Planning for the future is something that we do in quite a few areas of our lives. Yet, people are always asking us, "Why would someone pre-plan their funeral?" Now more than ever, it is important to plan ahead. Pre-planning frees the surviving family from making decisions at a difficult time, and provides great peace of mind for everyone. Concerned and thoughtful people are coming to us to arrange for their own funeral and burial needs.

Sometimes we have the false impression that if we have made a will or maybe told our children what we would like done when we die, that was all that was necessary to making our arrangements. Even though both of these things are important, they do not even start to cover the multitude of things that will have to be taken care of at the time of death. We have a complete folder called the "Wishes and Memories" book, which when completed, will give anyone a more complete understanding of what your wishes are. Most people find that pre-arranging gives them peace of mind; because they have taken the initiative to spare those they love the unnecessary hardship and complication. By making your pre-arrangements, you also make sure that spiraling inflation will never increase the cost of your funeral, and you will be assured your funeral service will be in accordance with your wishes, not someone else's.

We are fully qualified and licensed to help you with a pre-payment plan designed and approved specifically for funeral planning. Without cost or obligation, we will explain the pre-arrangement program for you. We can review the many funeral services and merchandise options available and other important details. You and your family will have the peace of mind your thoughtful action deserves.

Your pre-funded arrangements allow your life insurance benefits to assist your survivors with living expenses for the future. Your funeral cost won't be taken from their income. It's really a matter of thoughtfulness as well as providing sound financial management. Anyone can qualify.

Once your decisions are made, you tell us what choices you have made. We'll keep the information on file so there can be no doubt about your expressed wishes. Your loved ones won't need to ask, "Did we do the right thing?" All of that is eliminated because it is in writing. If you choose to prepay, you may choose the payment plan that best suits your budget. If you should relocate, you do not have to cancel because your plan goes with you.

Pre-planning allows you to lock in funeral expenses at today's costs. A complete price list is available upon request.

When pre-paying your end of life plans, we recommend using a company such as Purple Shield. Purple Shield has been operating in Canada since 1963, while their parent company began operations in 1902. When using a second company, this allows for "checks and balances" so you know your money is secure. If you would like additional information about Purple Shield, follow the link to their website.
