Making funeral arrangements for a loved one can be a very stressful process. By preplanning, you help relieve that unwanted stress. Preplanning is truly one of the most thoughtful and loving things you can do for your family.
You also have the option of prepaying your funeral costs if you wish. You do not have to prepay in order to preplan. But, by prepaying, you lift the financial burden from your family.
