Funeral planning

Funeral planning is the practice of preparing for a loved one's funeral or memorial service. These arrangements can be made in advance, or the family can make them at the time of death. Many people don't realize just how many steps go into the funeral planning process until they're confronted with it after a loved one's death, so it's smart to talk about your wishes with your loved ones before the time comes.
