Funeral Pre-Planning

Planning your own funeral is not something that you may like to think about. In fact, we’re fairly confident that, if left to your own devices, you just might choose to avoid it altogether. (Our merchandise is under the section Why Come to Us)

But, what happens if you do? Let us say just two words: nothing good.

By avoiding end-of-life planning, you’re really giving up your authority over some of the most critical decisions you would ever make in your lifetime, leaving them to be made by relatives who are caught in the emotional turmoil of grief after losing someone they loved.

When you do the right thing, and decide to make your funeral pre-arrangements, you can do so at your own pace, when you feel calm, healthy, and rational.

We promise to make it as easy on you as possible. You can pre-arrange your funeral using our secure Pre-Arrange Online network, or visit us at the funeral home.

You can also make pre-arrangements for a loved one. If you have any questions or would prefer to speak to someone directly, please contact us.

About Funeral Pre-Planning
We commonly tell families that “pre-planning is smart.” If you want to know why, this page explains what is involved in pre-arrangement, the rewards of pre-planning, and what options are available.
Benefits of Pre-Planning
Can you name the four benefits of making your end-of-life decisions ahead of time? We can. And here they are. This page is for anyone interested in, yet undecided about, pre-planning.
Building a Legacy of Memories
As part of your final care plans, you may want to secure your memories and stories. We offer guidelines in preparing for your online memorial tribute, the Book of Memories™, and companion video.
Organ & Tissue Donation
Are you or a loved one considering organ donation? Our list of common questions will help in making that decision. We also invite you to speak with our knowledgeable staff.
Pre-Planning Checklist
There’s so much to consider. If you're making final arrangements for yourself or a loved one, this checklist will help you make sure every detail is handled properly.
Pre-Plan Online
If you’re ready to get started, you’ll find this four step online planning tool a snap to use. You’ll create a private account, empowering you to change or update your plan easily.
