Advance Funeral Planning: Why Plan Ahead?


Peace of Mind

Many who have undergone the emotional strain of arranging a funeral within hours of losing a loved one have made the choice to pre-plan their own funeral. Doing so lifts the burden from their loved ones by relieving decision-making pressure at a time of grief and emotional stress.

Personal Choice

Funeral arrangements are a deeply personal choice. Pre-planning provides you with the time needed to make practical, detailed decisions that reflect your standards, lifestyle, taste, and budget. We assure you and your loved ones that the specific choices you make will be carried out as planned.

Lower Costs

When you finalize your funeral plan, we can advise you of the total cost associated with your unique request. While you do not have to set aside funds for your plan, doing so protects you against escalating funeral costs while safeguarding your assets from long-term care and illness expenses. Locking in today's funeral costs ensures that the necessary funds for your funeral are set aside; and it helps relieve unnecessary worry of future financial hardship and unexpected expense.
