Funeral Planning Ahead of Time

By Sean Schopf

Most people don't like to talk about, or even think about, dying or preparing for their funeral. But as you grow older, you think about it more and decide that you should take that burden away from your family and friends.

So let's start by deciding if you want a regular service with open casket, visitation, etc., or cremation? How would your family feel about cremation? Most funeral homes require that you have a signed release from all family members for the cremation process.

Now, you've decided you want a regular service with all that entails. Contact the funeral home you want to use and set up an appointment. They will help you with the arrangements and should be able to answer your questions.

You also need to choose the cemetery where you want to be laid and find out what kind of memorial stone is allowed there. Some cemeteries only allow flat stones and some still allow the traditional upright memorial. Once you have chosen the cemetery and the plot, you need to decide if you want the memorial placed now or later.

If you pay for the memorial stone now, you can avoid the rising costs in future years. Also, many undertakers have "contracts" which you can buy now and everything is designated to be done at the time of your death and you pay for it now--thus avoiding rising costs.

You also can choose "perpetual care" which means that your plot will be maintained through the years for a nominal cost. And the memorial stone you choose can have a flower vase, two flower vases, or no vase, as you choose.

If you want to be cremated, there is a different process. You can have an open casket, but you will have to purchase a casket just as you would if you were having a regular service. At least in Iowa, the law states that you can no longer rent a casket for a memorial service.

Many funeral homes now are also crematoriums. So if you have chosen one of those, they will be happy to make those arrangements for you and include them in the "contract."

Once you have made these arrangements, it will be a simple process for your family at the time of your death and they can concentrate on the "celebration of your life." They will be eternally grateful to you.
