Making arrangements for your own funeral may seem difficult, but more individuals are finding that preplanning a funeral offers greater emotional and financial security for themselves and their loved ones. Not only does preplanning ensure that the funeral reflects the person, but also gives families the peace of mind to not make important decisions at a stressful time.

To begin preplanning, contact funeral homes in your community. A funeral director can walk you through the prearrangement process. CLICK HERE to view a directory of LFDA member funeral homes.

The Funeral and Memorial Information Council (FAMIC) formed Have a Talk of a Lifetime which is designed to help families talk about what matters most in their lives and how loved ones have made a difference. These discussions can help families make important decisions about how they wish to remember and honor the lives of their loved ones with memorialization services in the future.
