3 Reasons to Consider Pre-Arranging

Handing Over to Next Generation

As our families grow up and get older, we do the same. We watch as our children turn into adults before our eyes, starting families of their own. This is the time to relax and enjoy the years of hard work you’ve put in to create a better future for your family. This is also the time to start thinking about preparing your family for the day when you won’t be around for them anymore.

Men and women all over the country prepare for this day by putting together a will. You can help your family even more by pre-arranging your funeral. Losing a loved one that has served as family head, such as a parent or grandparent, is tragic for any family. Pre-arranging helps you and your family in a number of ways, including:

  1. Organizing your funeral service
    Many families follow religious or spiritual beliefs or traditions regarding their funeral service. By pre-arranging your funeral, you can ensure that your beliefs or desires will be met. You can plan your funeral to run the way you’d like it to, taking the burden away from family members who may not know what you would have wanted.

  2. Taking care of payment
    Paying for a funeral service can quickly become expensive, something your loved ones may not be equipped to handle. Many families spend between $6,000 and $10,000 for a funeral service, but you can lessen the financial woes by pre-arranging your funeral. Planning and paying for the services before they are needed will help your family in their time of grief.

  3. Reducing stress
    Losing a loved one is stressful enough—but having to plan a funeral can just add to the stress. Pre-arranging your funeral will give your family some relief and comfort after their loss.

At Skylawn Memorial Park, we can help you pre-arrange your funeral and protect your family from future stress and worries. Our San Mateo funeral home also offers a variety of burial and cremation services to meet the needs of all traditions and preferences. Call us today at (650) 349-4411 to learn more.

Planning a Funeral Service

Burning Candle

When a loved one passes on, it can be difficult for life to return to normal. Planning a funeral service can easily be the last thing on anyone’s mind during this period, but it’s important for a number of reasons. Funerals serve as a way to say goodbye to our loved ones, and is a time when all friends, family members, and other guests can come together, remember who they lost, and share fond memories.

Grief and other negative feelings associated with loss are normal reactions. Finding support in close friends and family can help by showing you that you’re not alone. Working together to plan the funeral service makes it a much more positive experience, letting you enjoy your memories with loved ones instead of dwelling on them alone. These steps will help you plan a funeral service for your loved one:

  • Meet with friends and family
    Let more people be involved with the service—this will make you feel supported during your time of grief. You can also discuss specific arrangements that may have been requested by the deceased.

  • Speak with funeral home staff
    As your loved one’s final resting place, it’s important that you choose a beautiful and inviting funeral service and burial location. Contact different homes in your area and ask staff about their services. Keep positive memories of your loved one in mind in order to create a truly special and honorable service.

  • Choose speakers
    Many people pick religious figures to conduct the service, but it all depends on your own personal preferences and beliefs. You’ll also want to choose someone to give a eulogy and other additional speakers you may want.

At San Mateo’s Skylawn Memorial Park, we want to help make this stressful time more relaxing by creating a peaceful, memorable funeral or memorial service for your loved one. Visit us online or call us at (650) 349-4411 to learn more.
