Instructions (read first)The planning worksheets listed below (organized into 5 sections for a total of 10 worksheets) are several pages each to give you space to describe your fancy funeral in extravagant detail. Feel free to cross out items or skip sections that aren't relevant to your funeral goals. I recommend printing out only one or two worksheets at a time so you don't get overwhelmed with paper. If you only want to record the basics, you can use the Quick-Plan Worksheet, listed on the bottom of this page.
