Pre-planning your funeral an important family discussion


One unfortunate result of our unwillingness to discuss death is that many families experiencing the loss of a loved one must then face the task of arranging a funeral. If a person has not made her wishes clear before death, it?'s left up to family to make those decisions, at what already is an extremely stressful and emotional time. Arlington Memorial Gardens Advisors Cindy Maril and Pete Tunnat and John Gay, managing director with Linnemann Funeral Homes, explain why pre-planning funerals is so important, and how best to start that conversation with family and friends.
