Something Else I Didn't Think I'd Have To Do Yet

Well, this year has been full of a lot of things I didn't think I'd have to do or deal with yet. On 6/22/12 I added something else to that list. I called a funeral home to look into prearranging Daron's funeral. Please don't think this means he is going to pass anytime soon. I just want to make sure that I don't have to worry about it when he does pass into glory. I have watched to many of my loved ones scramble at the last minute to pay for a funeral & I don't want to have to do that when the time comes. Honestly, I am thinking of prearranging my funeral as well so Taylor doesn't have to worry about it when he's older.

I was actually surprised at how inexpensive the how thing will be. I was sitting here thinking that I would have to spend $10,000 or more on Daron's funeral. But because Daron & I have already talked about what he wants me to do, I don't have to worry about that giant cost. I am so thankful that I made the call, but it was emotionally & mentally draining. A 30 year old wife should not have to call around for pricing for her 40 year old husbands funeral arrangements. But, the more things I do now when my brain can comprehend what I'm doing, the better. At least I will be going into this with a clear head.

After that phone call, I came to a conclusion......everyone should try to prearrange their funeral if possible. I know that people move & they aren't sure where they want their body to be buried just yet, but you should at least call around so you can start saving for it. Now that I know how much I need for Daron's funeral & that I can make payments in order to pay it off ahead of time, I know that will be one less thing to worry about when the Lord calls Daron home. Plus, I can start setting money aside for my own funeral so that Taylor won't have to scramble to get the money together when the Lord calls me home.

Ok, that's enough talk about death. :-) I just wanted to keep to the spirit of my blog - open & honest with everyone. Trust me, that is harder to do than any of you can imagine!

  1. (Like your blog redesign, by the way). That must have been hard. Glad you did it, though. You're in my prayers.
