Oak Park strives to meet each client’s personal needs, while providing compassion and understanding. Oak Park Hills Chapel features complete funeral services, including memorial services, burial, entombment and cremation services in the East Bay. And now, Oak Park Hills Chapel would like to talk about the importance of planning ahead for a funeral.
"Funeral planning is a logical and important extension of planning your estate," Brad Magleby of Oak Park Hills Chapel said. "We would like to help you organize your records for your survivors and guide you through pre-planning a funeral with burial or cremation arrangements."
The East Bay funeral arrangement professionals at Oak Park Hills Chapel explain the top three reasons everyone should pre-plan his or her funeral:
1)Ensures their wishes will be fulfilled. The wishes of the departed should always be paramount and by pre-planning this gives the person the ability to put their wishes in writing. The client can take all the time necessary to make the best decisions about the type of ceremony, and burial or cremation procedures preferred.
2)Leaves enough time to make smart decisions. By discussing plans in advance, a carefully pre-planned funeral or memorial service can be discussed and all the right decisions can be made.
3)Spares grieving family members the responsibility of making decisions. This will eliminate the family from trying to figure out what the decadent would have wanted for their final arrangements and not have to add further strain during the grieving process.
"In addition, it gives the peace of mind of knowing they've acted in accordance with your wishes. We encourage you to discuss your thoughts and decisions with your family and with one of our funeral-services professionals," Magleb said.
Services at Oak Park Hills Chapel are tailored to celebrate life. Oak Park believes the wonderful years a person has lived far outweigh the finality of death. Accordingly, its funeral plans seek to ease the grief of those surviving through the remembrance and the celebration of a life well lived.
