Funeral Pre-Planning

Planning your own funeral is not something that you may like to think about. In fact, we’re fairly confident that, if left to your own devices, you just might choose to avoid it altogether.

But, what happens if you do? Let us say just two words: nothing good.

By avoiding end-of-life planning, you’re really giving up your authority over some of the most critical decisions you would ever make in your lifetime, leaving them to be made by relatives who are caught in the emotional turmoil of grief after losing someone they loved.

When you do the right thing, and decide to make your funeral pre-arrangements, you can do so at your own pace, when you feel calm, healthy, and rational.

We promise to make it as easy on you as possible. You can pre-arrange your funeral using our secure Pre-Arrange Online network, or visit us at the funeral home.

You can also make pre-arrangements for a loved one. If you have any questions or would prefer to speak to someone directly, please contact us.
