No one likes to think about death, let alone plan for it. By pre-planning your funeral, you relieve your family of having to make important final decisions during a period of great loss and confusion – a time when people aren’t thinking very clearly and may not know what you wanted because you never made your wishes known.

Pre-planning your funeral can be very informal, and as simple as jotting down your preferences and sharing your wishes with a family member. More formal arrangements in the form of a pre-need contract can be set up with us and can be pre-funded through life insurance, bank trust agreement, or other methods. The expense of a funeral can be either guaranteed or non-guaranteed.

If you would like to begin documenting your funeral wishes, click here and you can download and complete the forms to give to your family, this is an easy resource to use as a funeral planning guide. Make sure your family receives a copy of your plans and if you wish, send them back to us and we’ll keep them on file for you so when the time comes, all the arrangements are a mere phone call away and we’ll take care of everything for you. If you feel you’d like help, feel free to call or come in and we’ll guide you through your planning process.

When it comes to your final arrangements, shouldn't you make the decisions? The arrangements you make will reflect your exact wishes and desires. Pre-arranging your own service will help to ease the burden of your loved ones. It will also alleviate any questions, problems or differences, which can occur among family members.

Pre-payment will protect you from the rising cost of prices, and it will not be a financial burden on your loved ones. When you plan ahead you know that your wishes will be fulfilled.

Arrangements can be made in the comfort of your own home by clicking the button below. Fill in as much as you are comfortable with and we'd be pleased to meet with you to discuss further. See the form below for details.
