information about arranging a funeral. What you are doing is not just about prepaying and safeguarding the cost of funeral expenses. It is about recording your funeral wishes in order to remove from your family’s mind all doubt about how they should plan and conduct a funeral for you when the time comes.
