Funeral & Memorial Planning
One of the last things people consider planning for, if at all, are end of life decisions that will have to be made by loved ones after their passing. However, if asked, you would probably have some definite opinions on what you would like done. In addition, most people have no concept of the cost of memorial and burial arrangements and have not made provision in their estate planning. Considering all these things ahead of time is wise.
