Families plan ahead for many major events in life such as weddings, birthdays, vacations, careers, and retirement. Today, for a variety of sound reasons, more and more families are giving consideration to advanced funeral planning and the steps necessary to complete the process.



Pre-Planning

After experiencing the loss of a loved one, families become aware of the many decisions which have to be made in a short period of time under unusually stressful circumstances. To avoid this for other family members in the future and to make certain their personal wishes are understood and carried out, many people choose to plan their funeral in advance. This single decision can be a source of comfort, relief, and peace of mind for you and your entire family. Pre-planning and its many advantages are being considered by more and more families.



Pre-Arrangements

What is involved in pre-arranging one's funeral service? Step one is to gather your family together and let them know what your intentions are. Listen to their thoughts and ideas because your funeral will most directly affect your family. Next, arrange a conference with our pre-arrangement counselor, including your family, if you desire. This can be held in the privacy of your home or here at the funeral home. During the meeting you can discuss your ideas regarding a meaningful funeral service. Our counselor will share with you and your family all of your options. It may be comforting for you to know that you are under no obligation and are completely in charge of your pre-arrangement plans. 



Pre-Funding

More and more families are electing to pre-fund their pre-arranged funerals. Although this is not mandatory, it can offer many advantages. One can arrange the specific kind of service, merchandise and cemetery location one desires at today's prices, and be assured of adequate funds for the future payment of these services, merchandise and cemetery fees. This can reduce almost all future financial requirements for family members.It also serves as a source for peace of mind as well as a thoughtful act of consideration. Our pre-arrangement counselor can assist you with pre-funding choices for your pre-arranged funeral. Please feel free to inquire.
