Back-to-School Season Highlights Importance of Pre-Planning

When August comes around, parents and guardians often go into organization mode with the upcoming school season. What do the kids need to survive and thrive?

They may have to get the kids backpacks, crayons, pencils, pens, and new clothes to return to school fully prepared for the new year.

This is also a good way to think about the future and what you’ll leave behind for your family. Just as planning ahead is important when it comes to back-to-school season, it’s also crucial when it comes to funeral plans.

Markwell is dedicated to helping families prearrange funerals. Patrons can sit down with Markwell staff members and discuss their options, from cremation to burial plans. Not only is pre-arranging a funeral helpful to family members when it comes to knowing what the deceased would want in a personalized arrangement, but it’s also financially beneficial to everyone involved. Markwell funeral arrangements don’t have to be paid for in one lump sum and can be spread out in installments. Preplanning a funeral with Markwell freezes today’s costs to be used possibly decades in the future. (Look at how much college cost thirty years ago and think about how much you’ll save!) It also just takes the stress off of your children down the road from having to make significant decisions without you.

So when you’re pulling your shopping cart up to the checkout line and thinking about your children’s future school year this season, don’t forget about the faraway future and what you leave behind for them.
