Most people don’t have much experience in making funeral arrangements, so it is hard to feel prepared. Making these decisions can be difficult if you aren’t familiar with funeral goods or services; and you may be experiencing strong emotions after a loved one has died.
Talking about death is often difficult. Yet for survivors, a death in the family may create problems which could have been alleviated by pre-planning. Funeral and burial arrangements are important and should be discussed openly. The professionals at Osterberg Funeral Home can help you make funeral arrangements a part of your overall estate planning.
There are many different reasons for pre-arranging a funeral. Some people may want to assure that the funeral and burial meet their personal beliefs, standards or lifestyle. Others may want to assist survivors by arranging approximate funeral and burial cost guidelines. Still others, who have moved to distant places or who maintain multiple residences, may want to make sure that certain recommendations are heeded as to where their final disposition will take place.
Pre-arranging your funeral with Osterberg Funeral Home allows you to put your wishes in writing. Together you and the funeral director can discuss all the details. Once the pre-arrangement is completed, you should notify some responsible person that this agreement exists and where it may be found. If you choose, Osterberg Funeral Homes will supply additional copies for informational purposes.
Please contact us at Osterberg Funeral Homes to begin a discussion about any plans you would like help preparing.
