About Funeral Pre-Planning
Without a doubt, dying is one of the few events in life that is certain to occur. You may never marry, or have children; but without fail, one day you will take your last breath. For most of us, this is a disquieting thought. Yet it is still something you should plan for – if not for your own peace-of-mind, then for the well-being of those you’ll leave behind.
At some time, you may have to arrange the funeral services of a loved one or a friend. Maybe you already have and remember how difficult the funeral arrangement may have been. In addition to grieving about the loss of that special someone in your life; there still is the immediate and real need to have to make the funeral arrangements and the concern of how will it be paid.
Pre-Planning provides peace of mind for everyone involved. It removes the financial and emotional burden of making decisions during a difficult time. Today, more and more people are planning their funeral in advance. Pre-planning, or pre-arranging, as it is commonly known, is simply taking care of your service details before the need arises. It allows you to answer important questions such as: Do you want burial or cremation? Do you want a traditional funeral, or something simple?

Your funeral can be as simple or as detailed as you wish to have it and we will know how to best assist your family in carrying out your wishes when the time comes.

The Six Common Reasons for Pre-Planning a Funeral
Today, more individuals and families are making the decision to prearrange their funerals than ever before. Because of the factors such as inflation, fewer extended family members living close by, and other changes in our society, planning your own funeral can make a lot of sense.
In a recent survey, these were the most common reasons people gave for prearranging their own funerals:
Communicates your wishes
Reduces stress for friends and family at an already emotional time
It may guarantee your family will never have to pay more for your funeral — no matter what happens with inflation
Shows you care
Relieves your loved ones of the financial responsibility
