Pre-planning Honors Your Wishes & Protects Your Family

preplanning

Assisting in the arrangements that accompany events, cremation, and burial services are tasks we encounter every day. By pre-planning a funeral, you protect yourself against unforeseen costs, as well as protect your family against making difficult arrangement and financial decisions during an emotionally stressful time.

By selecting a comprehensive pre-planning package, your specific arrangements are documented in detail and kept on file, available for activation at the time of need. Once you’ve made your arrangement decisions, a payment schedule is established that comfortably fits your current income and budget. Most important, when our services are required, your final wishes will be carried out.

Because there are more than 50 decisions that accompany funeral arrangements, the confusion experienced by grieving families is understandable. Choosing to make the arrangements yourself not only allows you to exercise your best judgment and consider the advice of family members, it also allows you to properly manage the situation financially and emotionally.

Things to Consider: How to Plan a Funeral, Cremation, or Burial Service for Yourself

These are just a few of the considerations that need to be made when making final arrangements:

  • Who will carry out the details of your service?
  • Will you have a traditional burial or choose cremation?
  • Do you need to secure a cemetery plot or entombment space?
  • Will you require a site marker, plaque, or monument?
  • Will yours be a fraternal, religious, or military event?
  • Will there be specific customs, readings, or music performed for your gathering?
  • Do you wish to be buried or cremated in particular clothing or jewelry?
