Although Keenan’s words are said in jest, they also remind people that funerals are understandably stressful affairs. The last thing families need is to make crucial financial decisions while dealing with loss and grief at the same time. Fortunately, renowned mortuaries can step in with their pre-planning services, which allow people to arrange their own wake, tomb, and the like so that their loved ones wouldn’t have to deal with such concerns. Inland Memorial Inc.’s Inland Empire funeral planning services, in particular, give people the power to organize their own burial or cremation.
Pre-planning doesn’t just give people peace of mind. As Keenan implies, it’s also an opportunity for families to know exactly what they’re paying for. For instance, some pre-plans only cover funeral “merchandise” like caskets and vaults, while others pay for those and the actual burial or cremation itself.
