It feels good knowing your plans are in order. Planning ahead provides you peace of mind that your personal wishes are known and protects your family from having to make tough decisions during a time of extreme stress and grief.
You talk about everything, but have you had the talk? It’s time to have the conversation on how you want to be remembered. Talk of a Lifetime helps you through this important conversation, about life and what matters most. Having discussions with your loved ones provides peace of mind when it’s time to commemorate a life. It can make the difference of a lifetime.
One of the best benefits to planning ahead is the impact on your family. In planning your wishes ahead of time, you relieve the burden from your loves ones. In a time of grief and stress, making very difficult decisions are the last thing that anyone wants. Second guessing what you wanted creates extra stress. Preplanning your funeral makes emotional sense. It is one of the greatest gifts you can give to those you love most.
Not two people are alike, and neither have to be their funerals. By making your funeral arrangements yourself, you can customize them to fit your preferences. Advance planning allows for you to plan an event that celebrates life, choosing your own venue, music, disposition choice and desired final resting place. These decisions are made best with our help as funeral professionals, at a time without stress and grieving.
You can pre-pay for your planned funeral at the price it costs today, saving you money. Many enjoy the benefits of prepaying since their financial savings in turn result in more inheritance money for their family. Advance planning also eliminates the chance for emotional overspending by surviving loved ones. There are various payment plans available, which we are happy to discuss with you in person. Payments are placed in a trust account in a bank or in a pre-planning insurance account. In many cases, we can also accept an assignment of an existing life insurance policy for future payment of the amount of the final arrangements you desire.
Everything from our first meeting, to the cemetery and certificates, thank you cards, flower arrangements, church and obituary were handled in a professional manner. No pressure, no hype with compassion and complete attention to detail.
The Urban Family provides compassionate and professional guidance throughout the funeral planning, the services and for months to follow. Their attention to detail offers family and friends comfort in knowing nothing will be overlooked. Our family greatly appreciates their kindness during our recent loss.
“Our family has been with Urban funeral Home for close to 30 years. My Grandmother, Aunt, In laws and most recently Mom have had their funeral handled by Urban. My mother specifically requested Skip & Dolores handle her funeral. We were in good hands from beginning to end. Peter and Trudy are wonderful. My thanks to all the Urbans.”
