The thought of pre-planning your cemetery arrangements may make you a little uneasy at first. It can be difficult to come to terms with our own mortality. We purchase various forms of insurance just in case we may need it in the future and many times we live many decades and never have a need for that protection. The end of life, however, is an absolute certainty. Anything we can do to prepare for that day should give us peace of mind and be considered an act of love for the people we leave behind.
As we live our daily lives there are characteristics about a loved one that do not cross our minds, but at the time of loss those details suddenly become very important. When you experience the loss of a spouse, for example, their favorite hymn or song may become important to you. Similarly, you will want to remember your grandmother’s favorite flower or color when she is gone. Prearranging your cemetery needs will help ensure that precious memories and wishes don’t get lost amid grief and stress at the time of death.
