- About Us
La preparación es un regalo. When we prepare for important milestones in life, we give the gift of future comfort and happiness to everyone around us. Weddings, quinceañeras, and anniversaries are all occasions when we plan not only for ourselves, but for our family and friends, too. In our culture, we understand the importance of taking care of our own. That’s why we plan for the meaningful turning points in our lives to include everyone we love.
However, we don’t usually plan for our own funeral services. This means that when the time comes, your family will be unprepared. Your loss will be difficult enough, but on top of it, your family will have to plan and pay for your funeral.
When you preplan your own funeral services, you aren’t just preparing for the personal parts of your funeral, like choosing hymns and scriptures. You’re also making preparations for your family’s grieving process, and making sure they won’t have to make any difficult decisions or worry about what you would have wanted. And, if you prepay for your services, they won’t have a financial burden, either. Below are ways that preplanning is a gift to your family.
One of the most meaningful parts of preplanning your funeral arrangements is making your services a reflection of your personality. This will be a comfort for both you and your family. Your personal touch will make it seem as though you are with your family during a difficult time, and they can take comfort knowing your services are exactly as you wanted them.
There are many ways you can personalize your funeral, from selecting which type of services you’d like to choosing who you’d like to deliver your eulogy, what types of flowers you like, and which scriptures are most important to you, among many other considerations. We will work closely with you to make your ideas a reality.
You don’t have to go through this process alone. Your close family or friends can provide support as you preplan your funeral arrangements, and they might even have ideas about personalization, or how your funeral can be more of a comfort to them when the time comes.
When you preplan your services, your funeral becomes your last great gift to your family. They will be the ones that will actually experience your funeral, and your services will be an important part of their grieving journey. That is why we actually encourage you to involve your family in this process. That way, as you plan, they can make suggestions and help you with difficult decisions. Their input will help them honor and remember you as they go forward after loss.
One of the most profound ways you can take care of your family after you are gone is by pre-paying for your funeral services. This will save them from the stress of paying for your funeral arrangements while they are grieving. And by prepaying, you lock in the current price, so you and your family won’t have to worry about price changes in the future. When it’s time, all your family will have to do is call us. We will take care of everything else.
