As with any funeral or memorial service, the family will need to make many decisions. When we meet with the families to make funeral arrangements, we will discuss each step with you, walking you through the next few days and aiding you in deciding what you want. Our attentive staff is dedicated to accommodating all the needs and requests of the families that we serve. Our purpose is to comfort and support the families from the first moment they contact us.
Families may request a formal visitation (with or without an open casket) followed by the interment of the deceased. Some families request the use the facilities for an evening viewing, with a church service and burial the next morning. In addition to traditional services there is cremation, with or with out a viewing or service and these options are outlined below.
So please, take a moment...when you think about it... it really makes sense.
You have spent a lifetime taking care of your family. That responsibility should not be overlooked in death. Pre-planning your funeral is one of the most responsible, caring things you can do for your family. It truly is a sensible act of love.
Pre-planning allows you to make objective decisions in a stress-free emotional state. It allows you to make arrangements exactly as you want them, relieving your loved one’s of any guesswork. With all the details taken care of in advance, your family is able to concentrate on themselves and their families during their time of loss.
Pre-planning is also intelligent financial planning. It ensures that money will be available to pay for your funeral or the funeral of a loved one. The cost of a funeral depends on what you select. Therefore, you can protect your family by choosing what you want and save money by securing its cost. Through the Pennsylvania Funeral Directors Association, we are able to offer you several options of funding for your pre-planned funeral services. Whether you are living on a fixed income or planning for your retirement, we have a plan to meet your needs. Our experienced, licensed funeral directors will help find the plan that is right for you.
