Listed below are some of the benefits our prearrangement program offers and why you should consider prearranging today:
• Can remove financial burden from loved ones
• Simplifies the decision making process for loved ones
• Gives you peace of mind
• If funded, there will be no out of pocket expenses for guaranteed merchandise and services.

• Prearrangements are transferable to any funeral home
• Only 2 simple health questions and NO physical exam if you would like a payment plan.
Why plan ahead?
The decision process has to start almost immediately. This is an extremely emotional time for your loved ones and these decisions can seem simple but when combined with the flood of emotions, they can become quite difficult. By pre-planning you make all the major decisions for your family, which also insures your wishes will be known, and by pre-funding you take most if not all financial responsibility off of your family.
How do I start?
Starting the pre-planning process can be as easy as a phone call. Our funeral directors will guide you through the pre-arrangement process. You can either set up an appointment to come in and meet with one of our directors or if you are unable to come to the funeral home, our staff will be happy to come to come to you. We strive to serve and protect our families, making that our top priority
Do I have to pre-pay?
The most important part of the planning process is just that, planning. You will be given the option of pre-paying, paying over time, using a current insurance policy as future payment, or just recording information so your wishes are known.
What are the benefits of pre-paying?
Like the cost of everything, the cost of funeral services go up over time. By pre-paying the funeral, you will have the peace of mind knowing that everything is taken care of and that your family will not have to worry about financial matters in their time of grief.
Do I have to come to the funeral home?
Our funeral directors will accommodate you, whatever the need. Basic arrangements can be done at the funeral home, by phone and mail, and yes, we even make house calls.
