There are three basic types of prearrangements:
UNFUNDED: No money is paid but information and funeral wishes are written down and kept on file at the funeral home.
FUNDED IN TRUST: Wishes are written down and the funeral is paid in full and money is placed in a trust account.
PAYMENT PLAN: Wishes are written down and monthly payments are made or down and monthly payments are made through an insurance
What are my options?
TRADITIONAL: Visitation, funeral service, with burial purchase casket
TRADITIONAL WITH CREMATION: Visitation, funeral service, cremation, with burial-rent or purchase casket
CREMATION WITH SERVICE: Direct cremation with memorial service (Urn may be purchased)
CREMATION (Traditional): Direct cremation, visitation and funeral with ashes present (Urn may be purchased)
You may choose any combination of these options.
The Cost of the funerals are based on the services and products (caskets, urns, etc) that is purchased
