Why Plan Ahead?

Modern Service with Traditional DignitySM Since 1915

Having served hundreds of families since 1915, we realize how difficult planning a funeral is for people after the loss of a loved one. We understand that arranging a funeral involves making difficult decisions at a very emotional and highly charged time. We also understand that a funeral service does not have to cost a fortune. We know the value people place on family and the value of a dollar.

As a vital part of our unwavering commitment to excellence in service, we are always searching for ways to greatly reduce this emotional and oftentimes financial burden that accompanies the loss of a close loved one. Funeral prearrangement meets this need.

There are so many events that we plan ahead for in our lives: birthdays, weddings, vacations, and yes, also funerals. People are increasingly purchasing their funerals ahead of time because of the obvious advantage of paying for them at today’s prices. However, the benefits go much further.

Planning Ahead

Knowing that things will be taken care of according to their specific wishes relieves people of worry and anxiety as they get older. It also avoids financial burdens from falling on their children, grandchildren or other family members.
