Preplanning your funeral can act as a gift for your family when you are no longer around. In addition to the grief that they will be experiencing as a result of your passing, your family and friends may stress over the details of planning a funeral. They may be uncertain as to whether or not you would have wanted particular services or may be concerned about your approval. By preplanning services and events, your loved ones will be able to celebrate your life with peace of mind in knowing that your final wishes have been granted.
Preplanning your funeral can mean many things, such as outlining the type of funeral service you want (open casket, memorial, or graveside) or determining whether you want to be buried or cremated. You might consider events, such as having a reception after the funeral, or religious rites that you want recognized. It may also be helpful for you to indicate who you wish to read your eulogy.
