Why should I pre-plan my funeral?
It helps alleviate the emotional and financial burden on your grieving family by planning your own funeral in advance.
Do I have to come to the funeral home to prearrange my funeral?
No. I am more than happy to come to [their] house where they feel more at ease and comfortable.
How do I select my casket or funeral merchandise?
I have a casket/vault book...whatever you like and what fits your budget.
Are there benefits to setting funds aside for my prearranged funeral ahead of time?
Most definitely. You have, in essence, purchased a funeral at today's cost for a funeral in the future.
Am I protected if your funeral home goes out of business?
Yes. It states right on the paperwork that you retain the right to change your designated funeral home and beneficiary.
