Planning Ahead

It’s easy

 You  can take your time creating arrangements that best suit your needs and  preferences, and all you have to do is 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 make changes at a later date if  you wish.

It lets you decide how you’d like to be remembered.

 Creating  your own unique life celebration allows you to make sure that your  wishes and desires are respected upon your passing. However you decide  to be memorialized, pre-planning and preparation gives you control over  the personal decisions that must be made when a person moves on from  this life. Planning can be meaningful for your family, as well, if you  choose to include them in the process. It can help them to feel  connected to you both in life and in death, knowing that your  arrangements reflect exactly what you envisioned them to be. 

It takes the burden off of your family and friends.

 When  a loved one passes, the family faces an overwhelming number of tasks  and decisions, all while struggling through grief and a range of  difficult emotions. By taking care of your arrangements before the time  of need, you’re relieving them of that burden and giving them more time  and energy to focus on healing and remembrance. They won’t have to ask  themselves, “Am I making the right choices?” and can instead focus on  what matters: saying goodbye and celebrating your life journey with  those who cared about you most. 

It gives you the ability to pre-pay.

 While  pre-funding your funeral is certainly not required in order to  pre-plan, pre-payment means that your funds will be set aside and  protected against inflation and unforeseen increases in cost. Your  family won’t have to worry about payment, and can enjoy peace of mind  knowing that everything has been taken care of. We’d be happy to provide  you with more information and help you arrange for pre-funding of your  services.
