Why Plan Ahead?

Planning is a daily activity for all of us. We plan so that our days may run smoother and we won't be caught unprepared or off guard. Planning gives us a level of comfort and security. One of the things in life that often catches us off guard is the death of a loved one. In the midst of the emotional turmoil that we feel, it is difficult to plan for what would be fitting and helpful for us at this time.


Planning ahead makes sense.
Planning allows the opportunity for families to talk together about what is important to them, what will be meaningful in the event of the death, who would participate and help, and what practical decisions should be made. This also allows for a discussion regarding funeral costs and how they could be paid for.

Many families have told us, at the time of funeral arranging, that one of the best gifts their loved one had given was the consideration of planning ahead, giving their survivors the sense of wellness and security that well thought out planning brings.

Pre-planning is a complimentary service as part of our Family Care. Take advantage of finding out this valuable information that will afford peace of mind now.



What if I Move?
Once you create your pre-plan with us, we store it in our files as a record of your final wishes and decisions. Your plan is easily transferable to any other funeral home, so it can be used wherever you might choose to relocate. No matter where you live at the time of your passing, or which funeral home’s services you decide to use, we’ll make sure that your plan follows you there.


Where Do I Start?
The first step is to review our Pre-Planning Checklist to help you consider all of your possibilities and gather all of the information you’ll need. Then, you can use our Pre-Planning Form to begin creating your personalized arrangements. You can also contact us to schedule a time to meet with a member of our staff to discuss your options and design your plan in person.
