Why should I leave written instructions about my final ceremonies and the disposition of my body?
It's not uncommon for my clients to leave a letter of instruction. Which is an informal document that's not legal. Where they explain how they would like for their funeral services to be conducted, in similar instructions now one can also put those in the will. However, by putting them in the letter of instruction you're able to put it in your own words and also, it's not public its private. Whereas the will is a public document, it's one of the best things you can do for your survivors is to take that pressure off because they're still in the process of grieving. So, if one has a prepaid funeral and has made arrangements ahead of time whether by letter of instruction in the will or by contracts. It's one of the best things that you can do you.
