We plan for every aspect of life. Having a family, vacations, wedding, retirement are all planned. We prepare for what might happen such as fires, accidents or floods. But, because most of us do not like to think about death - we avoid making important funeral decisions in advance.

Now more than ever, it is important to plan ahead. Our way of life is more complicated. Family members often live in different states, dealing with government agencies can be frustrating, and the impact of inflation is felt by every household.

Family members making funeral arrangements immediately following a death often are confused and upset. Planning ahead prevents emotional mistakes and protects your family's interests  (taken from Being Prepared: A Practical Guide to Government Benefits & Funeral Planning).

One of the first things that are completed when someone comes to make pre-arrangements at the funeral home is a Biographical Information Form.  This form contains vital information that will be used to assist the Funeral Director prepare and complete the obituary, Death Certificates and organize the funeral services selected.

Please fill out the informational form below to get started and if you would like more information or if you have a question please contact me.
