August is National Make-A-Will Month!

You may not know this, but August is National Make-A-Will Month.

Making a will is important so that your family and friends won’t have to be left second-guessing your final wishes in the event of your death. When you make a will, you are able to plan out where your money, possessions, and estate will go.

The death of avant-garde rocker Prince is a cautionary tale of what happens when you don’t draft a will. When Prince passed away in April, he unfortunately didn’t have a will for family and friends.

Just as making a will is important in planning ahead, so is planning a funeral. When you put together a will or preplan a funeral, it lessens the stress for your family and friends. Instead of having to sit down with lawyers and worry about honoring your final wishes, the family is able to have time to mourn. Prearranging a funeral is also more financially beneficial for relatives. Markwell Funeral Home allows you to lock in today’s funeral costs to protect you against inflation.

So when you’re recognizing National Make-A-Will Month this month by putting together a will, also consider planning ahead with your funeral arrangements to diminish worries for you and your family members in the event of your death. Give yourself and your loved ones the peace of mind that comes with making arrangements ahead of time.
