You Think I Should Preplan My Own Funeral?

Wow – that is a hard task to get motivated to accomplish. We all know we are going to die, but acknowledging it through preplanning your own funeral can be a really difficult task. Why would you even want to contemplate such an action? Because it can save your family a tremendous amount of stress and anguish when the time comes.

Preplanning of any sort is based upon the concept that if you prepare your plan before the event is imminent, you will have the luxury of time to research your options and really think about what you want or need. As a result, your plan will be more comprehensive and better reflect your ultimate goals or desires. You also gain the chance to convey the personal philosophies that went into creating your plan to the people you want to be familiar with your plan.

Without a plan in place, either you or others on your behalf often have to throw together a plan under pressing time constraints. If it is someone putting the plan in place for you, then there is the additional stress of wondering what you really want and if the plan adequately reflects your desires. Add to this mix the emotional turmoil that death can create and those making the plan for you may burden themselves with wondering if they did the “right thing” long after the decisions have been made and carried out.

So, although preplanning your funeral may not be the activity you had in mind for a Saturday afternoon or the preferred topic for Saturday night dinner conversation, when you eventually do die and the rest of the family is plunged into an emotional haze, they may find your preplanning to be one of the most thoughtful gifts you ever gave them.
