- Ramona Sousa


“Preplanning, I definitely suggest to people to do.”

“When Ray passed away, I knew that everything was taken care of. So it was just a matter of coming in here and getting the final arrangements.”

“I was actually quite grateful when I saw the format, um, particularly when my mom passed because she never really shared much with us. And so it was a great guideline to be able to go by.”

“It was, um, really a gift that she gave to us, um, long in advance of her passing. And then when she did pass, we were the benefactors of her wise planning and her diligence and her thoughtfulness in trying to ease the situation as much as she could for her family.”

“The more detailed, the more information, the easier it is.”

“Because most of the bulk of it was already preplanned, years ago, um, it made it much easier when it was getting closer to the time that my father was passing.”

“We had a very clear idea of what he wanted, which was very helpful as we sat to plan the service.”

“For me its a great – one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. And I highly encourage anybody who, um, wants to look into it, to look into it. And don’t wait till tomorrow, because tomorrow might not come.”
