Why Plan Ahead

There’s a lot that goes into planning a funeral, but making those arrangements beforehand gives you time to consider all of your options and make sure that you’re covering all of the necessary details. Still feeling unsure? Here are some of the most important reasons why planning ahead may be the best option.

 

It's Easy

Fill out a form and meet with a member of our staff to put your plan in place. Anyone can create a plan, at any stage in their life, and you always can make changes if you wish.


You Decide

Preplanning lets you create your own unique life celebration. Including your family in the planning process can help them feel connected to you both in life and in death, knowing that your arrangements reflect your desires, and will meet the needs of those you leave behind.


Relieve Your Family’s Burden

Preplanning relieves your family of that burden and gives them more time and energy to focus on healing and remembrance.


You Can Prepay

Prepayment means that you save money by being protected from inflation and price changes. We deposit all prepayments into a trust fund or insurance product, where it remains until needed. A prepaid contract is guaranteed, which means you will not have to pay more in the future for the services and products you have paid for. Prepaying also provides peace of mind for your family, who won’t have to figure out your funeral expenses when the time comes.


What If I Move?

We keep a record of your preplanned arrangements and any prepayments, and they’re easily transferable to any funeral home.


Where Do I Start?

First, check out our preplanning checklist to help you consider all your possibilities. Give us a call to schedule a time to meet with our staff to discuss your options and make a plan, or you can even start the process by preplan online using our form to create your personalized arrangements.
