Pre-Planned Funeral Services

Funeral pre-planning is the advance planning of funeral or memorial service details in anticipation of need and is an essential component of comprehensive estate planning. One of our knowledgeable funeral directors will guide you through the pre-planning process, allowing you to make unhurried decisions regarding your funeral and memorial arrangements, fully explaining the vast array of options available to you.

Why Plan Ahead?

Pre-planning and pre-funding not only ensures that your wishes are fulfilled, but it also serves as a thoughtful gesture to your loved ones who will be spared the financial and emotional burden of making funeral arrangements during a time of deep personal loss. When you pre-fund, you have the option to pay for your final expenses at today's cost to avoid future price increases. You also have the option of paying over time or making a single payment.

Can I Pre-Plan without Pre-Funding?

Pre-funding is a choice most people make to spare their family any financial pressures. Pre-funding can be accomplished through a variety of options which will be presented to you by our caring staff during your pre-planning meeting.

If pre-funding is not chosen, a record of your vital information and the itemization of your personal instructions and preferences will remain on file at the funeral home to act as a helpful guideline for your family while allowing the cost to be paid at the time of need.
