Planning Guide

When a loved one dies, family members are left with the weighty responsibility of arranging the funeral, and ensuring that the final wishes of their loved one are honored. This can be overwhelming, especially when the deceased leaves behind no clear wishes or requests.

One thing you can do to remove this emotional burden from your family members is to pre-arrange your funeral. Not only will this help your family members during their time of grief, but it will ensure that your wishes are met. Pre-arranging your funeral is also an empowering experience as it allows you to have control in your final celebration of the life you lived.

What will I experience in pre-arranging?

The pre-arrangement experience is what we refer to as "death positive" as it provides you peace of mind and empowerment when facing the unknown.

Bringing you comfort in knowing the exact arrangements for your service for those who will celebrate your life knowing full well that the service is exactly as you wished it would be.

Planning ahead minimizes the risk of any difficulties, obstacles, or uncertainties will arrive to distract your family members during their season of bereavement and reflection.

Our compassionate and experienced staff members are here to offer helpful, empathetic assistance as you seek to plan your service.

Benefits of Pre-Planning

Consult these guidelines on the most important elements of funeral planning that you and your loved ones should know.
  • Provides the opportunity to become informed about the plethora of options regarding funeral and cremation services. No two services are alike! Individuals can choose to showcase videos, photographs, music, special readings or any other involved elements with family and friends.
  • All wishes are documented through choosing to pre-arrange. A legal will may cover medical treatment, but not any funeral costs. You can remove this burden for someone making decisions who may not be aware of your wishes.
  • Paying ahead of time eases future financial burden. This eases the stress of surviving loved ones, as the costs of services and merchandise will be locked into today's current rates. Prearranging makes financial sense. We offer many choices for payment plans
  • All important information that is needed at the time of death is already together. Information such as: social security number, ethnicity, religion, residence, birth information, life insurance and so on.
  • Selecting individuals to be a part of the funeral service in advance takes away some of the emotional burden. You are able to select readers, performers and other individuals to be a part of the service in advance.
