FUNERAL PLANNING

Making Arrangements


Planning a funeral can be very stressful, and will wear you down mentally.  It really relieves the stress if you are prepared, it sure helps to have a plan in place.  If you find yourself overwhelmed with grief, sometimes it helps to have someone help you with critial decisions.

First, consult the will of the deceased to learn of any prior arrangements that they may have in place such as;  cemetery plots, vault, mausoleum, crypt or cremation.  Find out if there have already been prior arrangements for the services.

Next, be sure to notify family members, friends, and out of state relatives.  Don't forget to inform an employer or fellow employees.  It is always a good idea to notify the family doctor to make sure that any prescriptions can be cancelled.  And lastly, you will have to inform the church where the service will be and the insurance company.  Sometimes the funeral director will help you make the call to the insurance company and provide you with the documents needed.

There Are Ways To Save Money


These are real trying times in our society right now.  By saving money on funeral services does not cheapen the event.  You just might be surprised at the way people notice the personal touches instead.  Toledo Plots would also like to help you find the perfect cemetery plot.  We have many people that have pre-owned cemetery plots, crypts, vaults, and mausoleums at reduced prices.  These people purchased these and for whatever reason no longer need or want them.  This could help you with the final cost.  Be sure to check out what is available in the Toledo Ohio area and browsing the pre-owned cemetery plots by section and price.



What Are Your Rights


A common misconception that people often have when they purchase the right of internment in a cemetery is that they have purchased the land itself, when in fact what they have really purchased is the right to be interred (also referred to as buried, entombed, enniched or placed) on or in that particular piece of property.
