Why Plan Ahead?

Peace of Mind
It is a good feeling to know that your arrangements are taken care of and will not be a burden on the people you care most about. You may also find it comforting to know that you have done all you could to avoid family disagreements and questions over what you would have wanted. Many who have undergone the emotional strain of arranging a funeral or cremation within hours of losing a loved one have made the choice to pre-plan. Doing so lifts the burden from their loved ones by relieving decision-making pressure at a time of grief and emotional stress. Time and again families have told us how thankful they felt that their loved one had cared enough to plan ahead.

By planning ahead, you control the cost and avoid emotional overspending. When you pre-plan with us, we will show you the total cost today based on your preferences. You do not have to set aside funds for your plan, but doing so protects you against escalating funeral costs. At our Pennsylvania locations we offer two ways to set funds aside, Final Expense Insurance or an Irrevocable Trust which is administered by a bank trustee. Should you choose to pre-pay with either option, we will give you a written guarantee that you have an inflation proof plan locked in at today's lower costs. By locking in today's lower costs and ensuring that the necessary funds are set aside, you help relieve yourself of unnecessary worry about future prices and your survivors of an unexpected expense. We also offer affordable monthly payment plans for pre-arrangement.

Personal Choice
Funeral arrangements are a deeply personal choice. By planning ahead, a tribute ceremony will be provided in accordance with your wishes. You can determine the type of service, decide what merchandise is appropriate, select the clergy or celebrant, music, scripture, readings, flowers and pallbearers right down to the smallest detail. Pre-planning provides you with the time needed to make practical, detailed decisions that reflect your standards, lifestyle, taste and budget. And we assure you and your family that the choices you make will be carried out as planned.


Life Choices

Most of us plan ahead in life. We plan for our wedding, our children's education, family vacations, and other significant expected life events. We also plan for the unexpected events of life by purchasing home, auto and medical insurance.

Understanding the benefits of planning ahead has prompted many to take the step to pre-plan their own funeral.
