Why Plan Ahead

Preplan your funeral and lift the burden from your loved ones.

Planning a funeral requires a lot from the deceased’s family. It involves making many important decisions and time spent away from loved ones to discuss and implement their choices. When a person is experiencing the loss of someone they love, making final arrangements can be an overwhelming task.

By planning your own end-of-life arrangements in advance, you take the responsibility off your loved ones and give yourself the opportunity to create the goodbye you really want.

There are many benefits to funeral preplanning, including:

  • Giving your family more time and energy to focus on healing and remembrance
  • Relieving your loved ones of financial stress
  • Ensuring your personal wishes are carried out
  • Prepaying protects you and your loved ones from inflation and price changes
  • Prepayment is protected by a trust fund
  • Plans can be easily changed or transferred across states if you move

Making a funeral preplan is very simple. You can plan online, or meet with an experienced funeral director who will guide you through your options and help you plan services that meet your needs and your personality. We’ve even provided a funeral preplanning checklist to help you get started.
