Pre-Planning For Your Loved One’s Sake

cremation services in St. Charles, MO

No one likes to think about their own death. But death is a part of life and everyone alive today will someday pass on. While you may not care what happens after you pass on, it’s still important to think about those details. Why? Because they matter to your loved ones—the people you will leave behind. So even if you don’t really care what happens when you pass on, planning your own cremation services in St. Charles, MO for the sake of those you love is a very nice thing to do. Here are a few reasons why that’s the case.


Reason 1: They Have No Plans To Make

Think back to the last time you lost someone close to you. It was emotionally taxing, even if you had no plans to make on their behalf. Add into those emotions and the stress having to make plans for that person as well and it can be too much for anyone. You want the best for your loved ones and when you plan your own services in advance, you are giving them a nice, final gift. They have no plans to make when you pass on. All they have to do is call the cremation provider you have chosen, and your plans take motion. They are free to spend time with family and mourn you, as they need to do.


Reason 2: They Have Peace Of Mind

There’s something to be said about having peace of mind around someone’s death. It can be very hard to grasps the ‘whys’ in life. While you can’t give them those answers, you can give them peace of mind that they are following your cremation service plans. They know what you wanted, and they don’t have to guess at it. Knowing they are giving you honorable services that you appreciate (because you set them up yourself) can go a long way to giving them peace over the situation.


Reason 3: They Don’t Have Cost Burdens

While it’s not mandatory, you can also pay for your services in advance, if you please. Doing so relieves your loved ones of another burden—the cost burden. They don’t have to plan, and they don’t have to pay. Plus, when you pay ahead of time, you get today’s prices instead of whatever they might be in the future, which can save you quite a bit of money. You can use the extra money to pass along more to family members, which is another nice thing for them in the future.

    […] If you have lost a family member yourself, you can support the cremation service by sending the person in charge of the arrangements some money to go toward the cremation, or the following memorial, if they are doing something. You are able to chip in, support your family, and help with the overall costs. If your money isn’t needed for the service, it can be donated to a charity that meant a lot to that person instead. But even just making the offer to help pay for things is a nice way to support those who are heading up the service plans. […]
