You are here:   PRE-PLANNING


You have probably spent much time planning some of life’s most important moments. Hours have been spent planning your wedding, the birth of a child, family vacation, college education, and retirement. Planning and pre-planning gives you the peace of mind and the ability to make decisions without stress so you can carefully consider all options and select the best.

Pre-planning your final burial arrangements is just as important. By making these decisions today rather than at the time of death, you ease the burden on your loved ones during an emotional and stressful time. It is truly an act of love and consideration for your family when you pre-plan your final burial arrangements. There are also practical reasons to pre-plan. By planning today, your family will not only avoid over-spending during an emotional time, but also price increases caused by inflation and other real-world factors.
