How do you prepare for something that happens once every 12 years? That’s typically how often you can expect to be involved in funeral arrangements for a loved one. Planning a funeral every 12 years doesn’t allow you to become familiar with the process.
“But we do it every day,” said James Beaton, funeral director at Legacy Funeral Chapels in Gillett and Green Bay. “We help people from all walks of life. We help to create a unique and meaningful service for them.”
People in the Gillett area can get a jump start on funeral plans by attending a FREE Advance Planning Event. At the event, you will have the opportunity to learn about different funeral and memorial options and make clear and thoughtful decisions about the type of services you want.
Preplanning a funeral allows you to:
• Make our own decisions about how you want to be remembered
• Save your loved ones the stress of making decisions on-the-spot
• Meet James Beaton, funeral director at Legacy Funeral Chapels
• Make financial arrangements for the funeral
• Have the peace of mind knowing your family will be saved the burden of planning your funeral service
“We see it time and time again at the funeral home: The death of a loved one puts families under pressure. We strive to ease that pressure as we guide them through the process of funeral planning,” James said. “With advance planning, the pressure is off and there’s less burden on the family.”
Here are a couple of key questions to ponder:
What to do you want done with the remains? Burial vs. cremation/cemetery vs. mausoleum, etc.
How you want to be honored and remembered? Type and location of funeral service, officiant, music and readings choices, pallbearers, food options, personal memorabilia to display, etc. Attend the Advanced Planning Event to learn more.
