The purpose of pre-planning is to help families identify their needs, choose a service that will meet those needs and be consistent with their values. There are many advantages to planning a funeral in advance. First and foremost is the release from difficult and emotional decision-making during a time of grieving and stress. Pre-planning your services is one of the greatest gifts you can give to your family.
It is our honor to provide a meaningful, affordable
life celebration for your loved one.
You can decide the style of service you would like to have: traditional, graveside, memorial. Thought may be given to whether cremation is an option in the place of burial or entombment. You will be able to visit a potential resting site and have time to compare options. Other factors to be considered are music selection, casket bearers, who will officiate over the service. Your wishes can be put into writing to give your family direction when the time for the funeral comes. Our staff will help you plan so that your family may carry out your wishes.

- Put your preferences in writing and give copies to your family members and attorney.
- If your preferences are in your will, they may not be found or read until after the funeral.
- If your preferences in a safe deposit box, they may be unavailable as your family may need to make arrangements during a holiday or on a weekend.
- It's a good idea to review your preferences every few years.
