Pre-Planning your funeral is an essential part of a well-tended life, as it provides you with time to plan ahead and make end of life decisions in a calm and rational atmosphere. Start the online planning process now, or meet with one of our pre-planning advisors. It just makes sense to plan ahead.

Absolutely no one should have to make these decisions for you. Pre-planning gives you and your loved ones greater peace-of-mind. You can live your life to the fullest, knowing you have done the right thing – for everyone.

Why should I plan ahead?

When you plan ahead, you will be able to compare the many options available. You will be able to compare the services, the products and the prices among different companies. You will have the opportunity to make an informed decision about your funeral and cemetery arrangements, and the form of memorial you prefer. You will be able to make choices that are meaningful to both you and your family, and you will gain peace of mind knowing your family and friends will be relieved of the emotional and financial burden often associated with making arrangements when a death occurs. In addition, by prefunding your funeral and cemetery services, a guaranteed price contract will allow you to purchase at today’s prices, free from inflationary pressures in the future.

What would your family do if you died today?

It’s a fair statement to say that most people don’t want to think about what will need to be done when they pass away. However, more and more of us are beginning to see the wisdom of preparing ahead of time for that eventually. In recent years, National Funeral Marketing Studies of Americans over the age of 40 have indicated that over 85% of us think planning ahead for funeral arrangements is a good idea.

Many people who adhere to this belief have become convinced through personal experience. Most of us become wiser people after we suffer from the “hard knocks” of life that catch us by surprise. Death in a family can be devastating for obvious emotional reasons, but also for financial reasons. Grief may be compounded when a family finds that they are completely unprepared for the expense.
