One of life’s only certainties is that, someday, each of us will die. We all want to live a long and healthy life. But, it doesn’t always happen that way. It makes no difference what your present age or health may be, planning ahead is the wise thing to do. Planning your funeral today can help you protect your loved ones from excess cost and added grief later, when your death occurs.
Planning can be as simple as discussing your desires with your family members. Let them know what type of funeral you desire, including whether you want something simple or more elaborate. Talking things over today can help guide your loved ones later. It can help your survivors make sound decisions during a most difficult time.
You may wish to take things a step further, and visit with us to discuss your particular needs and desires. We’d be pleased to show you the many options available in services and merchandise. You may place your desires in writing, including important information we would need later, for legal documents and obituary death notices, if desired. We would maintain this information in our files, for the benefit of your family, when your death occurs. There is no cost or obligation on your part.
Today, many people completely pre-plan and pre-pay for their funeral services. The advantage is that all items of services and merchandise are guaranteed to be paid in full at the time of your death, protecting your loved ones from extra cost.
Funds are placed in what is called an irrevocable mortuary trust. The interest which accumulates helps pay for future increases in costs, and everything purchased today will be guaranteed when your death occurs.
It’s the ultimate way to protect your family, and it can provide you with tremendous peace of mind in knowing that everything will be taken care of.
