Pre-Planning Info

Save your family the burden. Preplan your funeral today

“I feel better knowing these decisions are all made ahead of time.”

It’s not scary! That’s the message funeral director James Beaton tries to get across to people when he meets with them at Legacy Funeral Chapels.

The process is actually pretty painless — after you get over the discomfort of thinking about your own mortality. Whether you want to face it or not, you’re going to die – everyone does! – and from that point onward, someone else makes all the decisions. Why not put in your two cents when you’ve got the opportunity?

Ron Hogan of Lunds, Wisconsin, sat down with James to complete the free preplanning consultation available through Legacy Funeral Chapels. Ron believed it was important to make the funeral process easier for his family when the time comes.

“Now they know what I want, and they won’t have to worry about it,” Ron said. “The staff from Legacy made it easy to do and even came to my home to discuss all the options I had. I feel better knowing these decisions are all made ahead of time.”

Like Ron, you too can be confident knowing your funeral service will be a true reflection of how you want to be remembered.

When people don’t preplan a funeral, families are left guessing. They don’t always know they’re putting together the farewell a loved one would have wanted. The uncertainty can eat away at them.

Save your loved ones this anxiety by taking advantage of the preplanning services offered by Legacy Funeral Chapels of Green Bay and Gillett.
No, it’s not a fun topic, but once you’ve put together a plan, it’s out of the way. You can live your life knowing you’ve eased the burden of your family in the days following your death, when their grief and emotional stress can be immense. Look at it as a gift you can give your family.
There’s no “right time” to preplan a funeral. Get the ball rolling by making the basic decisions regarding the type of service you’d like, the cemetery for internment and a preferred church or other venue.

You’ll also want to consider how to pay for your funeral.

“Funding a funeral is a good idea if you are in the position to do so,” advises Legacy Funeral Chapels Director James Beaton.”It’s a conversation we have. But if money isn’t there, at least we know what you want.”

Don’t be afraid to have this once-in-a-lifetime conversation. Contact James Beaton at Legacy Funeral Chapels in Green Bay (920-498-1118) or Gillett (920-855-2144) or email info@legacyfuneralchapels.com today for more information and to schedule a free consultation.
