Planning your memorial in advance ensures that you are being remembered in your own way while protecting your loved ones.
Today, more than ever, people understand the wisdom of planning ahead by taking out insurance policies, setting aside savings and making out a will. Advance planning for a memorial is no different. In each case, it is the wisdom of planning now to make sure the future won’t be so uncertain.
There are countless good reasons for making your memorial choices ahead of time. Here are just three reasons we believe are especially important to consider.
The choice will reflect your wishes.
The memorial designers at Portage Marble & Granite are highly trained and will work with you to personalize your memorial so that it tells a story – one that reflects your life, your interests, your beliefs and your accomplishments. It is peace of mind knowing that you made the right choice for yourself and your family.
Family members won’t be left with decisions during such an emotional time.
At times of grief and loss, it can be very difficult to make important decisions. By preplanning your memorial, you are protecting your family from unnecessary stress. They aren’t left guessing what you would want and can find some comfort knowing that you selected exactly what you liked. It is one of the greatest gifts you can give your loved ones.
Save your family from any financial burdens.
No one can predict the future. Financial troubles can delay memorial purchases by families, sometimes indefinitely. Disagreements can have the same effect. Pre-planning is your protection against these uncertainties and a guarantee that your memorial will happen within a budget that you can afford. It is much easier to purchase in advance. When you purchase now, you have the option to pay for your memorial in full or schedule a payment plan that allows you to spread the cost over three years free of finance charges or interest. The price you receive will be today’s price and it is guaranteed not to increase. Naturally, you will still be able to personalize your own memorial and receive the same guaranteed quality that Portage Marble & Granite offers.
