Pre-planning your funeral with Roller Funeral Homes is a gift to your
family and offers protection for them during one of the most difficult days in
their lives. Our professional staff can guide you through this process.
There are dozens of decisions to be made when arranging a funeral.
Now, more than ever, it is important to plan ahead because there has never been
a time when there were so many options. Dealing with government agencies
and insurance benefits can be frustrating and complicated. For example,
did you know that each year millions of dollars in government and insurance
benefits go unclaimed? It is unfortunate that many times the family does
not have the information needed to claim those benefits. Planning ahead
protects your family's long-term security and spares them this task while
trying to grieve.
Certain conversations are just uncomfortable to have - and the talk about
death is likely first on the list. There are many reasons why we avoid
discussions of death - among them:
We do not want to upset anyone. Talking about death can be
uncomfortable for everyone - and broaching it with a close loved one can be
traumatic or simply awkward.
We are unprepared to die. What will happen to your loved ones if you
die tomorrow? How will your loved ones pay for a funeral? Do you have
outstanding debts or house payments that they will have to deal with? Often, we
feel unprepared for death, and frankly embarrassed to burden our loved ones
with this lack of preparation.
We feel guilty asking others to do things for us. Talking about death
often means discussing with loved ones about how they can assist us in the event of
our death. This can lead to feelings of guilt.
We fear family arguments. What if your funeral wishes or end-of-life
decisions differ from the thoughts or beliefs of your family members? Many of
us fear that discussing so important a topic can lead to rifts with the people
We are frightened to die. Of course, many of us are uncomfortable with
the uncertainty and the finality of death. Even those of intense religious
faith may feel uncomfortable discussing their own mortality.
