Why Plan Ahead

Why Plan Ahead

There’s a lot that goes into planning a funeral, and making arrangements beforehand gives you time to consider all of your options and make sure that you’re covering all of the necessary details. Here are some reasons for planning ahead.

It's Easy

Fill out a form or meet with one of our Funeral Directors to put your plan in place. Anyone can create a plan, at any stage in their life, and you always can make changes if you wish.



You Decide

Preplanning lets you create your own unique life celebration. 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.



Relieve Your Family’s Burden

Preplanning relieves your family of making difficult decisions and gives them more time and energy to focus on healing and remembrance.



You Can Prepay

Prepayment generally means that you save money by being protected from inflation and price changes. We will either purchase an interest-bearing CD or insurance policy in your name where it remains until needed. Prepaying also provides peace of mind for your family, who won’t have to figure out your funeral expenses when the time comes.



What If I Move?

We keep a record of your preplanned arrangements and any prepayments, and they’re easily transferable to any funeral home in the United States.



Where Do I Start?

First, check out our preplanning checklist to help you consider all of your possibilities. Then you can preplan online using our form to create your personalized arrangements or you can schedule a time to meet with our staff to discuss your options and make a plan.
