Why Plan Ahead

Why Plan Ahead

There’s a lot that goes into planning a memorial service and cremation, but making those arrangements beforehand gives you time to consider all of your options and make sure that you’re covering all of the necessary details. Still feeling unsure? Here are some of the most important reasons why planning ahead may be the best option.

It's Easy

Fill out a form or meet with a member of our staff to put your plan in place. Anyone can create a plan, at any stage in their life, and you always can make changes if you wish.



You Decide

Preplanning lets you create your own unique life celebration. Including your family in the planning process can help them feel connected to you both in life and in death, knowing that your arrangements reflect your desires. It is also important for them to be comfortable with the arrangements you are asking them to carry out for you. An open dialog will make the process before and after a much more peaceful one.



Relieve Your Family’s Burden

Preplanning relieves your family of that burden and gives them more time and energy to focus on healing and remembrance.



You Can Prepay

Prepayment generally means that you save money by being protected from inflation and price changes. We deposit all prepayments into a trust fund where it remains until needed. Prepaying also provides peace of mind for your family, who won’t have to figure out your funeral expenses when the time comes.

By putting the money into a trust, it also protects the consumer, should you change your mind or if something happens to the company whom set up the trust. The funds are transferable to the funeral home or service that actually performed the services.



What If I Move?

We keep a record of your preplanned arrangements and any prepayments, and they’re easily transferable to any funeral home in the United States.



Where Do I Start?

First, check out our preplanning checklist to help you consider all your possibilities. Then you can preplan online using our form to create your personalized arrangements or you can schedule a time to speak with our staff to discuss your options and create a plan.
