Why Pre-Plan?

Peace of Mind

M any who have undergone the emotional strain of arranging a funeral within hours of losing a loved one have made the choice to pre-plan their own funeral. Doing so lifts the burden from their loved ones by relieving decision-making pressure at a time of grief and emotional stress.

Personal Choice

F uneral arrangements are a deeply personal choice. Pre-planning provides you with the time needed to make practical, detailed decisions that reflect your standards, lifestyle, taste and budget. And we assure you and your family that the choices you make will be carried out as planned.

Lower Costs

When you finalize your plan, we can advise you of the total cost. You do not have to set aside funds for your plan, but doing so protects your family from escalating funeral costs, ensuring that the necessary funds are set aside. This will relieve yourself of unnecessary future worry and your survivors of an unexpected expense.

Please feel free to download and print our complimentary Pre-Planning Forms and complete your wishes in the convenience of your own home. After recording your wishes, please provide our office with a copy for our records. Your Pre-Arrangement will be kept in a confidential file within our office.
