One of the primary benefits to planning your own funeral is having the ability to make your wishes known. Your family, no doubt, wants to honor you by fulfilling your final wishes, and preplanning with Wilson St. Pierre allows you to communicate those desires to them clearly. If for any reason, there could be a disagreement in the family about the way you are to be laid to rest, preplanning with us makes sure your wishes are followed to the letter and removes that pressure off your family.
Here are three ways prearranging with Wilson St. Pierre will put you in the driver’s seat:
1.) You have the ability to discuss all of the options available to you, in depth, with Kristin St. Pierre, our prearrangement advisor.
You may come here to one of our beautiful, comfortable facilities to plan, or if you’d prefer, we can come to your home. Just let us know what is most comfortable for you. Either way, you’ll be armed with all the information you’ll need to make the best decision for you.
2.) You can choose, for yourself, whether you want to be buried traditionally or cremated.
While cremation is becoming more and more popular, for some people, there are still cultural and religious considerations to weigh. Don’t leave any doubt for your loved ones about how you feel about your final disposition.
3.) Your funeral can reflect who you were – not who other people thought you were.
Hate the idea of being laid to rest with a lot of fanfare? Plan an intimate gathering for friends and family with minimal music or tributes. On the other hand, if you want to use your service to share a message with the world about who you were, we can make that happen for you. The experienced staff at Wilson St. Pierre can help you plan every last detail – from the music, to the eulogy. You can even host a beautiful, catered event in your honor at our reception spaces.
At Wilson St. Pierre, we do encourage you to discuss all of these decisions with your family. But ultimately, you need to choose what brings you peace of mind. By preplanning with Wilson St. Pierre, you can rest assured knowing your wishes will be heard and every detail handled.
