Affordable Funerals Network Invites the Public to a Free Pre-Planning Expo with Complimentary Meal

Whether it is planning for college, a wedding or other significant life event, making arrangements ahead of time reduces stress and provides peace of mind. The same idea applies to funeral pre-planning. While people may hesitate to discuss it, conversations about the inevitable make some of the hardest times for many families a little bit easier. Affordable Funeral Networks, a web-based association of family-owned funeral homes across the country, is partnering with Global Atlantic Financial Group and Evins, Larry and Perry Family Funeral Home to ease the burden and help families plan ahead. According to research, making funeral arrangements ahead of time can lower the cost by 30 to 40 percent and help prevent families from paying for services they don’t actually need. The groups are teaming up to host an informative and free Pre-need Funeral Planning Expo in Jennings and Oakdale, La. The public is invited to attend the event and enjoy a free lunch or dinner on Friday, May 18, at 12:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. at The Grand Marais (919 N Lake Arthur Ave in Jennings) or on Saturday, May 19, at 12:30 p.m. at Cafe on 10th (132 S 10th St. in Oakdale). Attendees will learn about pre-need insurance, financial planning, life insurance, VA benefits, wills, trusts and more. In addition, guests will have the chance to receive a free casket worth hundreds of dollars when they sign up for immediate or pre-need funeral services. Because seating is limited, those who plan to attend must RSVP by May 11 on (844) 200-4526. “During this seminar, we will provide guests with information that will help them make an informed and intelligent decision about funeral arrangements,” said Ashley Jackson, COO of Affordable Funerals Network. “Funerals are incredibly difficult for a family to go through, as they are faced with making hard decisions during a time that’s already fraught with difficulties. We are happy to provide the local community with helpful information that can prevent the kind of financial burden that often accompanies an unplanned funeral.”
