Advance Planning

Did you know that there are approximately 200 separate activities that must be conducted and coordinated within 48 hours of a death? With advance planning, most of the difficult decisions can be made before the time of need - sparing loved ones from struggling to make correct choices at a time when their emotions can make it difficult.

Just as people both young and old carry health and life insurance to protect their families, establishing a pre-arranged funeral can protect them from financial and emotional burdens.

While our funeral directors are trained to ease that burden and help families make informed decisions, there's no question that pre-arranged funerals offer many advantages.

Because people are living longer and families are often scattered around the country, advance planning is the responsible action that provides helpful guidance, emotional support and required information to those who will survive others in their family. If one does not plan for the inevitable end of their life, then one day a great deal of responsibility will be placed on the shoulders of a spouse or children for final arrangements and settlement of the estate.
