Although it can be a tough discussion to have, pre-planning is the best way to ensure your wishes are known, and even paid in advance, so they can be acted upon when the time comes.
Pre-planning is a thoughtful gesture to those you love, relieving your family members of making very personal decisions on your behalf during a difficult time. It’s about peace of mind.
The Erie Cemetery Association’s part in this process is to assist you in choosing grave or columbarium space. Whether you’re choosing cremation or full burial, each of our three cemeteries offers many options from which to choose.
A licensed funeral home will help create an overall funeral plan with you now, and will be a resource you can trust and depend on when a death occurs. At that time, the funeral director carries out your family’s plan, giving you the time to grieve, to help others grieve, and yet allow you to be party to the decisions you wish to be.
