The advantages of planning ahead.
All of us make plans in advance every day of our lives. We purchase concert tickets weeks ahead of time. We schedule dentist and doctor appointments regularly. We plan vacations long before we take them.
And for the last several years more and more people of all ages are planning something else-their own funerals. Why? The reason is simple. These people recognize that there are many advantages to planning one's funeral. They realize that one day a great deal of information about them will be needed by their families to settle their estates.
They are also more comfortable knowing that their personal wishes will be fulfilled once they're gone. And they want to avoid any unnecessary legal or family problems.
But perhaps most important, they care deeply about their families. And because so, they have arranged their own funerals ahead of time with pre-need funeral planning-sparing those they love this emotional and financial burden in the future. Few of us bother to keep good records of our personal and financial affairs. Unfortunately, disorganized or incomplete records can lead to costly complications, if something unexpected happens to you.
You should list all your biographical and financial information, including:
- A will
- Any children's names, addresses and telephone numbers
- Insurance policies
- Bank accounts and securities
- Safe deposit boxes
- Benefit entitlements
- Any other important documents
Then take a few minutes regularly to review this information and update it if necessary.

Once you have completed this form you may call and set up an appointment to bring in your information to further complete the process, mail it to us or submit it online and one of our directors will be glad to give you a call.
