Most people see great value in wise estate planning to secure a
comfortable future. Great thought is put forth coordinating with
lawyers, life insurance brokers and estate planners to establish
wills, life insurance policies and pensions. This planning is not
complete without meeting with a funeral director to discuss options
and financial decisions about funeral arrangements.
3 Important Reasons to Pre-Plan a Funeral
Preplanning Funeral Director
• Your specific wishes are recorded and fulfilled
• Your family is not left to make difficult decisions at the
time of your death and try to guess what you would have wanted for
• You are able to include others and make the final decisions
unclouded by emotion
The pre-arranged funeral is an opportunity to carefully plan for an orderly and inevitable
conclusion to life. By doing so, peace of mind is just one of the
benefits, not only for the individual for whom the arrangements
are being made but more importantly for the survivors.
There are pamphlets and brochures that will tell you there are
over 80 difficult decisions to be made at the time of death.
Ask anyone who has experienced the benefit of a pre-planned funeral
and they will tell you how glad they were “that Mom made these
arrangements,” “that everything was paid for in advance.”
New funding and investing options are allowing people to make decisions
and pre-payments that before were not previously available to them.
As always the entire funeral can be pre-paid in advance, but now
there are also time payment plans that allow you to include these
payments in your overall estate planning picture. The reality is
funeral costs will continue to increase in the future. You can eliminate
the concern of affordability by pre-paying the funeral in advance.
You can benefit from today’s lower prices, as your investment
will protect you from future inflation.
Our licensed Pre-planning Funeral Director can meet with you in
the comfort of your home or here at the funeral home to discuss
your options. This is done without obligation. Please see our pre-arrangement
information page to provide the basic information we would require
to begin a pre-arrangement file and record your wishes.
