Talking about death won’t bring it about.

Map Your Legacy

A superstitious person might avoid talking about their own death, for fear the mere mention of the word will hasten their demise. Of course, this fear is ill-conceived. In fact, pre-planning your funeral is a great way to celebrate your life. What’s more, pre-planning is a thoughtful gesture for your loved ones, who will be free from the stress of guessing about your preferences even as they grieve.

Pre-Planning Peace of Mind

Pre-planning your funeral will give you peace of mind.

Simply taking the time to consider and record your end-of-life wishes, pre-planning also relieves your own anxieties about the future. Since there are virtually unlimited options from traditional embalming and burial to cremation or scattering ashes at sea, you should have a say in how your remains are handled and the way your life is remembered. Once you take the time to map out your plans, you can take comfort in the fact that your plans are in the capable hands of reliable friends or family.

Pre-planning will give your family peace of mind.
