Other Services We Offer:
The loss of a loved one is often unexpected, requiring family members to make last-minute funeral arrangements during a time of great sorrow and stress. Pre-planning for these needs allows for more
relaxed and thoughtful decision-making, and does not inflict undue strain on the deceased’s family.
Pre-planning involves a number of simple steps. First, choosing the type of grave desired; single or family lot? Monument or flat marker? Which section of the cemetery? What price range? Has
cremation been discussed? Perhaps entombment in the new mausoleum is an option. Once considered affordable only by the wealthy, entombment is currently gaining popularity because of it’s simplicity and economy.
Other issues involved in pre-planning include:
- Having sufficient insurance, with both husband and wife being knowledgeable about their policies.
- Having the necessary information to claim benefits if the deceased is a veteran.
- Investigating Social Security death benefits.
- Having a current, valid will.
- Consulting with the funeral director about options, costs and pre-arrangements.
- Consulting with clergy regarding specific requests for services and pre-arrangements.
- Pre-purchase of gravesites and markers, mausoleum crypts or cremation niches to assure satisfaction and avoid hasty decisions.
Resolving those issues in advance lessens the burden on family and friends at the time of loss and relieves them of uncertainty of having to decide “ what you would have wanted”. Pre-planning allows you, your family and friends to
know that all arrangements are to your liking.
