Why Plan Ahead

Why Plan Ahead

There’s a lot that goes into planning a memorial service and cremation, but making those arrangements beforehand gives you time to consider all of your options and make sure that you’re covering all of the necessary details. Still feeling unsure? Here are some of the most important reasons why planning ahead may be the best option.


  • Gather personal information for your obituary
  • Choose a charity to direct donations to, if desired.
  • Choose a crematory
  • Make note of any instructions for your services and final disposition.

Cremation Service

  • Select a Cremation Container and Cremation Casket.
  • Choose type of Service.
  • Select which photographs and memorabilia you'd like to display.
  • Consider any customs, traditions, or religious rites that are important to you and your family.
  • Choose a theme for memorialization items
  • Brainstorm any additional ways you'd like to personalize the services or pay tribute to you accomplishments, hobbies, personality, and life story.

Final Disposition

  • Choose a cementery cremation plot or columbarium for urn if appropriate.
  • Select a memorial or grave maker and inscription.
  • Decide who will keep your urn.
  • Decide who will scatter your ashes and where.

It's Easy

Fill out a form or meet with a member of our staff to put your plan in place. Anyone can create a plan, at any stage in their life, and you always can make changes if you wish.

You Decide

Preplanning lets you create your own unique life celebration. Including your family in the planning process can help them feel connected to you both in life and in death, knowing that your arrangements reflect your desires.

Relieve Your Family’s Burden

Preplanning relieves your family of that burden and gives them more time and energy to focus on healing and remembrance.

You Can Prepay

Prepayment generally means that you save money by being protected from inflation and price changes. We deposit all prepayments into a trust fund where it remains until needed. Prepaying also provides peace of mind for your family, who won’t have to figure out your cremation expenses when the time comes.

What If I Move?

We keep a record of your preplanned arrangements and any prepayments, and they’re easily transferable to any funeral home in the United States.
