Why Plan Ahead

Why Plan Ahead

There’s a lot that goes into planning a funeral. Here are some important reasons why planning ahead may be the best choice for you and your family.

It's Easy

Fill out a form or meet with a member of our staff to put your plan in place. Anyone can create a plan at any stage in their life. You can always make changes if you wish.



You Decide

Preplanning lets you create your own unique life celebration. Including your family in the planning process can help them feel connected to you both in life and in death, knowing your arrangements reflect your desires.



Relieve Your Family’s Burden

Preplanning relieves your family of that burden and gives them more time and energy to focus on healing and remembrance.



You Can Prepay

Prepaying can save you money by protecting you from inflation and price changes. We deposit all prepayments into a trust fund where it remains until needed and can earn interest. Prepaying also provides peace of mind for your family and removes the burden of considering funeral expenses during an already difficult time.



What If I Move?

Your preplanned arrangements and all prepayments are easily transferable to any funeral home in the United States.



Where Do I Start?

First, check out our preplanning checklist  to help you consider all your possibilities. Then you can preplan online using our form to create your personalized arrangements or you can schedule a time to meet with our staff to discuss your options and make a plan.
