Designing a Custom Monument
A custom monument is a great way to pay tribute to a departed loved one or, if you’re pre-planning your own service, to ensure that you keep complete control over your affairs. The best way to get started is to research types of markers and monuments that have already been designed; however, the sky is the limit! You can choose the type of granite you want, color and texture, and even customize shape, size, artwork, inscription, and more. If you want to create a more exact graphic of what you want, you can find software or apps to assist with the design process.
Go into the process with a budget and a general idea of what you want in mind; our professionals will help you with the rest!
The Six Common Reasons for Pre-Planning a Funeral
Today, more individuals and families are making the decision to prearrange their funerals than ever before. Because of the factors such as inflation, fewer extended family members living close by, and other changes in our society, planning your own funeral can make a lot of sense.
In a recent survey, these were the most common reasons people gave for prearranging their own funerals:
Communicates your wishes
Reduces stress for friends and family at an already emotional time
It may guarantee your family will never have to pay more for your funeral — no matter what happens with inflation
Shows you care
Relieves your loved ones of the financial responsibility
Any one of those reasons is good, but when you take them all together, it’s easy to see why pre-planning your funeral is one of the smartest things you can do. If you agree, give us a call to set an appointment with one of our certified pre-planning advisors, or get started right now, with PreArrangement Online. Don’t worry. It’s safe, secure, and completely private.
