Why Plan Ahead

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 Simple To Start

We understand that finding the courage to preplan may be difficult. Therefore, we offer many different options for you to preplan. We are happy to meet you at our office or at your home. You can even preplan from the comfort of your own home, by filling out the online preplanning form or by requesting a preplanning guide be sent to you in the mail, at no cost.

You Decide

Preplanning lets you create your own unique life celebration. It gives you the freedom to make choices regarding your final wishes and lets your loved one's know what is truly important to you. By writing everything down, it ensures all your wishes will be followed and will not go unknown.  Including your family in the planning process, can help them feel connected to you both in life and in death.

Relieve Your Family’s Burden

Loosing a loved one is one of the most difficult moments we face in life. Many people don't realize the amount of decisions that need to be made in such a short period of time after loosing someone. From choosing burial or cremation, what type of service, who should speak, what cemetery, if and where a reception should be held, it can be very overwhelming. By preplanning your funeral, you are relieving your loved ones of the stress of uncertainty, and reassuring them that they are carrying out your final wishes as you would have wanted. Preplanning can be one of the kindest gestures you give to your family, allowing them instead to  focus on what truly matters, gathering together, reliving memories and honoring your legacy.

You Can Prepay

Prepaying is not a requirement, though many people choose to. We deposit all prepayments into a trust fund where it remains until needed. Prepaying provides peace of mind for your family, allowing them again, to focus on the important task of healing instead of how the funeral expenses are to be paid.

What If I Move?

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

Where Do I Start?

First, check out our preplanning checklist to help you consider all your possibilities. Then you can preplan online using our form to create your personalized arrangements or you can schedule a time to meet with our staff to discuss your options and make a plan.
