Plan Ahead

What kind of funeral or cremation should we have?

This is a question only you can answer. What we can do is provide you with information that will give you options so you can make a decision that will suit the needs of your family to honor your loved one.

We can provide a variety of ways before and after the services. These services include, the removal of the deceased, obtaining required legal documents, preparing a loved one for viewing (which may include embalming) planning the service, either burial or cremation, arranging final disposition, providing facilities for the visitation and funeral service, and transporting the deceased and mourners to the final resting place. We can also provide the family with information for placing obituaries in the newspaper.

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 government 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.
