Family Service Counselor

Pre-planning ensures that your wishes are precisely followed, while your family is not burdened with the task of making emotionally difficult decisions.  Funding can be arranged to cover funeral costs so that no financial burden remains.

Decisions Made Early is a funeral pre-arrangement payment plan for selecting funeral services and merchandise before they are needed, often years before death actually occurs.

There are several advantages of pre-arrangement:


Without a doubt, the most important reason for pre-arranging your funeral is to spare your family numerous decisions at an emotionally difficult time.  During this stressful time, when reason is clouded, even the most sincere desire to create a fitting tribute can result in emotional overspending and other regretful decisions.


We often have special wishes concerning our funeral arrangements.  Decisions Made Early Provides you and your family the satisfaction of knowing everything will be taken care of according to your wishes.


If you choose to pay for your pre-arranged services and merchandise, those designated funds "freeze" the price of the funeral, protecting you from rising costs.  For your added protection, pre-arrangement funds are held by a legal reserve life insurance company,  Funeral Directors Life Insurance Company, (FDLIC) under the laws and supervision of the state and federal regulatory authority.  The price of your selected service is guaranteed at today's prices and 100% of the money you pay for your plan is deposited into an account under your name only; the funeral home will not receive compensation until your death.

Throughout your life, you have given thoughtful consideration to the important decisions you have made.  Sensible people like yourself have always prepared for those things that might happen by taking out fire or health insurance.  That's why being prepared for what will someday happen, makes even more sense.


1.  I would like to pre-arrange, but what if I move?
Because of the flexible nature of our pre-need contracts, your preferences for pre-arrangement may be transferred at any time in the event you move.  We can even recommend a reputable funeral home in your new community.

2.  What if I pre-arrange in my community and then die away from home?
If you are traveling or visiting another city when death occurs, your survivors should contact our funeral home immediately.  We will make all necessary arrangements for transfer.

3.  What if I change my mind about my arrangements?
Our funeral home is based on service to families.  We respect your wishes at all times and strive to meet the special needs and requests from you and your family, whether planning ahead or at the time of need.  Together we can adapt plans to meet your changing needs or desires.
