     Pre-planning one’s funeral can seem like a daunting task. In reality it’s a simple process that we guide you through, giving you a sense of comfort knowing your wishes will be carried out. You will have the opportunity to choose the type of service you prefer and make known your wishes as to the type of merchandise that suits you. Frequently at arrangement conferences I hear, “I wonder what Dad would have wanted?” Families often tell me that they were relieved to have readings, music, and flower preferences of their loved one preplanned.

     Most often individuals choose to prefund their funeral. This gives you the added comfort of knowing those funds will be protected in a funeral trust or burial insurance policy. In cases in which the help of Medical Assistance becomes necessary, the preplanned funds will not count toward one’s assets.
