Pre-planning a funeral is helpful to everyone. As soon as you designate your own funeral plans, you have peace of mind. Sometimes people worry about what their family will emotionally spend on a funeral; so, having one’s affairs in order alleviates that concern. Pre-arranging is more than having things paid for, although it can be a relief for family members as well. There are great resources online for people to look at and fill-out. Most funeral homes offer payment plans as well. Again, giving instructions to the loved ones you leave behind is an act that will be praised and count towards one’s own legacy. Boxwell Brothers’ does not sell its pre-need paperwork to a third party. All pre-need money is put in a local trust and only able to be withdrawn when the services called for are rendered.
