Planning ahead gives us the opportunity to prepare for future events of importance to us and those we love. It also makes sense to plan for that which is inevitable.
Preplanning is the process of making plans for your own funeral , or that of a loved one , well in advance of need. It includes writing out and setting up a permanent record of your wishes. The written expression of your thinking as to the type of service, burial location and other details are very important, along with your written record of vital statistics. Many people also choose to pay for their funeral in advance. To pre-fund is an option that more people are choosing because it allows you to consider cost-effective options at a time when you are better prepared to make sound, fiscally responsible decisions.
Prearrangement means that you have taken the opportunity to both preplan and pre-fund. This process specifically include meeting with individuals or families in advance of need to explain, educate and provide information for prearrangement. This service is provided free of charge in hopes that it will bring peace of mind to the people we serve. There is a comfort that comes in knowing that your wishes will be respected and that your family will have fewer burdens in making decisions about funeral arrangements during a time of grief.
We encourage people at any age to become acquainted with the costs and all the decisions that need to be made when a loved one encounters the inevitable. Having to discuss arrangements at the time of need is probably one of the hardest financial decisions that we will face in our lifetime.
