  • Plan Ahead


No one likes to think about death, let alone plan for it. However, planning ahead just makes sense. Preplanning is truly one of the most thoughtful and loving things you can do for your family.

When a death occurs, there are many decisions that must be made at that time. By preplanning your funeral, you relieve your family of having to make important arrangements during a period of great stress and grief, a time when people are not thinking very clearly and may not know what to do because you never made your wishes known.
