In todayís society, many people recognize the importance of estate planning. Wills and life insurance help ensure the financial and emotional well being of survivors in the event of our death.
Recently there has been considerable advertising for and hard-sell tactics of preneed/prepaid funeral plans. Quite often these plans are sold through a preneed burial plan company by commissioning sales persons, not licensed practicing funeral directors.
We at Collierís Funeral Home believe PREPLANNING SHOULD BE AN INFORMATIVE PROGRAM.
Even if no formal arrangements are made in advance, the process of seeking information can benefit those who must make important decisions immediately following the death of a family member or friend.
Through funeral planning in advance of need, and often prefinancing, many questions about death and funerals can be answered; and some of the problems associated with death can be minimized. For some people, planning in advance gives assurance of a funeral that will represent their personal beliefs or lifestyle. For others, it is a way to help their families deal knowledgeably with their death.
|The experience and assistance of a licensed funeral service practitioner will be helpful in the planning of a funeral service in advance of need. A personally chosen director/practitioner can provide important information about available services, facilities and merchandise, costs and possible financial benefits for survivors. Responsible suggestions based on professional training and experience help survivors with the death and grief crises.
Not all prearranged funerals are prepaid, and it is not required to prepay a prearranged funeral. Some families simply wish to record their wishes and desires to help those left behind.
Collierís Funeral Home is a third generation funeral service establishment family owned and operated serving the needs of the community for over fifty years. We are here to serve and inform. All of our prearrangement counseling is provided by licensed practicing funeral directors of our staff.
For further information on preplanning or any other aspect of funeral service, we invite you to call our office. There is no obligation on your part.
