Pre-planning is a decision that only you can make, however it is a decision that will affect those who you love the most. It's important to remember that funeral services are designed to be a part of the grieving process and an important aspect of closure.
Discuss your decisions with your family members and loved ones.
When considering your final wishes, be careful to also consider the thoughts of your loved ones.
Take time to reflect on the type of services you require such as a graveside service, memorial service, a reception, and a service in a church or local religious facility.

Take time to consider the detailed aspects such as cemetery plot location (cremation or burial), flowers, pictures, videos, music, and special instruments.
Consider input from your spouse, partner, and your loved ones when choosing services and the details of each service.
