Chicago Pre-Planning Arrangements
Facing one's own mortality is always difficult. Still, planning ahead
can have a number of benefits in the long run. Planning your own funeral
is a relatively simple process, and can make life much easier for those
left behind after your passing. Even if you're in good health at the
moment, you might consider making pre-planning arrangements with Leak
& Sons Funeral Homes. We’ve been providing grief support and
help with funeral arrangements for more than 80 years.
Reasons to Pre-Plan Your Funeral
Making pre-need funeral arrangements can ensure that your wishes are fulfilled
after your passing. Here's a brief look at why pre-planning your funeral
is a good idea.
Personalize Your Memorial: Making the funeral arrangements yourself is the only way to ensure that
your memorial and burial are conducted precisely as you wish. This is
particularly important if you have specific religious or spiritual requests.
Eliminate Uncertainty: If you pass away without letting your memorial and burial wishes be known,
your family members will have to guess what you would have wanted. Making
your own arrangements will give your loved ones one less thing to worry
about in their time of grief.
Avoid Overspending: Grief often leads surviving family members to overspend on lavish funeral
arrangements for their deceased loved ones. Pre-planning your own funeral
will allow you to lock in an affordable price and help surviving family
members avoid financial hardship.
While pre-planning your own funeral may seem like a big task, the professionals
at Leak & Sons Funeral Homes will help you every step of the way as
you handle the following considerations.
Memorial Service: Making pre-need arrangements can give you time to choose the venue of
your memorial service, as well as the music, decorations, and format.
Pre-planning allows you to get as detailed as you wish.
Disposition: You can also take the time to decide on your final resting place. We'll
help you select a burial plot, a cremation urn, a casket, or a niche,
depending on your preferences.
Other Requests: Our funeral home professionals will present you with all the memorialization
options and help you narrow down your choices. For example, we'll
help you determine whether you want an open casket, a closed casket, or
if you would prefer not to have your remains present at your memorial service.
