Why Plan Ahead?

Peace of Mind
Many who have undergone the emotional strain of arranging a funeral within hours of losing a loved one have made the choice to pre-plan their own funeral. Doing so lifts the burden from their loved ones by relieving decision-making pressure at a time of grief and emotional stress.

Personal Choice
Funeral arrangements are a deeply personal choice. By planning ahead, a tribute ceremony will be provided in accordance with your wishes. You can determine the type of service, decide what merchandise is appropriate, select the clergy or celebrant, music, scripture, readings, flowers and pallbearers right down to the smallest detail. Pre-planning provides you with the time needed to make practical, detailed decisions that reflect your standards, lifestyle, taste and budget. And we assure you and your family that the choices you make will be carried out as planned.

Good Planning
When you finalize your plan, we can advise you of the total cost. Many people are putting the cost of a funeral away in a funeral trust so that will ease the burden of family members at a later date. A funeral trust will gather interest at today's interest rate and will help guard against inflation.

Life Choices

Most of us plan ahead in life. We plan for our wedding, our children's education, family vacations, and other significant expected life events. We also plan for the unexpected events of life by purchasing home, auto and medical insurance.

Understanding the benefits of planning ahead has prompted many to take the step to pre-plan their own funeral.
