The thought of making funeral arrangements is often uncomfortable. However, funeral planning before the need arises is an important topic to think about. Planning ahead is not a new concept. People have always prepared wills, purchased life insurance, and even selected their own cemetery lot. Funeral planning simply takes the next step by meeting with our funeral director to discuss arrangements in advance. We can provide guidance and expertise to help you make informed decisions.
The benefits of pre-planning are numerous; you are able to express your own wishes, thereby relieving family members of the burden of making countless decisions at an emotional time; your funeral plan is completely transferrable in case you move away; and it relieves your family of a future financial burden.
Many families choose to pre-pay their funeral expenses, thereby guaranteeing the cost of our services and merchandise and protecting against inflation. (Cash advance items will be charged at current day costs at the time of death.) However, when you pre-plan with us, it is not necessary to pre-pay. Often, just having your wishes specified and knowing they will be carried out exactly brings peace of mind. You may choose to do as much or as little as you see appropriate for your individual circumstances.
Our Advance Planning Program is a simple, safe, and secure means of funding your arrangements. Plans can be tailored to suit individual needs. Payment plans are available as well. Your existing insurance plans can be used to fund your funeral, however, your family will pay prices that are in effect at the time of your funeral.
