Pre-arrangement counselors with heart
Meet Mary and Nicole, pre-arrangement counselors at Kane & Fetterly funeral home in Montreal. They explain why Kane & Fetterly has been successful in establishing a tradition of personal service and care in arranging funeral services in advance (pre-arrangements).
You might be wondering… “Why should I make funeral pre-arrangements? Is it affordable?” At Kane & Fetterly, we do everything we can to make the process as easy as possible. There are 3 points to consider:
1 Many people make funeral pre-arrangements
They plan in advance their funeral wishes or those of someone else. Some people chose to plan all the details in advance; others prefer to make basic choices, leaving some options for their family. The majority of people pre-pay for all services, thus sparing their families from all financial burden at the time of their passing.
2 This is why people pre-arrange
Over the years we have observed that women are those who start the process in the family. Usually the spouse follows along. They pre-arrange because they want to eliminate the emotional burden on their family, especially their children. They want to make things easier for them by sparing their family to make difficult decisions at the time of their passing.
The majority of men pre-arrange because they want to eliminate the financial burden on their spouse making provision of the funds in advance.
In any case, the motivations to pre-arrange a funeral are personal and vary from one situation to another.
3 Funeral pre-arrangements are affordable
The cost of a pre-arrangement comes down to the choices you and your family make when planning the funeral. Different payment plans are available to suit all budgets.
