Three tips for creating a great end-of-life celebration
Most people are too busy living their lives to think about how they will one day end. But if they don’t take a little time to plan and make the arrangements, they’ll be forcing their families to make all the decisions. Losing a loved one is a traumatic event for families, and they’ll already have a lot of other things on their minds. But planning a funeral isn’t really any different than planning any other event, and you can save 60-70% off the costs of a funeral if you plan ahead.

Contact us at any time to learn more about our boat-shaped caskets or hand-carved bullet-shaped urns, and let us show you how affordable it can be to plan a memorable funeral or memorial service. Our caskets can be used exactly like traditional caskets, and they’re designed to fit into standard size burial vaults and grave liners. Here are a few quick tips to help you get started planning your end-of-life celebration.
Put your wishes in writing-Grieving widows and widowers are rarely in the right state of mind to make a lot of decisions. In addition to keeping your will current, you can use our “map to the far shore” document to make your wishes known. It only takes a few minutes to complete, and it will save your family a lot of trouble when your time comes.
Shop around for the best deals-Shopping for a casket is like shopping for any other product, and you have the same rights as a consumer. You don’t have to purchase a casket from the funeral home, and you don’t have to buy an expensive burial plot or a bunch of additional services. Be sure to find out about cancellation and refund policies before making any purchases.
Remember the small details-Buying a casket, shopping for a plot, and arranging for embalming or cremation are the most important parts of planning a funeral, but don’t forget to prepare your guest list and think of the small things. It’s your party, and no details are insignificant.
