Pre-Need

Pre-Need

Pre-need, direct cremation, memorials, vaults, vases, monuments, grass markers, graveside services, and mausoleums.

 

Togetherness

A husband and wife can express their wishes to each other. This helps to ease the heartache and stress that one will feel at the time of the others death.

 

Satisfaction

Family burial estates and funeral merchandise can be selected by all family members, thus insuring everyone’s satisfaction.

 

Price Freezing
Cemetery and funeral prices are almost sure to
increase, pre-need allows the cost to be locked in ahead of time at today’s prices.

 

Conserves Insurance

Life insurance proceeds can be used by the family to help adjust to the loss of income that a death causes, instead of being spent on cemetery and funeral expenses

 

Payments

Budgeted payments can be made out of current income, instead of on a cash basis or out of insurance proceeds at the time of death.

 

Peace of Mind

Because decisions are made together, beforehand, there will be no wondering, “did I do the right thing?” after the time of death occurs. Instead, you have peace of mind knowing that everything was done just as the person would have wanted.
