Preplanning — A Gift for Those You Love

If planning your own funeral today seems difficult to think about, imagine how hard it will be for your loved ones to plan for it at the time of need.

You can save your family from that added burden – at a time of great emotional stress – by taking the time now to reflect on some very important decisions.Whether you are preplanning for yourself or choosing for a loved one, casket selection is a very personal decision and an expression of your feelings. You may select the beauty of wood or the brilliance of fine metal. You may prefer tailored simplicity or a more elaborate design. A casket selection which reflects the personality and taste of your loved one can be your final tribute to their life.
