Pre Planning

pre-planning-whitney-monumentsToday, more and more people are choosing to select their monuments and cemetery lots in advance. The wisdom in doing this revolves around three sound principles:

It relieves an emotional burden
from your loved ones…

No one likes to think about his or her own death, but failure to do so makes it more difficult on the bereaved family. Also, choosing a family memorial is a joint decision. Why should someone be forced to make it alone?

It relieves the financial burden
from your loved ones…

The worst time to have to make a financial commitment is when there has been a death in the family. By planning in advance, you protect your family from high pressure sales tactics that can occur at a time when they are under emotional stress.

You can express your own wishes
and reflect mutual tastes…

Most importantly, you can select options that are important to you and design a monument that reflects who you are. Rather than have your family worried over what you would have wanted or what is appropriate, you can save them the stress of trying to figure out the right thing to do by designing your monument in advance.
