OPEN TO DISCUSSION
As old taboos fall away and people become more accustomed to talking about issues that previous generations might have avoided, increasing numbers of individuals are feeling more comfortable about discussing death and funerals. By preplanning their own funerals, thoughtful individuals assure themselves of the peace of mind that comes with knowing their wishes have been made known and that the details will be taken care of. Those who make advance plans can draw great comfort from the fact that their loved ones will not have to make important decisions during the emotional turmoil that often accompanies initial grief. From a practical standpoint, funeral preplanning also controls the cost of the funeral and protects insurance payouts to beneficiaries.
For the same reasons you write a will or buy life insurance, people feel that it is a good idea to prepare for the future and make their own, personal plans. At the time of an actual funeral, most decisions need to be made within a few hours. By preplanning the service options, you can take your time and make the decisions in an unhurried and thoughtful way. To learn more about our services, please call JAMES H. DELANEY & SON FUNERAL HOME at 668-1960. We invite you to tour our home at 48 Common Street, where we have been faithfully serving our community for over four decades.
