You can't choreograph death, but you can choreograph your funeral.

–Marina Abramovic

Let’s be honest: It’s a rare individual who enjoys thinking about their own death. We understandably prefer to focus on the present, and on living each day to the fullest.

But by planning now, you’ll take the financial burden and handle many of the decisions for your family before they need to make them during an emotional time.

Preplanning also gives you the opportunity to consider how you want to be remembered: Would you like a traditional burial, or to be cremated? What kind of monument or marker would you like, if any? Where would you like your final resting place? What would you like your memorial service to include?

All of these decisions will reflect who you are, and give your family the gift of continuity.

Our expert team is here to help guide you through the process, so please contact us to begin a consultation today.
