Questions and answers.
Your family is everything. So the last thing you’d want is to put them in a difficult position. A time of loss is a time of confusion, but your final arrangements don’t have to add to the uncertainty. Pre-planning your cemetery services can save your loved ones from having to make decisions while they’re grieving. And they won’t have to guess what you’d want. It’s simply the right thing to do. Consider the following questions you might get when you broach the subject of pre-planning with your family.
- Why are you considering pre-planning?
- How would you like your family to be involved in the process?
- Now that we know your wishes, what should we do next?
- Does this mean you anticipate needing a funeral soon?
Here are a few common reasons people pre-plan. These benefits could help guide your conversation.
- Even if it’s far into the future, you’ll assure that a difficult time is less stressful for your loved ones.
- When everything is determined in advance, families can focus on celebrating life, knowing that last wishes are perfectly fulfilled.
- Planning a funeral can require over 150 decisions, and making those choices now, together, can be an experience that brings families closer.
- Some people go so far as to pre-pay, and this is a gift to loved ones, because funerals often come at unexpected times. This act unburdens family members from what can be a sudden expense.

Just like other open spaces, cemeteries have been impacted by the sheer number of people on our planet. However, funeral homes and local cemeteries can always help you find the space you need, so don’t ever feel that there is not an option to meet your needs. Meadowbrook Memory Gardens has sufficient space for generations to come.
In short, Endowment Care refers to the funds that keep the cemetery grounds beautiful and well-kept, ensuring that your loved one will be taken care of each and every day over the long term. Once the service is over and those in attendance have left the grounds, we want to ensure that peacefulness and beauty are permanent parts of our grounds and Endowment Care makes this possible.
