Three tips for planning memorable end-of-life celebrations
Even though funerals are a celebration of the deceased’s life, they tend to be somber affairs. But they’re an important part of the grieving process for the people who are left behind and a final opportunity for friends and loved ones to say goodbye. If you’re the guest of honor, they’re also your final opportunity to express yourself, and to be remembered the way you want to be remembered!
Glory Boats celebrates the lives of outdoorsmen and women by providing suitable transportation from our world to the next one. We manufacture boat-shaped caskets right here in the USA, and we’re always a phone call or mouse click away when you want to learn more about our products. 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 a truly memorable funeral or memorial service:
Put your wishes in writing-Grieving families are far too often forced to plan funerals at a difficult time, and you can spare them plenty of heartaches by leaving behind a written plan. We offer a free “Map To That Far Shore” on our website so you can start planning your funeral now. It only takes a few minutes to complete the form and keep it with your will and life insurance policies.
Choose your casket-Our boat-shaped caskets are scaled-down versions of the venerable aluminum Jon Boat, and are large enough to accommodate most individuals. Your casket will be lined with your choice of camo or fish pattern and topped with a tough outdoor awning canvas stretched over a commercial-grade, welded aluminum frame. Your Glory Boat casket looks just like a fishing boat that’s wrapped up for storage, and it makes a great centerpiece for blue jean memorials surrounded by your closest family and friends.
Revise your plan as needed-It’s a good idea to update your will every three to five years or each time you have a major life event. Be sure to take a look at your end-of-life plan and make changes and updates as necessary. It’s your party, and you owe it to yourself to focus on all the details while you still can!
