Why Plan Ahead

Why Plan Ahead

There’s a lot that goes into planning a funeral, 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 can always 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.



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 can mean many things. Generally you are setting money aside to pay for your pre-planned services. In some cases it means that you save money by being protected from inflation and price changes. Not all forms of prepayment are guaranteeing todays pricing into the future. This is a very important detail to clarify when pre-planning. Pre-payments funds can be placed in a multitude of financial tools designated for your funeral: i.e. (trust, annuity, life insurance, irrevocable burial account, ect.). Prepaying also provides peace of mind for your family, who won’t have to figure out your funeral expenses when the time comes. .



What If I Move?

If the individual who has preplanned their service moves or passes away unexpectedly while traveling abroad, we have you covered. This is also part of preplanning. The next of kin should simply be instructed to contact the funeral home upon your passing. We have a resource network worldwide to get your loved one back home safely, whether it be 100 miles or 5,000 miles.
