Why Plan Ahead

There’s a lot that goes into planning a funeral, but making those arrangements beforehand gives you time to consider all of your options and make sure that you’re covering all of the necessary details.

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 that 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

Prepayment generally means that you save money by being protected from inflation and price changes.

Prepaying also provides peace of mind for your family, who won’t have to figure out your funeral expenses when the time comes.

We offer multiple ways to prepay for your final arrangements, including both trust and insurance options.

What If I Move?

We keep a record of your preplanned arrangements and any prepayments, and they’re 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.

If you'd like to start the process without paying, use our planning 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.

You can also plan and pay online in the comfort of your home with our online store.
