Addressing your own mortality is never easy. However, the benefits of prearranging funeral services far outweigh the alternative, having a distraught loved one make the arrangements at the time of death. Remember, life goes on for the survivors and by preplanning you remove the burden of arranging and funding the services at the time of death.
Making funeral arrangements at the time of loss is extremely difficult for those left behind. When the funeral, and even payment, have been arranged in advance, most of the decisions have been made, sparing uncertainty and confusion at a time when emotional stress may make decisions difficult.
Would it be better in your situation to plan ahead, calmly and sensibly, when you are in a normal mental and physical state, when you have full ability to reason, and when you are able to discuss arrangements with your family?
