At Bradshaw-Carter Funeral Home, we understand that you want the memorial service of your loved one to be a comforting, intimate, and memorable experience; we also understand that you want the same thing for your own service. This is what makes pre-planning such a positive step. By pre-planning your life celebration, you can ensure that the service is exactly as you would like it to be, and that your friends and family members are able to honor your life without having to worry with last-minute planning or orchestrating details you left unspecified.
How the Process Works
The pre-planning experience is by no means a morbid one: On the contrary, it is a positive and even comforting step you can take to make sure that all arrangements are made for your service, that those who survive you will be able to celebrate your life knowing full well that the service is exactly as you wished it would be. Pre-planning is an act of service, as well: It minimizes the chance that any planning difficulties, obstacles, or uncertainties will arrive to distract your family members during their season of bereavement and reflection.
Our compassionate and experienced staff members are prepared to offer helpful, empathetic assistance as you seek to plan your service. This is not a complicated or high-pressure undertaking—just a time of reflection, in which you can make sure that all of your wishes are recorded, your plans mapped out. Our staff will guide you through the process; you will have the opportunity to complete a Meaningful Funeral document, which you can then safely store with all of your other important documents.
Benefits of Pre-Planning
Certainly, there are many benefits that come with pre-planning:
- Experience the peace of mind that comes from knowing your loved ones will not be burdened with funeral decisions during their time of mourning and remembrance.
- Ensure that you are able to make all of your funeral and life celebration choices deeply personal choices, authentic to your own standards, lifestyle, and beliefs.
- Financially prepare for your service, getting an accurate estimate on the total cost and beginning the process of setting aside some funds. This is another important way to ease responsibilities for your family and friends.
The pre-planning process empowers you and your family, and offers a large degree of comfort and assurance. To learn more about the process, please contact us at your earliest convenience.
