A Preplanned Funeral Answers These Two Questions:

  1. "What effect would an unexpected death in addition to an unplanned funeral have on my immediate family?"
  2. "What would be the consequences of continuing to put this off and then running out of time?"

What Is Preplanning?

Preplanning is the recording of your preferences regarding funeral arrangements, securing necessary biographical information, and the selection of appropriate merchandise before death occurs.

Paying for funeral arrangements in advance is optional. You Do Not Have To Prepay To Preplan. If you choose to prepay using one of our affordable payment options, you can help alleviate some of the financial responsibility placed on your immediate family.

Preplanning A Funeral Service

People who preplan their funeral arrangements give their families the greatest gift of all - Peace Of Mind. We strongly encourage you to take the time to plan the funeral service in advance, so that when the time comes your family can focus on supporting one another, knowing you have already taken care of the details of the funeral.


Preplanning Your Final Arrangements:

  • Assures that your personal preferences will be carried out as you have planned.
  • Eliminates second guessing about the type of service you want.
  • Reduces stress at an already emotional time.
