Preplanning Services

Throughout our lives, we anticipate and plan for many of life’s most important events: our wedding, our first home, the birth of our children, family vacations and retirement. We plan ahead so that we can anticipate our family’s needs and make sure that all the details are taken care of. Why then, do so many people leave life’s most significant event to their loved ones to plan during a time of sadness and distress? Doesn’t it make sense to plan your funeral and cemetery arrangements ahead of time so that your family won’t have to?

By planning ahead, you can:

  • Help ease your family's emotional burden.
    Preplanning helps you protect your loved ones from the stress of making difficult funeral and financial decisions at a time of emotional upheaval. It also helps to eliminate emotional overspending by removing the guesswork about what you would have wanted.

    The good news is that you don’t leave your family the pain of making critical decisions when they are least prepared. When you preplan, your family won’t have to guess and make hurried decisions that they can’t undo.
  • Avoid difficult decisions at a stressful time.
    We all realize that the best decisions are always those that are made calmly, rationally and with ample information at hand. That’s why it makes such good sense to plan ahead and take care of as many of the decisions as possible so that difficult choices won’t be left to the ones you love the most.
  • Ensure that your wishes are known.
    At some time or another, most of us have probably talked or joked with others about what type of funeral or memorial service we might have. But would your loved ones really know what you would have wanted? Take the time to make and record these important decisions now, together with the people you love.
