Plan Now, For Later

Life changed during the pandemic. Because grieving is something we do together, it has been challenging to observe services in time-honored ways with numerous safety precautions in place. We all missed hugs.

“Emotions aren’t easily postponed,” says Charles Dannel, owner of Dannel Funeral Home in Sherman. “And you can achieve closeness, even with social distancing. Families want to honor their loved ones, and the need for support that thoughtful services with family and friends provide never lessened.”

As we emerge from recent challenges, there is more clarity about priorities and what’s most important. It’s a good time to set your mind at ease by pre-planning your own funeral and relieving your family of having to make preparations during an emotional time.

The pre-planning process isn’t difficult and can be done safely in person or online through Dannel Funeral Home, where knowledgeable professionals will assist you with arrangements that are meaningful, as well as affordable. The more you know, the more comfortable you’ll be making necessary plans now, while you can talk with family and make important decisions that will have lasting impact.

One of the most frequent questions about pre-planning is what happens if you move to another city. Your arrangements are transferable, so another funeral home will honor your plan. Additionally, you have payment options. Costs are frozen, even if the service is paid out in installments. (Funeral costs, like most other services, rise over time.) The document is amendable as well.

So, what are you waiting for? Pre-planning is a much-appreciated gift you leave behind for your family. Like all that you taught them. All the love that you shared. And all the laughter you generated.
