Three things to know about funeral pre-planning

Funeral arrangements are a deeply personal choice.

Pre-planning provides you with the time needed to make practical, detailed decisions that reflect your standards, lifestyle, taste and budget.

By pre-planning a funeral with Tezak’s Home to Celebrate Life, you and your family can be assured that the choices you make will be carried out as planned.

Tezak’s Funeral Home understand that making the many decisions which come at a time of loss can be difficult. The Simple Online Planner is designed specifically to provide you with an alternative way of considering funeral arrangements at your time of need.

Here are three things to know about pre-planning:

1. Pre-planning will help protect your loved ones from having to make quick decisions during an already difficult time.

Share your wishes for your final arrangements and the type of service or celebration of life you wish to have. If you’re unsure, Tezak’s Funeral Home can discuss options and provide additional information.

You should also discuss the type of burial you wish, such as cemetery location.

2. Pre-planning allows you to purchase prepaid funeral expenses, which relieves the burden of expenses from your family.

In the days immediately following your death, your assets may be unavailable. Life insurance can take 6-8 weeks to pay, leaving your children to cover your funeral expenses.

3. Pre-planning allows loved ones to focus on grieving and beginning the healing process after your death.

In the days immediately following your death, there are hundreds of decisions that must be made. From planning a funeral, cremation or memorial service, funeral arrangements are overwhelming at a time of loss and can be confusing for many if arrangements were not discussed ahead of time.

The dedicated directors at Tezak’s Funeral Home are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and can meet with you at the funeral home or in the privacy of your own home to assist you in planning ahead the “celebration of your life” the exact way you would like it to be.
