Planning for the Future
When pre-planning a funeral, all of your thoughts and wishes are planned. Your family will know what you want, and not what they think you want. James L. Pedlar Funeral Home, will help you put your wishes in writing. Writing it down will help avoid family disputes, or involvement by others that may not know what your wishes are. Your loved ones won't question: "Did we do the right thing? Did we forget anything? Is this what she/he wanted? Did we spend too much?" All this is eliminated because you made the decisions and put it in writing.
Pre-planning is the first step. Many people are considering ways to fund their funeral. Funding the funeral guarantees that the goods and services you selected will not cost the family anything more. Pre-planning along with pre-funding work together because they offer peace of mind. Your survivors will not be burdened with decisions regarding your funeral.
Since 1960, the number of pre-planned funerals has increased by 1000%. Why such a dramatic increase in Pre-Planned Funerals?
Because pre-planning guarantees:
Your wishes will be fulfilled.
You will spare your loved ones any unnecessary financial burden.
Pre-planning your own funeral makes sense because it allows you to take full control of your funeral right now. You can save your loved ones the trauma of making difficult decisions without knowing exactly what you wanted.
Pre-planning allows you to confer with your family and make your plans together, therefore resolving your most personal matters with a clear mind, in a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere. In return, you will save the people you care about most from the emotional turmoil and necessary decisions that an unplanned funeral can often bring.
Your funds are held in your name, through our funeral home with a registered financial institution. The funds will earn interest until our services are required. When you prepay your funeral in full, we guarantee to supply the same funeral at the time of death for the original payment plus accumlated interest. If the payment and accumlated interest are less than the cost of the services at the time of death, no further payment will be required. If the payment and accumlated interest are greater than the cost of services at the time of death, the difference will be paid to your estate.
