A woman consoling grieving woman

When a death in the family occurs, there are numerous decisions that must be made in a very short amount of time. Often, the person who was closest to the deceased is the one who shoulders this heavy burden. 

To make matters worse, an immediate financial strain is placed  on surviving family members.

Decisions Made Early℠

When you participate in the Decisions Made Early℠ program, you will first be guided through the process of funeral preplanning. You will be able to put your wishes in writing and file them with the funeral home. This is a free service we offer because we have seen how meaningful these simple plans can be to grieving families at the time of loss.

Next, You can decide whether paying for services in advance is right for you. With the Decisions Made Early℠ program, it is possible to pay for your anticipated funeral expenses in advance. The plan can be customized to fit your current budget. Our Decisions Made Early℠ plans can also come with insurance protection, meaning that if an unexpected loss occurs before the balance is paid, your contract will still be covered.
