When a family suffers the loss of a loved one, about 50 difficult decisions must be made within hours, but cemetery pre-planning sets most details ahead of time and can ease much of a grieving family’s anxiety and burden associated with the difficult planning process.
“The worries of last-minute burial planning should not become part of a family’s grieving process, especially when experiencing a great deal of emotional pain and suffering from loss,” says Andrew P. Schafer, executive director of the Catholic Cemeteries of the Archdiocese of Newark. That is why Catholic Cemeteries, a ministry of the Archdiocese of Newark, regularly reaches out to families to inform them about the benefits of pre-planning, he explains. “Time and again, grieving families attest to the appreciable difference of pre-set arrangements in easing their time of loss.”
