Why Plan Ahead

Plan now for peace of mind.

Planning ahead lets your loved ones focus on honoring life instead of being consumed with the details that come with losing someone.  Make important choices now, so that a future funeral becomes more of time of gathering together than a shared burden.

Make important choices now, so your family won't have to later.

The benefits to your family will be real and valued, including your service, spiritual and financial choices. From designing the service, to paying in advance, you can make the time exactly as you think it should be. And your loved ones will know they’re fulfilling your wishes. 

 

Plan for personal services.

Preplanning lets you create your own unique and personal service. Including your family in the planning process can help them feel connected to you both in life and in death, knowing that your arrangements reflect your desires.

 

Plan because family matters.

Losing a loved one can be disorienting and can create confusion, but your final arrangements don’t have to add to the uncertainty. Pre-planning your funeral services can save your loved ones from having to make decisions while they’re grieving. And they won’t have to guess what you’d want.  Instead of getting lost in details, your family will be able to focus on honoring your life and healing theirs.

 

Plan for financial relief

Funeral services are often an unexpected expense. But they don’t have to be. You can choose to fund your pre-arranged plans now, and the costs will be locked in for the future, even if prices for various services and products increase. You don’t have to pre-pay if you pre-plan, but it is the best way to take the financial burden off your family. So it’s definitely a smart option to consider. Also, please know that your payments and plans can be adjusted later, should your wishes change over time. So there’s nothing to regret by going through the process now. Your decisions don’t have to be final.  We keep a record of your preplanned arrangements and any prepayments.   Your prearrangement can be easily transferable to any funeral home in the United States if you decide to relocate.
