Thoughtful Planning
Planning a funeral well in advance of the event can be extremely satisfying. So often, parents especially, are dissuaded from talking about their final arrangements on the premise that, “It won’t happen.” Hopefully the timing of such an event is long into the future but, if settled and personal wishes are made known, the rest of ‘life’ can be relaxed in the knowledge that the topic has been finalised, dealt with and paid for.

In the circumstance of dementia or inability, the person whose funeral plan is in place, leaves no doubt as to their final wishes with the ability to express their preferences regarding songs, flowers and their own, service order or pattern. Another advantage relates to finance: in most situations where a pre-plan exists, the funeral has been fully paid for often, years in advance. Unless there are fundamental changes sought by the person organising the actual funeral, there should be very little or nothing extra to pay. One final advantage is that, families are mostly informed of such pre-plans whereas they assume a Will exists but have no knowledge of its location. Pre-plans are usually made with local funeral directors which, in most towns or cities, narrows the options regarding searches and all holders of plans are usually issued with a plastic card similar to a debit or credit card – entitled, ‘Membership Card.’
A frequent occurrence is to naturally, ‘play down’ our own final arrangements in the often misguided ideal that we can reduce the pain of suffering to those we love and know. It is a misconception in the majority of cases. Of course, it is extremely sad that the deceased person has departed but for the family, friends and colleagues, it is fundamentally necessary to attend a memorial occasion for their own personal grief journey. If a friend has impacted or positively affected someone else’s life, they have ‘made a difference.’ It is only natural therefore that there be a mechanism to acknowledge that ‘difference’ and say, “Goodbye,” – a mechanism to share our thoughts and feelings with like-minded people who also cared for the deceased.
