One of the biggest concerns as we age is how our family will support themselves when we’re gone. Costs continue to rise, and as incomes dwindle throughout the retirement years younger spouses and children may have a difficult time making ends meet after paying for final expenses for their lost loved ones. Funeral preplanning allows you the opportunity to ensure that your family is taken care of when you’re gone by defining and even pre-paying for your final expenses–something that can be a true gift to your family.

 

Making Decisions

There are many decisions to be made before you pass–whether to choose burial or less-expensive cremation, and whether or not to have a memorial service. Funerals are an important ritual for the living, a ritual that allows them to say goodbye and provide support for one another. Funeral preplanning doesn’t have to be an elaborate affair and our considerate and knowledgeable team will be available to work with you every step of the way.
