About Funeral Pre-Planning

Planning your own cremation service is not something that you may like to think about. In fact, we’re fairly confident that, if left to your own devices, you just might choose to avoid it altogether.

But, what happens if you do? Let us say just two words: nothing good.
By avoiding end-of-life planning, you’re really giving up your authority over some of the most critical decisions you would ever make in your lifetime, leaving them to be made by relatives who are caught in the emotional turmoil of grief after losing someone they loved.
When you do the right thing, and decide to make your cremation pre-arrangements, you can do so at your own pace, when you feel calm, healthy, and rational.
We promise to make it as easy on you as possible. You can pre-arrange your cremation using our secure Pre-Arrange Online network, or by visiting us to speak directly with a member of our staff.
You can also make pre-arrangements for a loved one. If you have any questions or would prefer to speak to someone directly, please contact us at 618-741-7835.

When is the Best Time to Pre-Plan Your Cremation?

We’d like to say “right now”, but know you may not be emotionally ready to take on this task. Perhaps the best time to begin making your cremation pre-arrangements is when you have a family you wish to protect from the emotional and financial burdens they will carry when you leave them with no plan at all.

By taking time now to collect cremation cost information and calmly making choices related to your own funeral arrangements, you’ll be protecting your family against the stress of having to make these decisions at a time of extreme emotional stress. This way you can carefully choose specific items you want and need… and pay for them now.
