Funeral Pre-Planning can be considered a taboo and a highly rejected topic for conversation, especially in a society as superstitious and pragmatic like Singapore. Some feel that it is unnecessary to bring up subject matters that do not seem relevant at this point in their lives.
It is however, very important to start planning at an earlier stage in life to reap its full benefits:
- Ensuring that the deceased’s special requests are met without uncertainty
- Ensuring that the bereaved family does not overspent on fear of not having done enough for the deceased
- Ensuring that procedures and specific elements of the funeral are decided without distractions or hesitations
- Organising a funeral that is specific to your requirements without having to spend too much
Preparing and Organising for the deceased’s funeral with confidence
Organising a funeral for your loved one with prior planning equates to a better prepared, more specialised and meaningful commemoration of your loved one. Pre-planning usually involves the individual sounding out his/her vision and portrayal of how they want their funeral to be conducted. It is important that the special requests of the deceased be met as a symbol of respect, as well as act as the family’s last gesture for the dearly departed.
It is crucial to make known special instructions as part of the funeral pre-planning process, so that your family members will be well informed and familiarised with the necessary arrangements that has to be made. It is with pre-planning that the parties who are involved in the organising process can make decisions on your behalf with confidence.
Lifting the weight of stress and grief off the family members, who will be going through an extremely difficult time of loss, is preferred especially when such situations can be avoided with the simple act of pre-planning.
Importance of making decisions with a clear mind
Decisions regarding the funeral services of a loved one and the organising of the funeral procedures accentuates the level of regard and respect the family members have for their loved one. Ideally, the funeral ceremony should be one that best represents the deceased’s personality and character traits, and should be one that is carried out to the liking of the deceased.
The passing of a loved one is a difficult period of grief and loss for family members and friends. It is important that family members do not make decisions that is skewed and misaligned with how the deceased envisioned themselves to be glorified. Hence, pre-planning is always advisable.
An affordable Funeral Service that is specialised and memorable
A dignified and worthy enough funeral ceremony for your loved one need not be expensive. Having a specific idea of how your loved one will want their send off to look like will be essential in saving on unnecessary costs. Ultimately, the funeral arrangements should be one that is special yet not overspent on – in fear of not having done enough for your loved one.
