Preplanning services have become more and more prevalent as people age. Preplanning allows you to ensure your wishes will be carried out after death by planning for funeral arrangements and making decisions ahead of time, sparing loved ones from making tough choices at a time of grief. Planning can include funeral options, music selection and burial options. You can even refund expenses by depositing money into a trust or an escrow account – it is wise to ask questions when considering funeral homes that provide these services before selecting one.

Preplanning allows you to choose between traditional burial or cremation, the type of casket or urn you want, the plot that suits your wishes, and any additional details you’d like included. Leave instructions for who should deliver a eulogy at your funeral service. It is wise to visit multiple funeral homes before making a final decision and ensure they provide a variety of choices.

A Pellerin funeral home can help you plan the service, memorial, or viewing you’d like. They can arrange transport of your remains to where it takes place, host receptions afterward, and provide monuments or headstones for gravesites. Their staff can answer any queries about funeral arrangements while explaining each option available to you.

If you are a military member, be sure to reach out to your Pellerin funeral home as soon as possible to see if there are any special arrangements they have in place for veterans. Many funeral homes provide military honors as part of their services while also being helpful with the paperwork needed for receiving veterans’ benefits.

A Pellerin funeral home can also assist in planning virtual services, which is ideal for those living outside their local area or are physically unable to travel.

Losing someone you care for can be emotionally draining. Whether planning or attending, funerals offer an opportunity to pay your respects and show our condolences. Still, as is valid with any ceremony, specific considerations must be considered to show proper sensitivity. Express your sympathies without making things worse by airing grievances or saying something that could upset family members further; be mindful of seating arrangements which may differ depending on what service type you select; also, keep seating arrangements in mind as this could vary according to service type chosen.
