Pre-Arranged Funeral Plans
We plan for our wedding, our children’s education, family vacations, and other significant expected life events. We also plan for the unexpected events of life by purchasing home, auto, and medical insurance. Pre-arranged funeral planning is no different.

Many who have undergone the emotional strain of arranging a funeral within hours of losing a loved one have made the choice to pre-plan their own funeral. Doing so lifts the burden from their loved ones by relieving decision-making pressure at a time of grief and emotional stress.
Funeral arrangements are a deeply personal choice. Pre-planning provides you with the time needed to make practical, detailed decisions that reflect your standards, lifestyle, taste and budget. And we assure you and your family that the choices you make will be carried out as planned.
You do not have to set aside funds, but doing so protects you against escalating funeral costs. By locking in today’s funeral costs and ensuring that the necessary funds are set aside, you help relieve yourself of unnecessary future worry and your survivors of an unexpected expense.
There’s a lot that goes into planning a funeral, but making arrangements beforehand gives you time to consider all of your options and make sure that you’re covering all of the necessary details.
The vital statistics that you submit with your plan will include your father’s name, your mother’s maiden name, your level of education, and your social security number.
This includes fraternal, service, or union membership, along with any special recognition you might have. In addition, all of your friends and relatives who should be notified in the event of your passing.
If you’re a veteran, you will need to include your military service, branch rank, date of enlistment, date of discharge, name(s) of war/conflict(s) toured, and serial number.
