Preplanning a Funeral

The thoughtful gift of comfort you give to others.

Preplanning allows you to take your time with important choices. Choosing to make these decisions in advance gives you and your family peace of mind in knowing your final wishes have been recorded and will be followed through. We make it easy to take advantage of preplanning, and there is no fee for our consultation. 

Getting started on preplanning:

Set up a conference with one of our funeral directors.

  • This one-on-one meeting helps you think through how you want your legacy to be remembered.

Record your wishes.

  • We will thoroughly explain any decisions that need to be made in advance.
  • Our Planning Ahead Form makes the process simple.

Fund the funeral services.

  • Set up a Trust Account to fund the funeral.
  • Interest accrued on your Trust Account can offset future inflation. By funding in advance, your family can save a large sum in the long run.

Share with your family.

  • Let your family know you have made these important decisions. It gives them peace of mind knowing they will not have to go through the stress of choosing or trying to think what you would have wanted.
