In addition to funeral services our staff also provides the following services:



Pre Planning

There are many advantages to planning a funeral ahead of time. By pre-planning a funeral difficult decisions will not have to be made during a time of grieving and stress. You will be able to visit a potential resting site and have time to decide on and compare options.Thought can be made to whether or not cremation is an option you may want to choose. Your wishes can be put into writing to give your family direction when the time for the funeral comes. Our staff will help you plan so that your family can carry out your wishes. We offer irrevocable trusts, revocable trusts, and pre purchased burial plot item contracts, which are setup in order to protect your assets for the purpose of carrying out the funeral of your wishes. These contracts are very beneficial for someone who is approaching Title 19.
