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.
