Burial or Cremation?
You may choose between burial or cremation. Sometimes this decision can be a difficult one. Some people know exactly what they want because their loved one has made it clear and to the point of their desire. But for some it can be a hard decision, especially when wishes were never stated, or finances are playing a part. Our staff is here and able to assist you to come to the perfect decision for you and your family.
If you decide on burial, then it is time to select the casket of choice. If cremation is your choice, then you’ll need to select your urn of choice.
Why plan ahead?
- Peace of Mind – Instead of the emotional strain of having to plan a funeral in a few hours, you have the choice to pre-plan your own funeral. By doing this, it lifts the burden from your family/loved ones. They don’t have the pressure of spur of the moment decision-making during a time of emotional stress and grief.
- Lower Cost – By planning ahead, you know the costs and you can set aside funds to pay for your service. This can lock-in your funeral prices and protect you from escalating funeral costs of the future.
- Personal Wishes – Your funeral choices are your personal choice. By pre-planning you can ensure that your personal wishes are carried out. Pre-planning provides you with the necessary time to make detailed decisions that match your wishes and budget.
PRE-PLANNING DOES NOT MEAN PRE-PAYMENT
There are many advantages to planning a funeral ahead of time. By pre-planning a funeral, difficult decisions will not have to be made during a time of grieving and stress. You will be able to visit a potential resting site and have time to decide on and compare options. Thought can be made to whether cremation is an option you may want to choose. Your wishes can be put into writing to give your family direction when the need arises. Our staff will help you plan so that your family can carry out your wishes.
You can protect you and your family from inflation. By paying on your plan to ensure your expenses are covered when needed. Once paid, your prices are frozen.
