While nobody is comfortable discussing their mortality and making preparations for their own funeral, it’s a natural part of life unless you can figure out a way to cheat Death. When you need to make funeral pre-arrangements in the Medford, Oregon area, Perl Funeral Home & Siskiyou Memorial Park has you covered. You can choose to meet with our professional staff in person at our funeral home, or you can opt to use our online resources from the convenience of your own home. Taking the time to pre-plan your final resting place and memorial service is beneficial to you and your loved ones for many reasons.
When you eliminate all the guesswork about your personal preferences, it relieves your family from having to make as many difficult decisions during their mourning period. Ensure your funeral or memorial service is the best reflection of who you are and celebrates your life in a way that matters. Do you want to be cremated instead of buried six feet under? Perhaps you want your service to skip all the sappy poems and scripture verses read at most funerals. This is your chance to make your final wishes known, giving you some control over how you’re remembered for all eternity.
The grieving process is cumbersome enough without placing so many difficult decisions on your family. While you may not be able to account for every choice that must be made, you can prepare for all the major decisions such as cremation vs. burial, the appropriate tone and funeral venue, and who should deliver your eulogy or write your obituary. In the end, your family will be appreciative that you took the time to pre-plan, as they deal with saying farewell and remembering you fondly during your service.
Many individuals prefer to make funeral pre-arrangements because they don’t want to feel guilty about putting the costs of their funeral on their loved ones. You can make payments ahead of time or figure out which money from your estate or trust fund will be allocated toward your funeral costs. This also prevents your family from making as many impulsive decisions at the last minute, as grief can often cloud people’s best judgments. Perhaps you don’t want to spend eternity in that gold-glittered casket.
The Internet has made planning ahead for anything more convenient than ever before. You can now compare the costs of various caskets and urns at the touch of a finger or take a virtual tour of local cemeteries to ensure you get the ideal plot. You can also take your time without feeling rushed or pressured into making the wrong decisions. It’s never too early to begin planning for your funeral.
