Planning Ahead - Pre-Arrangements/Preplanning

Family Security
Thinking about your own mortality leaves most people feeling a little uneasy, but more adults are finding that by preplanning and pre-arranging for their own memorial needs offers great emotional and even financial security for them and their families. With preplanning, families find comfort in knowing that the funeral reflects what their loved one wanted.

Planning now to protect your family can help avoid the unanticipated expenses and unnecessary emotional stress the death of a loved one often brings.  Thoughtful people, like you, take the simple precautions to protect their family by purchasing life insurance, saving for retirement, a pension plan, a will and purchasing memorial property in advance, which are all important parts of that protection.

The Benefits of Planning Ahead

Planning your memorial arrangements in advance has many benefits including:
Pre-Arrangement
  • Informed decisions
  • A better choice of location
  • Ensuring your wishes are carried out to your specifications
  • Guard against the effects of inflation
  • Help lessen the stress on family members at the time of death
Difficult as it is to face the inevitable now, a greater distress would be faced by one of you alone, and perhaps a far greater distress by your loved ones, if these decisions were left to be made with no indication of your specific wishes.

The decision to preplan for your memorialization is a loving gesture for those you leave behind.  The Poughkeepsie Rural Cemetery is the preference of families who plan ahead for their eventual needs.
