Having a loved one pass can be an extremely devastating event. It’s a time for family and friends to mourn, and honor the memory of their loved one. Many during this time, often the friends or family of the deceased, are tasked with on-the-spot funeral planning processes, such as deciding where and how to intur the body, how to pay for it, scheduling out the funeral ceremony, inviting guests and all of that on top of the already enormous burden of stress from the actual loss.
Mobile Memorial Gardens Cemetery knows how much of a burden this can be. That’s why we recommend our pre-need cemetery planning option. With this option, you will be able to make all the final arrangements necessary, helping your family to eliminate the time oriented stress of last minute planning.
We understand that discussing our own mortality is a sensitive subject for many people. It’s difficult to think about, let alone plan for. However, by giving your family this option you are not only relieving them of making on the spot decisions, you’re also saving them money. Frequently, families who have planned and made arrangements ahead of time will spend less money, having already made monetary decisions, and often buying only what they precisely need. It’s also beneficial because it locks in the price. Everything tends to go up in price as inflation continues to rise, so making the arrangements prior will help to ensure you get the best price possible. At Mobile Memorial Gardens Cemetery, we also offer discounts and financing for families that choose to pre-plan, so they can make easy monthly payments instead of a large sum of cash at the time of need.
On top of the financial benefit, by pre-planning you are taking control of your own arrangements. Some have a strong preference for traditional burial or cremation, or what their memorial looks like, down to even the kind of music and readings that are done at the memorial event. Some even opt to not have a funeral ceremony at all. It’s your choice, and your final wishes will be honored. By planning these things ahead of time, your family can mourn through a meaningful and well thought out ceremony, starting the grieving process and helping them to emotionally cope with their loss sooner.
Millions of people each year have opted to plan their cemetery arrangements in advance, and if you’d like to join them, Mobile Memorial Gardens Cemetery is here to help. We offer all manner of ground burials, cremation burials, master lots, vaults and more.
