Pre-Planning

Peace of Mind:  Many who have gone through the process of arranging a funeral have considered the benefits of pre-planning their own funeral. Doing so helps to lighten the burden from their loved ones by eliminating many difficult and important decisions that must otherwise be made at a time of grief and emotional stress.

Personal Choices: Funeral arrangements are a very personal choice. Pre-planning provides you with the time you need to make thoughtful, practical, detailed decisions that reflects your standards of life, and spiritual and financial concerns.  You can be assured your personal choices will be carried out as you planned.

Financial concerns: You do not have to set aside funds to pre-plan for your final arrangements, but doing so will keep your family from ever having to pay more for the guaranteed goods and services you have selected.
