"Now What? Planning for the Inevitable"
The best gift you can give your children during your lifetime is your unconditional love. The second best gift is to plan for your death. Yet there seems to be a growing perception that a funeral or memorial service is unnecessary. It's easy to say, "Oh, don't make a fuss. I don't want a ceremony. Just bury me and be done with it" or "it's just a waste of good money." But it is important to realize that the ritual of a funeral service isn't for the deceased but for the living. It is a time when friends and family can gather together to grieve openly and to provide support for one another.

Funeral Pre–Planning Consultation
Pre-planning your own funeral ceremony is a legacy you leave to your family so they don't have to make the many difficult decisions often associated with a funeral while in the midst of their grief.
Today pre-planning your own funeral ceremony is as essential as having a will. As one 90 year old remarked, "It's not that I want to die anytime soon or am ghoulish, it has to do with independence and unless I tell my kids what I want at my funeral how will they know."
I will walk you through a funeral planning tool checklist which includes a list of over 80 Decisions, Choices and Things To Do following the death of a loved one.
Included in the Fee:
Two hours of in-person Consultation in your home
Assistance in ceremony selections
A final copy of your plan
Travel time and costs to and from planning meetings
Not Included in the Fee:
G.S.T. @ 5%
