Pre-Planned Funeral Services

Funeral pre-planning is the advance planning of funeral or memorial service details in anticipation of need and is an essential component of comprehensive estate planning. A funeral director will guide you through the pre-planning process, allowing you to make unhurried decisions regarding your funeral and memorial arrangements from among the vast array of options available to you.

Why Plan Ahead?

Pre-planning not only ensures that your wishes are fulfilled, but it also serves as a thoughtful gesture to your loved ones who will be spared the financial and emotional burden of making funeral arrangements during a time of deep personal loss.

Can I Pre-Plan without Pre-Funding?

Pre-funding is a choice most people make to spare their family any financial pressures. Pre-funding can be accomplished through a variety of options which will be presented to you by our caring staff during your pre-planning meeting.

If pre-funding is not chosen, a record of your vital information and the itemization of your personal instructions and preferences will remain on file at the funeral home to act as a helpful guideline for your family while allowing the cost to be paid at the time of need.
