The Comfort of Planningphoto

'Grandpa Joe's Favorite Fishing Spot'

Grandpa Joe has always been an avid fisherman and a lover of the sea. He could spend hours upon hours drifting on the waves in his fishing boat and watching the sun glisten on the Atlantic as he casts his line out again and again. In Grandpa Joe's opinion, this is the most peaceful place in the world. This is where he would spend the rest of eternity if he had the choice.

As a matter of fact, Joe knows that he wants to be cremated and have his ashes sprinkled in this very fishing spot. He also knows he wants to leave his beloved fishing boat and poles to his grandson Tommy, who loves to fish almost much as he does.

Joe doesn't want his family to have to struggle to remember his wishes when his time comes. He also doesn't want to risk his children squabbling over what he would've wanted or fret over how they're possibly going to pay for an expensive funeral. That's why he went ahead and planned his cremation arrangements with his funeral home. His family knows that when Joe passes, all they have to do is call the funeral home to set these arrangements in motion. This thought gives Grandpa Joe and his entire family a sense of comfort and peace of mind.
