You might have heard about prearranged funerals, but did you know that you can also prearrange a memorial? Prearranging a memorial for yourself or for your whole family ensures that your specific instructions will be carried out, and most importantly, it takes the burden of making decisions on your behalf away from loved ones at a difficult and emotional time. Prepaying the memorial means you pay today's price for your memorial, and it will be there for you and your family when the time comes.
