Pre-Planning Funeral– A Gift to Your Family
The death of a loved one is a tragedy every family experiences. Traditionally, when a death occurs, the family is not only dealing with the grief of their loved one passing, but also the stress of planning the funeral. Most families find themselves unprepared to deal with the decisions and financial burden a death forces upon them.
While our family is ready to help guide you through the process at your time of need, we encourage families to discuss funeral arrangements in ADVANCE. There are many decisions and details that need to be made at the time of a death in regard to a funeral or memorial. It is a difficult time to fulfill someone’s wishes with so many emotions involved.
Pre-arrangements can be as simple as writing down some ideas or can be very specific about every detail you desire. You may ask us to simply keep your wishes on file, or you may decide to prepay your arrangements. Whichever you chose, we would be honored to meet with you to discuss your ideas and answer any questions.
Benefits of Making Pre-Arrangements
Peace of Mind
By pre-planning your final arrangements, you are giving your family a most important gift, PEACE OF MIND. When a death occurs, the grief is immeasurable. Taking the time to plan ahead will give your family the confidence of knowing that all the details have been sorted out in advance according to your wishes. Therefore, your loved ones will not have the stress of making decisions at such a difficult time.
Freeze the Cost
As with everything, funeral costs continue to rise. Prepaying your funeral expenses at today’s price is the best way to protect your family from rising costs in the future. You may choose to pay all at once or take advantage of our many affordable payment plans. If you choose to prepay, you alleviate a financial burden, allowing your loved ones to focus on honoring your life.
Most life insurance is purchased to allow a family time to adjust to the loss of income a death causes. If arrangements are not prepaid, a large amount of insurance proceeds can be spent on cemetery and funeral items, adding financial burdens to your loved ones left behind.
It’s Your Decision
Pre-planning funeral gives you time to make decisions in a calm frame of mind. Your decisions can be as simple or as elaborate as you choose. Your arrangements will reflect your personal choices and prevent your family from having to guess what you would have wanted. You eliminate the stress they may have to make important decisions under time constraints.

Most families choose to prepay their loved one’s final expenses when spending down for Medicaid. Our Directors can assist you with this process.
