Your life has made an imprint, and the sheer fact that you’ve lived is worth remembering. Just as the love you share with family and friends is eternal, a memorial, beautifully crafted from nature’s most enduring materials, will represent the legacy you’ve left behind.
Love is eternal…
Although no one knows when the final day will come, it will happen for all of us. Taking care of some of the necessary details in advance makes that difficult time a little easier for your friends and family. In addition, making arrangements for your own memorial gives you input, and an investment in your personal legacy.
Pre-need planning shows your loved ones that you care. This is one less decision, one less task to perform during a time of loss and grief. Selecting your memorial now also lets your family avoid the heightened costs of the future, as well as emotional overspending.
A wonderful gift…
Your final gift will be taking some of that burden from their shoulders, and giving them instead a lasting memorial.
Once your pre-need planning is complete, your job is finished. When the time comes for the memorial to be put in place, your family will view it with not only love, but appreciation for all that you’ve done, and all that you’ve meant. What a wonderful, eternal gift…
For your peace of mind…
