Your Family’s Wishes vs. Your Wishes

One of the primary benefits to planning your own funeral is having the ability to make your wishes known. Your family, no doubt, wants to honor you by fulfilling your final wishes, and preplanning allows you to communicate those desires to them clearly. If for any reason, there could be a disagreement in the family about your wishes, preplanning with us – the top funeral home choice for those in Astoria and greater Queens – makes sure your wishes are followed as much as possible.

Here are three ways prearranging with Farenga Funeral Home will put you in the driver’s seat:

1.) You have the ability to discuss all of the options available to you, in depth, with one of our prearrangement counselors.

You may come here to our beautiful, comfortable facility to plan, or if you’d prefer, we can come to your home. Just let us know what is most comfortable for you. Either way, you’ll be armed with all the information you’ll need to make the best decision for you.

2.) You can choose, for yourself, whether you want to be buried traditionally or cremated.

While cremation is becoming more and more popular, for some people, there are still cultural and religious considerations to weigh. Don’t leave any doubt for your loved ones about what you want.

3.) Your funeral can reflect who you were – not who other people thought you were.

Hate the idea of your service having a lot of fanfare? Plan an intimate gathering for friends and family with minimal music or tributes. On the other hand, if you want to use your service to share a message with the world about who you were, we can make that happen for you. The experienced staff at Farenga Funeral Home can help you plan every last detail – from the music, to the eulogy, to more personalized aspects like a dove release or religious elements.

At Farenga Funeral Home, we do encourage you to discuss all of these decisions with your family. But ultimately, you need to choose what brings you peace of mind. By preplanning with Farenga, you can rest assured knowing your wishes will be heard and every detail handled.
