Peace of Mind
any who have undergone the emotional strain of arranging a funeral within hours of losing a loved one have made the choice to pre-plan their own funeral. Doing so lifts the burden from their loved ones by relieving decision-making pressure at a time of grief and emotional stress. The James family will continue to serve families for many years to come, and we encourage you to plan your funeral arrangements in advance. As this will help to ensure that nothing is forgotten and most importantly that good decisions are made rather than emotional ones. So if you haven't made your funeral arrangements yet, you owe it to your family to do it now.
uneral arrangements are a deeply personal choice. Pre-planning provides you with the time needed to make practical, detailed decisions that reflect your standards, lifestyle, taste and budget. We are committed to supporting our families during their time of grief, with the recognition that all grief is personal and specific to each individual. We can help to create a meaningful tribute to the person that has passed away and will support any appropriate request to commemorate the life that has been lived. We acknowledge that we cannot make the pain go away, but through our efforts we can make the journey of grief a little easier to cope with and perhaps less lonely.
hen you finalize your plan, we can advise you of the total cost. You do not have to set aside funds for your plan, but doing so protects you against escalating funeral costs in the future. By locking in today's funeral costs and ensuring that the necessary funds are set aside, you help relieve yourself of unnecessary future worry and your survivors of an unexpected expense.
