Create a Great Funeral Day


The 14th annual Create a Great Funeral Day is on October 30.  This day was registered by Stephanie West Allen to remind people to consider the many benefits of creating your own funeral or memorial service.

Why should you be the one to make these plans?  Planning your own funeral will relieve those you leave behind of making these decisions in their time of grief.  You will also be creating an event that truly reflects your life and gives the bereaved satisfaction of knowing they are carrying out your final wishes.  And this gentle reminder of mortality will certainly affect the decisions you make today and in the future.
