Free Plan Ahead Guide Gives Peace of Mind
My parents were great planners. They had plans for meals, budgets, retirement, etc. Just about anything that could be planned in life, they had a plan for it. My mom would write everything out in a notebook she kept in her bedroom drawer. I didn’t always appreciate it when I was younger but now I can tell you that their planning ahead was one of the greatest gifts they gave me and my siblings, especially since they also planned for their end of life.
Losing a loved one is never easy but my parents made it easier with their preplanning. In a time full of grief, I was able to focus on myself and my family instead of having to stress about all the details associated with planning a funeral.
My parents had already taken care of all of the details and paid for it years ahead of time. They gave me and my siblings a gift of peace and peace of mind. We knew without a doubt we were following their wishes because they left nothing to chance. It prompted me to have those conversations with my husband and my children. Although no one wants to talk about the inevitable, not talking about it can put additional stress on loved ones, especially during these challenging times.
It’s never too early to start planning for the future, including end of life. Preplanning is the best way to not only take some of the stress and burden away from your loved ones but also to make sure that your final wishes are known and followed. Preplanning can also save your family money since you can lock in at today’s prices and avoid inflation in the future.
