We all like to hope that death will make an exception in our case. But we know it won’t be so. Sooner or later, we each will leave this life, whether we are ready or not.
This is why many people take the time to prepare a will, giving great consideration to what they’ll pass on to their loved ones. Unfortunately, they often give little thought to how they’ll pass on. Or, they forget that wills are typically opened after the funeral, much too late for final preferences and instructions. So, without a pre-planned arrangement, their final wishes often are not carried out.
Pre-planning is simply one of the most thoughtful gifts you can leave your family to help them cope with their loss. In addition to assuring that your final wishes are known and respected, it also:
- Relieves the burden of making painful decisions during a time of great stress and sorrow.
- Eliminates emotional overspending from grief or guilt.
- Protects your family financially by providing funds to meet funeral expenses.
With a little help from our caring staff, putting together a prearranged plan is simple. From choosing a casket, vault and headstone to planning the service, we can help you make careful, appropriate selections. We can also help you cover all the small details, like wording the epitaph, choosing service music or favorite scriptures and selecting pallbearers.
Most importantly, we can help you plan for covering the expenses at today’s prices, regardless of inflation. Several affordable, flexible options are available to fit any budget. And, if your plans change or if you relocate, your pre-funded policy will be accepted at funeral homes nationwide.
