Regardless of the circumstances, a death in the family is a stressful ordeal. To relieve your loved ones of a difficult burden, you can make your own funeral arrangements. You should inform your family of the arrangements you have made (burial, cremation, location, etc.).
Good funeral homes can also settle all the details and inform you of the costs. If you have life insurance, the insurance benefit paid at death can be used to pay for funeral expenses.
