It’s not easy to be prepared for the loss of a loved one, sudden or otherwise. About 70% of all burial arrangements made today are by the surviving spouse or children.
However, pre-planning allows you to make these decisions in advance. A good plan alleviates the stress your family will be under in their time of grief.
Starting the conversation with your loved one is a good place to start. What are your thoughts on burial versus cremation? What type of monument do you want to be remembered by? The caring staff at Magnolia Cemetery can help guide you through some of these tough questions.
Pre-planning also allows you to freeze the cost and can be paid with no interest. Over time, this helps to lessen unnecessary strain on a family’s income. We at Magnolia Cemetery are here to help you plan what is suitable for you and your family. After making all your decisions, be sure to have a record of them kept in a safe place. Make sure your significant other or close family member knows all the details.
Making the decision to prearrange your cemetery needs now is financially sound, although the strongest reasons to prearrange are love for your family and peace of mind.
