After my father died my mother said she didn't want us to have to go through all that again when she died. Some months later she and my brother went to the funeral home and pre planned her funeral. This can be done at any time and can be changed, for instance later my mother decided that the viewing would be in the chapel of the senior citizen residence prior to the funeral mass. I believe they paid for the casket and some services in advance. This was nine years before my mother died.
