Your family will have a lot to deal with after your passing. You can take
some of the stress away by
pre-planning your funeral in Hayward. Planning ahead is a great option if you have specific requests for your
funeral service or if you do not want your family to have to worry about
planning your service. These suggestions can help:
Choose Between Burial and Cremation
One of the top benefits of pre-planning your funeral is making it clear
if you want to be buried or cremated. If you have never talked to your
family about which option you prefer, they may be unsure of what to do
when you pass. Planning ahead allows you to create a document that will
tell your family whether to choose traditional burial or cremation.
Plan Your Funeral Service
Funeral pre-planning also allows you to customize your funeral service.
You can make an outline that highlights what type of ceremony you want,
where you want the ceremony, and what friends and family should do throughout
the ceremony. Make a note of whether you want a religious ceremony or
would prefer a less formal event for your loved ones. This will ensure that
your final wishes are respected.
Make a List of People to Notify
If you pre-plan your funeral, you can make a list of people you want notified
of your passing and invited to your service. Your family members may not
know all of your friends and acquaintances; making a list will let them
know who they should contact and invite to the funeral service.
Help Your Loved Ones Avoid Stress
Along with ensuring that the service runs the way you want, planning ahead
can also help your loved ones avoid stress during this already difficult
time. Planning a funeral can be overwhelming when you are grieving. Pre-planning
your funeral will take the burden off of your family so they can focus
on saying goodbye.
