It just makes sense ...
Today, more and more people are choosing to plan their funerals in advance. We find that there are three basic reasons why our families think this makes sense.
You can relieve an emotional burden from those you love. By being able to make sound decisions in advance, without stress, you can free your loved ones from this responsibility. This allows them to concentrate on supporting each other, rather than being asked to make major decisions at a very emotional time.
You can express your own wishes. Often families are confused about what is proper. They may agonize over what you would have wanted. By selecting your options in advance, there is no doubt. And, you can even change your mind later, if you wish.
You can relieve the financial burden from those you love. If you also choose to handle the funding of your funeral in advance, we have plans that will assure that your survivors will never have to pay additional funds for the services and merchandise you selected.
