Preplanning

Be there for them after you die.

Preplan your funeral.

Losing a loved one is hard enough. Add in the many logistical and financial decisions that come with arranging a funeral or memorial service, and it can feel overwhelmingly stressful. By planning yours in advance, you can remove these extra burdens from your loved ones during an already difficult time, and allow your family the space to remember, connect, and begin to heal. You also make sure your final wishes are carried out how you want—not decided through someone else’s best guesses.

By making your final arrangements ahead of time, you also save your family an added financial burden. Not only does it eliminate the difficult question of who will pay, preplanning locks in inflation-proof rates for years to come. We also offer flexible payment plans, making advanced planning a more convenient option.

How we work with you to preplan:

An Advanced planner will work with you to create a personalized checklist and help you communicate all of your wishes and preferences, such as:

  • Gathering personal information for your obituary
  • Choosing a charity to direct donations to, if desired
  • Making note of any special instructions for your services and final disposition
  • Choosing burial or cremation
  • Choosing the location and type of service
  • Deciding whether you’d like to have a viewing or visitation
  • Selecting music and hymns, if desired
  • Selecting a style for your stationery and memorial register book
  • Including any customs, traditions, or religious rites that are important to you and your family
