Why Planning Ahead is So Important!

There can be as many as 75 decisions to be made within the first 24 to 48 hours after a death has occurred. It’s difficult to think rationally while making so many decisions within days of losing someone you love.

That's why pre-planning is so important. It gives you and your family peace of mind because everything is already planned and there are no last-minute decisions to make. Plus, it’s easy do it, and if in the future you'd like to make some changes to your arrangements, you can do that at any time.

Death is certain, but the date of your death isn't. That's why planning ahead ensures that your loved ones are prepared when the unexpected does happen. It also enables them to focus on supporting each other instead of worrying about the details of the event.
