Although detailing the arrangements for one’s own passing may seem morbid, even depressing, it is a sound decision, both logistically and financially. By pre-planning one’s funeral, a person remains in control of his or her own final arrangements in every detail. This will make the funeral process run more smoothly, as everything has already been decided by the loved one in question and nothing is left to the guesswork of remaining relatives. It also prevents arguments and disagreements amongst surviving family members, who are already in a state of deep grief and shock, as to how to celebrate the life of the deceased. These arrangements can be made on behalf of a family member or friend.

In addition to easing the emotional burden on loved ones, the gift of pre-arranging helps them financially. Funerals and other end-of-life services can be expensive, and paying for one’s own ceremony in advance will keep these costs from falling upon those closest to the departed. Pre-funding locks in guaranteed prices for merchandise, services and facilities, which halts the unavoidable monetary increase of obtaining these things due to inflation.
