THE BENEFITS OF PRE-PLANNING
Fairmount Memorial Association is here to guide you through the process of memorialization. It is our belief that every life lived deserves to be celebrated. Whether it is to lend a helpful and comforting hand at the time of need, or for planning ahead the gentlest most loving gift for the loved ones left behind; it will be our privilege to serve you.
On this page we provide information and resources to help you understand the advantages for pre-planning you funeral, cemetery and memorial options.
DETERMINE YOUR LEGACY
Prearranging ones cemetery and funeral plans in advance allows for the opportunity to compare the many available options and to ensure that one’s wishes are met. You have the time to consider the locations, memorial options, monuments, markers and all the other elements that best define your legacy and the relationships of the ones closest to you throughout your life.
CREATE PEACE OF MIND
Pre-arrangement provides another type of legacy: a gift to family members and loved ones relieved of financial and emotional decisions. Your commitment to create a plan will relieve family members of making emotionally difficult decisions when they are suffering from a loss. Through the process of pre-arrangement, pre-funding will insure that funeral expenses will be paid for; with arrangements being made at a time when ones financial setting is more predictable. Pre-planning is a true and gentle gift to loved ones, easing the burden for those left behind.
Whether you desire a cremation or traditional casket burial, to accompany a spouse or other family member, a beautiful monument to be enjoyed by others or a more subtle choice, these decisions are easier to make sooner - rather than later.
While you may have considered your preferences, if you are like most people it isn't something you have discussed with family or next of kin. Sadly, this not only creates a burden on loved ones, but your desires for the type of memorial you wish to have is left unspoken and, likely, unfulfilled.
Creating a plan allows you to choose where you want your memorial to be.
You may want to ensure your memorial is in the same park as other family members, or near a neighborhood you lived in.
Pre-planning your funeral and cemetery arrangements not only reduces doubt and anxiety, but its also a powerful act of caring as your decisions and plans relieve family members of making emotionally difficult decisions when they are suffering from a loss. Through the process of pre-arrangement, pre-funding will insure that funeral expenses will be paid for; with arrangements being made at a time when ones financial setting is more predictable. Pre-planning is a true and gentle gift to loved ones, easing the burden for those left behind.
THE IMPORTANCE OF PLANNING AHEAD
When you have to make a choice and don’t make it, that is in itself a choice.
– William James
