Pre-Planning

Pre-Planning enables you to sit down with the funeral director to
consider alternatives, make decisions and ensure that your wishes are
fulfilled.  Death is a difficult subject to discuss, however doing so in
advance of need permits you
to make thoughtful decisions without grief or stress.

Pre-Planning minimizes the financial burden that survivors must
assume. When you select your options, merchandise and services that
you prefer, you also have the opportunity to prepay for your
arrangements at today's prices.

Pre-Planning your funeral arrangements allows you the comfort of
knowing with certainty that your wishes and financial obligations are
well in hand.  You minimize the possibility of disagreement among
family members and eliminate unplanned financial obligations for your
loved ones.

Finally, Pre-Planning provides you and your family with peace of mind.
 Everything is taken care of according to your wishes.  Pre-Planning is
a gift that you give to your loved ones.

Do I have to pay for my own funeral now?
No.  Many people just want to have their final arrangements known in
advance.  Pre-Planning enables you to decide upon the type of
ceremony you want.  You may select a casket, and address other
details that must be handled upon your death.  Knowing your wishes
is the most important aspect of Pre-Planning.  Sparing your loved
ones the need to gather information, make a number of decisions and
address the financial aspects of a funeral are also important reasons
to Pre-Plan.

Do funeral prices increase?
Like everything, prices are determined by the economy, and by costs.  
However, when you prepay for your funeral arrangements, you lock in
a fixed price for your merchandise and services.  Pre-Planning is a
wise financial decision.

Is my funeral prepayment secure?
When you make advance payments for funeral-related services and
merchandise, your funds are placed in an irrevocable trust in
accordance with state law.  The trust is secure: it is insured and your
investment earns interest
over time.
