"That which is good to be done, cannot be done too soon; and if it is neglected to be done early, it will frequently happen that it will not be done at all."
Bishop Mant



"An act of love, a tender and affectionate consideration for the needs of your family".

If you would like additional information on pre-planning a funeral, please do not hesitate to contact us by phone, in person, or by email. There is no cost or obligation for this information.

The death of a loved one is clinically documented as one of the most difficult and stressful of life's experiences.
Immediately following a death, there can be as many as 50 important decisions to be made in the planning of a meaningful funeral service.
Therefore, a suitable funeral service should be planned long before the time of need when decisions can be made without extra complications caused by the psychological and emotional effects of grief.


What is a Pre-Arranged Funeral?

  • A written funeral plan filed with the funeral director.
  • A practical way of determining and recording an individual's wishes regarding funeral services in advance.
  • It is not a difficult or complicated task.
  • It is simply an opportunity to carefully plan your arrangements.
  • It serves as a guide to family and friends.

Any type of funeral, whether simple or elaborate, can be pre-arranged.


Why Pre-Arrange?

There are advantages! Most people plan for an orderly conclusion to life with a Will, adequate life insurance benefits and pension plans. The prearranged funeral is also an important part of your estate planning.
Decisions can be made, with your own desires in mind, regarding the professional services required, the type of casket, suggestions for the funeral itself and preferences for earth burial, entombment or cremation.

When you discuss a prearranged funeral with a funeral director, it is your chance to ask questions an get clear, concise answers.
It is the time to be sure you fully understand what services are performed and why. This is also the time to determine what costs are involved. With this information in hand, intelligent, informed decisions can be made.
When a death occurs, a period of adjustment begins for family and friends. The prearranged funeral saves them from having to make important decisions pertaining to final arrangements during a time of emotional stress. It is a practical idea that makes sense.
