You never know when death will visit you, and frankly you don't actually want to know. But since you can't predict the future it is best to simply be prepared for it. One way to do this is to plan your own funeral so that your family won’t be burdened with the stress that’s a part of the process.
Do you know where to look to find the best price caskets for a funeral if you need one? Most people don't. It may sound ghoulish to be talking about pricing caskets but planning for a funeral is a big project. When you truly love your family you will do the planning for them.
One other aspect is to decide is if you want to have a viewing at your funeral. If you don't desire it, you might want to have them skip the embalming as well. Maybe you’d rather have the family get together instead. A closed casket ceremony with a big family remembrance gathering afterwards may just be more proper.
Of course, many people today are opting to skip it all, cremate the remains, and then have the service and wake all at once while scattering the ashes. This may sound somewhat gruesome to some but it can also be a wonderful way to say farewell.
Whatever way you choose to have your funeral, make plans for it today. Leaving this to your loved ones can be easier on you but much harder on them. Planning your own funeral is a great way to show how much you love and care about them.
