Families plan ahead for
many major events in life such as weddings, birthdays,
vacations, careers and retirement. Today, for
a variety of reasons, more families are giving
consideration to advanced funeral planning. We
have outlined for your reference, some of the
major reasons and benefits of funeral pre-planning
and the steps necessary to complete the process.
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.
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 a
funeral director and your family. 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 funeral directors will share with you and
your family all of the funeral and cemetery 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.
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 a 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 the service, merchandise
and cemetery. 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
