What is Pre-arranging?


Preplanning, also called prearranging, is taking care of your service details before the need arises.  In recent years, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of individuals choosing to preplan their own funeral.

Why Pre-arrange?


Everyday we plan ahead for situations and events, such as education, starting a family, vacations, weddings and retirement.  We even purchase insurance coverage for things that could happen, but may not, during the course of our lifetime (for example:  fire insurance for our home, car insurance for the possiblity of an accident, or personal life insurance).

All things considered, shouldn’t we also think ahead to preplan our funeral service?  It is never easy to think about arranging your funeral, but knowing loved ones wishes in advance is easier than coping with them in a time of need.

Benefits of Pre-arranging
