The first step to planning ahead is putting your wishes in writing. Your plan should clearly state where important documents such as life insurance policies, birth certificates, marriage license, military records, and credit obligations can be found. Your file should also contain important biographical information for the obituary notice. All this information saves your family time and added stress. Having all of this information in one place is of tremendous assistance to the family, and it is a gift of love only you can give. Your plan will also include your preferences for funeral services--whether you want a traditional or non-traditional service. You can include your preference for flowers, music, readings, even down to the type of casket you'd like. Contact Olson to help you complete your written plan and keep it on file at the funeral home in case of emergency.
