The Gift of Preplanning

Imagine you could give your family the greatest gift of all… not having to plan or pay for your funeral and burial.

Think of how much more peace of mind you’d have to enjoy the rest of your life knowing that all of your final wishes are already planned and paid for.

Perhaps you’ve wondered how to ensure that your family will have an easier time going through the grieving process when you die. Wouldn’t it be nice to have them know that everything they did was exactly as you wished!

There’s only one problem.

Only 21% of people alive today have made plans in advance for their funeral and burial.

If we were all going to live forever, we wouldn’t need to think of this.

Putting family into the position of having to do all the planning and all the paying for you, especially as they are grieving, is a terrible option.

Fortunately, there’s is a concept called Preplanning that takes all the hassles and some of the pain away from the family.

Preplanning can help make that day better for all. Family can gather together to celebrate your life rather than feeling the stress of not knowing if you would have liked the choices they made for you.

By planning ahead for the details of your final goodbye, you will be able to:

Tell your story as you wish to

• Send your love to family

Help start the healing process

• Eliminate the hassles for your loved ones

Live your life to the fullest now, knowing that all is taken care of.

Of course, you could ignore all this and continue on your merry way and …

… Leave your loved ones with a huge expense

… Make your family run around and make arrangements while they are in grief

… Not be able to share your knowledge one last time

… Leave the world with your love for family possibly unexpressed

Preplanning doesn’t cost any more, it actually saves you money.

Preplanning insures that you will have what you want, where you want it. You will be able to send your final message to your loved ones as you want.

Preplanning has three components and entails planning with three separate entities:

Funeral home

• Cemetery

• Estate planner and/or estate Attorney

• Wisconsin State Law doesn’t allow for Funeral Homes and Cemeteries to work together for you, and Estate Planners/Attorneys look at the big picture for your family’s future so it is even more important to start your preplanning now!

DON’T DELAY!

Your very own, St. Mary Cemetery, is your best option for the Cemetery part of your preplanning.
