Pre-Planning

The Pre-Arrangement Concept

A Gift to the Living from the Living

BENEFITS OF PRE-ARRANGEMENT

1. TOGETHERNESS
A husband and wife can openly share their wisdom and express their wishes to each other, therefore saving their loved ones heartache, expense, and inconvenience at the time of their death.
2. SATISFACTION
On a pre-arrangement basis a family burial estate and/or funeral merchandise can be selected by all family members, thus guaranteeing everyone's satisfaction.
3. PRICE-FREEZING
Based on the last five decades we know the cost of cemetery and funeral arrangements will continue to increase. Pre-arrangement allows the costs to be frozen at today's prices.
4. CONSERVES INSURANCE
Life insurance is for the living, not the deceased. Most life insurance is purchased to allow the family time to adjust to the loss of income that a death causes. If pre-arrangements are not made, a large amount of insurance proceeds can be spent on cemetery and funeral items adding financial burdens to loved ones left behind.
5. PAYMENTS
The cost of a cemetery estate or funeral arrangements is a debt every family owes and will some day pay. Taking care of these needs today, can be done out of current income, and budget payments can be made. Payment at the time of death is traditionally made on a cash basis.
6. PEACE OF MIND
When a death occurs in any family the grief is tremendous and the healing time very long. Pre-arrangement will have a positive impact on your family simply because both husband and wife have made their decisions together. This peace of mind provides benefits far beyond dollars spent.
