Planning your own funeral is not something that you may like to think about. In fact, we’re fairly confident that, if left to your own devices, you just might choose to avoid it altogether.
But, what happens if you do? Let us say just two words: nothing good.
You’re really giving up your authority over some of the most critical decisions you would ever make in your lifetime, leaving them to be made by relatives who are caught in the emotional turmoil of grief after losing someone they loved.
When you do the right thing, and decide to make your pre-arrangements, you can do so at your own pace, when you feel calm, healthy, and rational.
We promise to make it as easy on you as possible. You can pre-arrange your funeral by calling and scheduling to visit us at the funeral home.
You can also make pre-arrangements for a loved one. If you have any questions or would prefer to speak to someone directly, please contact a NHFDA member funeral home.
Without a doubt, dying is one of the few events in life that is certain to occur. You may never marry, or have children; but without fail, one day you will take your last breath. For most of us, this is a disquieting thought. Yet it is still something you should plan for – if not for your own peace-of-mind, then for the well-being of those you’ll leave behind.
Benefits of Pre-Planning
Have you given any thought as to how you want to be remembered? Maybe you had a long career in the military that you'd like to celebrate. Maybe you love animals and would like to encourage donations in your memory to your local humane society. When you pre-arrange your funeral, you put your wishes on paper so that your loved ones will know exactly how to celebrate your life and honor your memory.

Charles de Lint, the award winning author wrote, “Every time you do a good deed you shine the light a little farther into the dark. And the thing is, when you're gone that light is going to keep shining on, pushing the shadows back.”
So, you're thinking about making your final arrangements? This checklist will help you make sure every detail is handled properly.
