Preplanning FAQs

Why should I preplan?

Click on the questions below to reveal each respective answer.

It's fine to be cremated – but will your family actually be comfortable doing that? If you have discussed cremation with your family and everyone is comfortable, choose a final resting place for at least some of your ashes – somewhere that will be marked with your name and dates. It's your final footprint, a place where family can connect with you again. We see it over and over again – people want to feel close to their loved one. Even if it's only infrequently, they know they can be near the person they love.

Sometimes it's a daughter going through a divorce and needs to feel close to her mom, or a grandson who has never met his grandfather, but finds they had the same birthday, or the granddaughter born on her grandparents' anniversary. When your ashes are scattered or left in a closet there is no marked resting place – you become part of a lost generation. No one wants to be forgotten.
