It is such a relief to be prepared before there’s a death in the family. Sure, when someone dies, you’re sad, but you don’t have to be extra-stressed on top of grief. That’s why preneed funeral planning is such a gift.
The first episode of the TV interview series A Good Goodbye: Funeral Planning for Those Who Don’t Plan to Die looks at the many elements of preneed funeral planning. Guests Barbara Stewart and Mark Ballard, both with FRENCH Funerals-Cremations, join host Gail Rubin to talk about how to make the funeral planning process easier by planning ahead.
FRENCH has an online pre-planning form where people in Albuquerque and Rio Rancho can take their time exploring different options and selecting the best arrangements to fit preferences and budgets.
Funeralwise.com, with “Everything you need to know about funerals and planning,” has an online planner that anyone in the country can access for free to get a “quick plan” estimate of high and low range costs in four simple steps. In this video from A Good Goodbye TV, you can get a sense of funeral cost price ranges. You’ll see how easy it is to put more detailed wishes on file as well. Gail shares examples of her own plans.
