Funeral Pre-Arrangement Process

Take care of all the funeral pre-arrangement details and give you and your family the peace-of-mind you deserve.

The Basics of Planning

Here's a break-down of the process:

1. Decide To Act On This Need

2. Make An Appointment To Meet Funeral Director

3. Review Service Options

4. Select An Option That Fulfills Your Needs

5. Contact Your Funeral Director To Complete This Process

6. Make Your Wishes Known To Your Family/Executor

In the case of funeral pre-arrangement, another two important steps are involved:

  • • Write out your plan with as many details as possible.
  • • Send your plan to the funeral provider and provide a copy to your executor.

The Benefits for Pre-Paid Funeral Arrangements

There are many benefits to end-of-life planning. Here are the top ten reasons why you should consider making your funeral arrangements ahead of time:

1.

It means there will be fewer opportunities for argument and indecision about your funeral arrangements among family members after you're gone.


2.

Your survivors will never have to worry about doing the wrong thing when trying to decide upon finalizing your funeral arrangements.


3.

After you're gone, everything will be done your way.  You left directions.


4.

You have peace-of-mind now knowing that we have your wishes recorded by your hand to follow.


5.

After your death, there are no decisions to make that you would would not have been made aware of previously.


6.

Funeral pre-arranging is the responsible thing to do. It removes the financial stress from family members or executor/executrix.


7.

You can make complex decisions ahead of time when you have the time to think things through reducing the emotional stress left for others.


8.

Funeral pre-planning can involve pre-payment. This is then called pre-arranging when a contract is drawn and money has been placed against the contract.  This will save your family money and lessen  any financial uncertainties.


9.

Funeral pre-arranging can certainly alleviate that stress that you may have about what will happen when your services are needed seeing as you had selected them yourself.  Many people have told us that they sleep better once they have taken care of this step without that worry on the mind daily.


10.

You are protected against inflation with a pre-paid contract in place as it "locks in today's price" based upon the day it was written for use in the future once it's paid.


Why People Choose to Plan Ahead

We've had the privilege of assisting many families with their funeral pre-arranging. During the time we've spent with them, we've learned more about the reasons behind their decision to take funeral pre-arranging seriously.

What We've Heard Over the Years

  • • Pre-planning my funeral was my way of showing my family just how much I love them.
  • • In pre-paying for my funeral arrangements, I've lessened the financial stress on those people I leave behind.
  • • I'm very independent and have always made all my own decisions.
  • • Some say I like to be in control of everything and they're right!
  • • This way my family knows exactly what I want. No one has to get angry or fight, and no one has to feel guilty about making the wrong decision. When I'm gone, they will know what I want.
  • • I remember when my mother died. None of us kids knew what to do and absolutely none of us knew what she wanted. No one bothered to ask! I'm just not going to wait for my kids to ask me what I want. I'm going to tell them.
  • • I guess it's because I want things done my way. I want to provide my funeral pre-arrangements to our local funeral provider to make sure I get what I want.

These are just a few of the comments we've heard during funeral pre-arrangements.  Chances are pretty good that some of these statements are true for you as well.
