A FINAL ARRANGEMENTS DOCUMENT
A will isn’t a good place to express your death and funeral preferences because it is not likely to be read until several weeks after you die, when important decisions have already been made. Without a document that outlines your final decisions, your surviving relatives will be left on their own to make the difficult decisions surrounding your funeral and burial. In that case, grief-stricken family members may well choose the most expensive goods and services out of feelings of obligation. By making your own final arrangements in advance, you can relieve your family of this unnecessary stress and direct them to follow your wishes. A final arrangements document sets forth the necessary details in an accessible and appropriate manner.
Advance funeral planning has been called "a sincere act of love" because it can help ease an emotional burden from those you love. By recording your wishes, you help guide your survivors, and allow them to spend time supporting each other instead of worrying about what you would have wanted.
