What are pre-arrangements really
We plan for many of the special events in our lives, such as birthdays,
anniversaries and weddings just to mention a
few. Planning one's own funeral is something that many people are
becoming more and more interested in.
Why? Quite simply, by planning ahead
you remove the burden from surviving family members. And, at the
same time, are assured that what you want for your funeral your
family will know, because you have arranged for it. Your family
members wont have to ask: Did we do the right thing? Is it what
he or she wanted?
Once you have decided whether you want a burial or cremation, we
will help you put into writing exactly what type of funeral you
want. You can choose a traditional service, a memorial service or
no service. The choice is up to you. You can even pick out the casket
or urn you want.
Along with preplanning, most people choose to prepay
for their service. By prepaying you are assured that there will
be no financial burden on your family. You are also guaranteed that
the goods and services you select will not cost you anymore when
it comes time for us to perform the funeral. You can even choose
the prepayment plan that best suits your budget.
What are the benefits of planning ahead for
Economy- Money is set aside through the funeral home in the
form of a trust or insurance policy, so it will be there when you
need it. The funeral home locks in the cost of their service and
merchandise, so the cost does not continue to rise.
Personal Choice- You choose the extent, the kind and cost
of the service you want, right down to the smallest detail. You
are assured that your funeral and disposition will be consistent
with your individual standards and lifestyles. You and your family
can share in the planning together.
Peace of Mind- By making these decisions in advance, you
can bring peace of mind to yourself and your loved ones. You will
know that the arrangements you want are complete and the cost won't
burden your family.
