Thinking about the inevitability of one's death is a subject that few like to consider. Many of our clients have told us, however, that once they began moving ahead with the pre-planning or pre-paying for their funeral, they felt pleased and satisfied that they had completed their final arrangements according to their choices. Moreover, when one considers the financial and emotional pressure a funeral can thrust on our loved ones, it becomes clear that planning in advance is a considerate and responsible thing to do.
Quality of Care
While Cole Funeral Services is involved with death on a daily basis, we never forget that completing all the necessary arrangements of a funeral service is a task most families face only a few times. We are compassionate to your needs, and can help you with completing all of the arrangements within your financial means and with the special preferences you desire. Our intention is to help make every ceremony personal and meaningful, and truly reflective of the life that was lived.
An important part of your financial planning
Similar to the protection that life insurance provides for loved ones, planning a funeral in advance can protect your family from much more than just financial concerns. You have always been there to protect them throughout your life; many see a pre-planned funeral as a way to continue protecting them after their death.
When is the best time to pre-plan your funeral?
The best time to begin making your prearrangements is now, while you're thinking about it. While some people in their 40's and 50's may think it's too early to pre-plan, people who do say that prearranging their funerals is smart financial planning and gives them added peace of mind knowing they aren't leaving this burden to family members. By taking time now to collect cost information and calmly making choices related to your own funeral arrangements, you'll be protecting your family against the difficulty of having to make these decisions at a time of extreme emotional stress. This way you can carefully choose specific items you want and need ... and pay for them now. Prepaid Investments through funeral homes allows families to fund their funerals in advance through different investment vehicles.
