Our Preplanning Services

We plan for every aspect of life. Having a family, vacations, weddings, retirement-all are planned. We prepare for what might happen such as fires, accidents and floods. But, because most of us do not like to think about death - we avoid making important funeral decisions in advance.

All of the ceremony, burial, or cremation arrangements can be made at one time in one of our locations or in the comfort of your own home.

Why should you preplan?

Life is more complicated now than ever! Family members live in different parts of the country, dealing with government agencies can be frustrating, and inflation is felt by every household. Planning ahead prevents emotional overspending and protects your family's interests. Four reasons to plan ahead:

Your Family - Making decisions today with the help of those close to you lets you make logical, well thought out plans which your family will appreciate.

Lower Costs - Waiting to make arrangements will cost your family more money. Payment in full must be made at the time of death when you can least afford to deplete your assets. Everyone can afford to make pre-need arrangements. It is a matter of choosing a payment plan that is right for you.

Securing Benefits - Millions of dollars in governmental death benefits go unclaimed each year. It is important for you to be aware of how to protect your potential benefits from Social Security, Veterans' Administration, or Medicaid. We can answer your questions and assist you in filing for these benefits.

Peace of Mind - Arranging today, before the death, is handling a family matter. Arranging at the time of death is dealing with a family crisis. Planning ahead…you have true peace of mind knowing you have taken care of everything.
