Making funeral arrangements beforehand gives you time to consider all your options and truly plan a service that’s unique to you. If you’re still on the fence, below are a few more reasons why preplanning is a good option.
It’s as simple as completing a form or meeting with one of our staff members to put your plan in place. No matter your age, anyone can preplan, and you can make changes whenever you wish.
Preplanning relieves your family of that burden, so they can focus on grief and remembrance.
When you preplan, you’re in control of creating a unique celebration of life. You also can include your family members in the planning, so the service reflects their wishes and needs as well.
We deposit your prepayments into a trust fund where it stays until it’s needed. Prepaying generally means you save money since you’re protected from inflation and price changes, and it also gives your family members peace of mind knowing that the funeral expenses are taken care of.
Check out our planning checklist to see all your options. Then, you can plan online using our form or you can schedule a meeting with our staff to plan your personalized service details.
Additionally, we keep a record of your preplanned arrangements and prepayments, and they’re easily transferable to any funeral home in the United States if you were to move.
