There are many benefits to planning ahead.

Funeral preplanning provides peace of mind for you and your family. It relieves your loved ones of unnecessary concern and stress about making difficult decisions as to what type of service you would want.

It eases the financial burden on your family. When you prepay your funeral service, we will guarantee the service that you selected at today's price. There are different programs available to prepay your funeral. There is funeral insurance and there is funeral trust, which are regulated by the Public Utilities Board to ensure your money is safe. Many payment options are available to suit your individual needs including monthly payment plans.

It shows you care and reduces the stress placed on your family at a difficult and emotional time. Many families are separated by distance and when death occurs it can be comforting to those at a distance to know that their loved one has made arrangements with the funeral home regarding the type of service he or she would want.

The decisions you make regarding prearrangements are put in writing to ensure your wishes will be carried out.

The information for the legal documentation can be kept on file at our funeral home, and your family will not have to search to find the required information at the time of need.

Funeral prearrangements can be transferred to another funeral home. Should the ownership of the funeral home change, you move, or decide you would like a different funeral home to provide you with the required services, your funeral insurance policy can be transferred without any penalty or loss to you.
