Why are people afraid to talk about funeral arrangements before they die?
We all know we are going to die at some point or another..so why not do pre-arrangements? Why not get that out of the way and have not only your mind at rest but for your family and friends?
I think that if they are in the right frame of mind, most people will make funeral arrangements. For those that don't, it may be due to an illness or they do not have the capacity to think these things through. Pre-planning takes decisions and thought, so if a person is not up for that it may not happen.
Case in point is my mother-in-law who for the past year was unable to make decisions due to an illness. The children did the preparations as her life drew to an end. Also I believe in some cultures, it may be bad luck to do so since some may believe, they can be cured.
There are many reasons why people do not pre-plan. Depending on their circumstances and support from family may depend on whether or not this happens.
Planning your funeral in advance can bring peace of mind and financial security. Choosing to take out a 'pre-paid' or pre-payment' funeral plan can alleviate any worries that your relatives may have about the financial aspect. By making your preferences known, you can relieve the stress of your family having to make difficult decisions, and help them to achieve a fitting tribute in your memory.
Organising a funeral may seem stressful but you can make the plan as simple or complex as you want.

True, people think if they don't do the arrangements they won't die or are afraid that they will dieIt is important to prepare ourselves and best we do it as we don't know what people will decide, doesn't matter once you r dead..but easier for those living if we have it all done..don't you think so?

What did you think about when you thought you were going to die?I'm sure there are many of us who have felt sure we were at the end of our lives for some reason or another. I'm not concerned with why you felt this way, just what you were thinking.

Are you afraid to die?I read a survey that most people are NOT afraid to die. Some people are not afraid of death itself but of how they are going to die, like afraid of painful, tortuous death. Some people are not afraid to die because they believe in life after death. What about...
