Planning Ahead

Getting Started is Easy

Taking the time to make arrangements in advance is important for you and your loved ones. Doing so allows you to make logical, thoughtful arrangements your family will appreciate, as well as allowing you time to tend to every detail.

We’ve created this easy to use form that lets you start the process by gathering basic information. Once we receive this information, our funeral home will contact you (if desired) to finalize your arrangements, or you can just ask us to keep this information on file.

Benefits of Preplanning

Peace of Mind

All of your arrangements are guaranteed and will be carried out just as you have directed. You and your family can feel comfortable that although you won’t need the plans for years to come, when they are needed, they will be available and take care of. There is an immense peace knowing your wishes will be executed as you designed them, meaning those you care about will be able to remember you as you want them to.

Make your Wishes Known

Sadly, many families experience disputes and hard feelings when arranging for a loved one’s unexpected death. Because memories of the loved one’s wishes sometimes contradict each other, disagreements can easily arise. Such infighting and disunity can drive bitter emotions and damage the healing process. By making your plans now, your loved ones don’t have to guess at what you may have wanted; they will know you were remembered as you wanted to be.

Flexible Funding Options

When you plan a funeral in advance there are more options when it comes to funding a funeral. Prearrangements can be paid for with a preneed insurance policy, life insurance, or other payment options. At the time of death, services must be paid in full, so it's important to understand your options ahead of time.

Relieve the burden from loved ones

Did you know that often more than 150 decisions and tasks must be completed within the first 24 to 48 hours after an individual’s passing? By arranging your final wishes ahead of time, you can ensure that your loved ones don’t have to wrestle over those details and decisions during their time of emotional upheaval. The ability to know everything is taken care of will allow proper remembrance and the first steps of healing.
