Benefits of Pre-Planning

 What Would Your Family Do If You Died Today?

It’s a fair statement to say that most people don’t want to think about what will need to be done when they pass away. However, more and more of us are beginning to see the wisdom of preparing ahead of time for that eventuality. In recent years, National Funeral Marketing Studies of Americans over the age of 40 have indicated that over 85% of us think planning ahead for funeral arrangements is a good idea.

Many people who adhere to this belief have become convinced through personal experience. Most of us become wiser people after we suffer from the “hard knocks” of life that catch us by surprise. One of the most painful “hard knocks” comes when we lose someone we love. Death in a family can be devastating for obvious emotional reasons, but also for financial reasons. Grief may be compounded when a family finds that they are completely unprepared for the expense.

Today, there is absolutely no reason to leave your family unprepared. There is something you can do: You can make your funeral arrangements now. You may be surprised to find out how easily it can be done.

At Lake Shore Funeral Home and Cremation Services, we stand ready to help. We know how important it is to be prepared before the time of need. Our Family Care Advisors are trained to provide you with information about every funeral arrangement option available today, and a detailed explanation of the costs involved. After reviewing the options available, you may carefully record your preferences for the benefit of your family in a free Advance Planning Book.

You should also seriously consider paying in advance for these arrangements through a Pre-Need Funeral Program, using one of several convenient payment options that are available (with no finance charges), and which include cash benefits for your family in case of premature death. If you do, the cost of the arrangements you select will be guaranteed at today’s prices. That will save your family hundreds, and perhaps thousands of dollars.
