If you ask Deacon Tony Spatafore of Visitation Catholic Church in Elmhurst why he encouraged his mother to have her funeral arrangements pre-planned, he’d tell you, “I wanted to celebrate my mother’s life. I didn’t want to get bogged down with all kinds of paperwork”. He added that it was a relief off of his shoulders to know that this very important process was taken care of with his mother’s input. When the time eventually came, Tony, an only child, didn’t have all of the sudden decisions to make when honoring his mom was the only thing that really mattered to him and his family. “It made all the difference in the world”. He highly recommends families consider Pre-Planned Funeral Arrangements.
