Pre-Plan Funeral

Our daily lives are filled with plans of all sorts - we plan for our careers, our children's education, and even for retirement. We spend time planning for parties, weddings, and vacations. Through automobile and homeowner's insurance, we even plan for events that may never even occur. We invest considerable resources into life insurance to address the needs of our loved ones after we are gone. Through all of these plans, how often do we spend time to think about - much less plan - for that day?

We understand the hesitation when talking about planning funeral services in advance, but it does not have to be an uncomfortable event. In fact, it can be a responsible and important step that can save both emotional and financial distress. It is a certain part of our future; knowing that - and being prepared - can give us great comfort.

Why We Plan

Because there are so many details and decisions associated with arranging a funeral, planning a funeral before the need arises can relieve loved ones of the responsibility of making arrangements at a time that can be difficult. Planning in advance can demonstrate love and consideration; most importantly, it provides peace of mind in knowing that all of the financial considerations have been addressed and that all of the decisions meet your wishes and needs. Pre-planning eliminates doubt.


Pre-planning services for yourself or for a loved one affords you the opportunity to select exactly the type of services you prefer. Because all services and merchandise may be selected and paid for in advance, pre-planning can guarantee all selections at today’s prices - potentially saving you and your family a substantial amount of money.

And addressing so many decisions in advance when you are emotionally and financially prepared to handle them just makes sense. It is a fiscally responsible approach for something so important; it is planning for you and your family’s future.

Next Steps

We offer an extensive pre-planning service to our families. When someone chooses to entrust us with their needs and desires for their own funeral, or that of a loved one, we provide them with the complete trust that their wishes will be honored and that their family will have the peace of mind knowing that everything has been addressed.

Our families may start a trust fund that we will maintain for you, entrust us with a life insurance policy, or just make your wishes known. From traditional funeral services, to a simple burial or cremation, we will explain all options that our families have to allow them to choose the arrangements that best suits their individual and unique needs at this special time.
