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 final services
• 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.
