GreeneLawn Memory Gardens Pre-Planning

All of us know that the death of a loved one is an unfortunate event and that every one of us will experience it at some point in our lives. During this time of distress, the last thing we want to think about is making all of the decisions surrounding the death of that loved one and incurring the costs that come with those decisions.

The decision to pre-arrange your cemetery and funeral needs is one that shows your love and care for your relatives and friends. The fact is that you only have two choices when it comes to pre-arrangement. You can pre-arrange your family estate before the time of need comes or you can wait until death forces you to make arrangements. There are many benefits to pre-planning not limited to the ones listed below.

  • Togetherness
    A husband and wife can share their choices and decide together, therefore saving loved ones heartache, expense and inconvenience at the time of death.
  • Satisfaction
    On a prearrangement basis, a family burial estate can be selected by all family members, thus guaranteeing everyone's satisfaction.
  • Price-Freezing
    Based on the last five decades, we know the cost of cemetery and funeral arrangements will continue to increase. Prearrangement allows the costs to be frozen at today's prices.
  • Conserving Insurance
    Life insurance is for the living, not the deceased. Most life insurance is purchased to allow a family time to adjust to the loss of income that a death causes. If prearrangements are not made, a large amount of insurance proceeds can be spent on cemetery and funeral items adding financial burdens to loved ones left behind.
  • Payments
    Burial and memorialization costs are expenses every individual must plan to pay. These needs can be met today out of current income through budget payments. Payment at the time of death is traditionally made on a cash basis.
  • Peace of Mind
    When a death occurs in any family or among friends, the grief is tremendous and the healing time sometimes very long. Prearrangement will have a positive impact on your family and friends simply because you have made your own decision. This peace of mind provides benefits far beyond the dollars spent.
