What is Pre-Planning?

Pre-planning involves coordinating the details of your burial ahead of time. This can include reviewing your burial preference, purchasing a grave, and various other burial details. .

Why Pre-Plan?

Pre-planning can help you and your family…

Reduce Stress

Losing a loved one is an exhausting experience. Being forced to plan their final arrangements only adds to this stress. By pre-planning your final arrangements, you can ensure that your family will not experience added emotional distress during an already difficult time.

Save Money

Final arrangements can be costly. However, by pre-planning your arrangements now, you can lock in your burial needs at today’s prices. Pre-planning your arrangements also prevents your family from absorbing the costs associated with your burial.

Rest Peacefully

Peace of mind—we all strive for it. Pre-planning provides you with peace of mind knowing that you have a secured place on sacred ground for eternity, and that your family will be free from added emotional and financial stress at the time of your passing.

Starting the Process

Have a conversation with your family about your wishes. Some common questions include...

  1. Do you want traditional burial or cremation?
  2. Do you want in-ground or above-ground burial?
  3. Do you want to be buried with or near other family members?
  4. What type of memorialization do you prefer?
  5. How private do you want your burial service to be?
