Try to pre-plan your own funeral arrangements. Many people say they want to but few actually do. A research study by the Funeral and Memorial Information Council said “69 percent of adults over the age of 40 indicated they would prefer to pre-arrange their own service; however, only 17 percent had made arrangements.”
Married or not married this is helpful because you will know that it’s taken care of and there will be less stress for everyone involved. Check out cemeteries and funeral homes to check out pricing and planning options. Don’t be afraid to take advantage of experts.
Talk about last wishes with people you trust, whether friends or siblings. Have a discussion about how you would like to be remembered.
