Get Ready for Spring
For many of us, it seems like Spring will never get here. Luckily, it’s right around the corner. With that in mind, this edition of the Word to the Wise Newsletter features information to help you spruce up after a long winter. Whether it’s dusting off your funeral plan or clearing out items you no longer need, this is the perfect time to take a fresh look at what’s important to you.
UPDATE YOUR FUNERAL PLAN
There’s no time like the present when it comes to updating your Funeral Plan. You may not need to make any big changes, but your preferences may have changed since the last time you looked at your plan.
Don’t forget that having a plan is just the first step. You need to make sure that your loved ones know you have a plan and are aware of your wishes. If you haven’t had “the talk,” set aside time to bring your family up-to-date on how you’d like your end of life affairs handled.
TAKE CARE OF YOUR HEART
Each year, the American Heart Association sets aside the month of February to remind people of the importance of heart health. The commemorative month is intended to draw attention to preventative steps you can take. Special attention is given to what women need to know about heart health.
We encourage you to take care of your heart not just in February, but all year long. To learn more about how you can take care of your heart visit the Heart Association website.
PAPER VERSUS ONLINE PLANNING
At Funeralwise, we’re partial to using online tools for funeral planning. That’s why we developed The Wise Planning System. But for many people, paper just works better. If you prefer to do your planning via hard copy, we’ve got tools for you too.
Our Funeral Planning Checklist and Form is a comprehensive paper form that will help you gather the information you need so that your loved ones know exactly what you want when the time comes. The completed form can also be used as a resource when attending an Arrangement Conference with a funeral director.
Have you thought about who is going to have to deal with all the “stuff” you leave behind? We have. That’s why our latest forums post focuses on choosing a decluttering method.
We explore three popular ways to start the process of cleaning out your stuff so that your loved ones won’t have to. We’ll be featuring additional articles on this topic in months to come since we all need a little help when it comes to simplifying.
NEW STORE ITEMS
We are always on the lookout for the unique high quality memorial items to help commemorate a life well lived in a unique and personal way.
We’ve recently added many new urns and keepsakes for both people and pets to our store.
We encourage you to take a look to see the type of items we feature. While you may not be shopping right now, we hope that you’ll think of us when you have the need.
