It is not always possible to pay respects in person, so we hope that this small token will help.
A gift to your family, sparing them hard decisions at an emotional time.
Pre-planning funeral arrangements has become an important part of modern estate planning. Making prearrangements with your funeral home not only ensures that there will be assets available at the time of need; it also provides peace of mind that your final requests will be carried out. There are numerous decisions to be made in planning a funeral, from the type of service and casket, to music and flower selections. Prearranging a funeral gives you the opportunity to make your wishes known, removing the burden of making such difficult decisions from your family in an already stressful time. Setting money aside in a designated funeral fund is a sound financial decision, eliminating, or at the very least reducing the cost of a funeral to your loved ones, while reducing current assets for Medicaid eligibility. The purchase of a cemetery plot may also be done well in advance while space is available and the cost is still reasonable.
The process of pre-planning is fairly simple. It involves gathering biographical information in order to complete the necessary state forms, and discussing your wishes and concerns with a licensed funeral director. Any type of funeral may be pre-planned, from the traditional funeral with a church service to a basic cremation. Please contact our office with any questions about pre-planning, or to make an appointment to speak with a funeral director.
Our funeral home is pleased to honor pre-arrangement contracts filed with other funeral homes. If you'd like to transfer your pre-arranged services to our funeral home, simply contact us to set an appointment.
