How to Ensure Your Funeral is Done Your Way

The average American funeral today can cost more than $10,000, and a cemetery burial adds even more. Instead of burdening loved ones to make uninformed financial decisions while under duress, take the time now to plan ahead to help your family know exactly what your wishes are. Lee Webster, director of New Hampshire Funeral Resources, Education and Advocacy, will present a free program Wednesday, Feb. 25 at 10 a.m. in Taylor Community’s Woodside Building, covering the following topics, among others:

  • Planning for your last wishes to be carried out
  • Your family’s legal rights and responsibilities
  • Making a funeral meaningful without breaking the bank
  • Getting only the services you need you need and want from the funeral director
  • Integrating home funeral care with religious or spiritual beliefs
  • Home funeral and green burial options

Webster is also president of the National Home Funeral Alliance and sits on the board of the Green Burial Council. She is a home funeral guide, conservationist, writer and speaker from the Lakes Region. To RSVP for the event, please call 524-5600.
