3 New Ways to Think About Planning Your Final Disposition

November 9, 2021

If you have ever woken up in the morning and said to your wife, husband, or significant other, “Hey let’s go down to the cemetery and buy some graves today”, raise your hand.

That’s what we thought. Final disposition isn’t always your first thought.

However, we want to offer a few scenarios that may change your mind when it comes to how you think about preplanning your final disposition.

 Be in Control

First, when you decide to buy a car or house do you send someone you know out to buy it for you? The likely answer here is probably not. Your final disposition involves a situation that you will be spending a lot more time in than a quick trip to the supermarket. This is where you’ll spend eternity and if you don’t make decisions now someone else will make them for you. If you’re okay with that, then no problem. We can arrange for your burial the way your representative wants it. However, if you would like to remove that burden from your loved ones while also ensuring your final resting place is exactly what you want, then it’s time to set up a meeting.

Know Your Options

Second, we have yet to work with any client that wasn’t at least somewhat surprised, disappointed, or worried about what they didn’t know about a burial. Many are unaware of the variety of options available to choose from. We’ve all heard it and it’s true, knowledge is power. By becoming informed and educated about the options, our clients uncover a sense of peace, confidence, and security. Knowing such an important part of your life is planned offers satisfaction and more importantly, relief.

Get it Done

Finally, once the arrangements are made that’s it. You’ve done it. You don’t do it again, trade it in or buy another one. So not only have you made your own choices, but you’ve taken a tremendous emotional burden off your family.  They will be forever grateful. We know this because we witness the difference between those that are representing the deceased that only need to sign for preplanned service and those who must plan the entire service themselves.

Also, we know what you’re probably thinking now: “I don’t need to that now, I’m still young and healthy.” But we want to stop you right there. The truth is you don’t need it until you do. It can be that quick. So, planning before you need it is key.

You’re never ‘too’ young.
