Why Plan Ahead

Serving your family as if they were our own

Why Plan Ahead

There’s a lot that goes into planning a funeral, but making those arrangements beforehand gives you time to consider all of your options and make sure that you’re covering all of the necessary details. Still feeling unsure? Here are some of the most important reasons why planning ahead may be the best option.

Benefits Are Financial And Emotional

Important events in life require pre-planning. Births, weddings, graduations, anniversaries and retirement command our best planning efforts to ensure success. However, we may neglect planning for the most significant event of all, a funeral. We would never dream of waiting two days before a wedding to begin our plan. Here are some good reasons to plan in advance:

  • Your loved ones will not have the burden of making difficult decisions
  • Your precise wishes are fulfilled - choice of casket, vault or urn; ground burial, mausoleum, entombment or cremation
  • You will never pay more for the goods and services selected today, regardless of inflation
  • Helps to protect loved ones from disagreements, disputes and confusion
  • Decisions are made without emotional stress and time constraints
  • Shields your assets
  • It's a kind considerate gesture to those you leave behind
  • Provides vital information needed by the State of Oklahoma

It's Easy

Fill out a form or meet with a member of our staff to put your plan in place. Anyone can create a plan, at any stage in their life, and you always can make changes if you wish.

You Decide

Preplanning lets you create your own unique life celebration. Including your family in the planning process can help them feel connected to you both in life and in death, knowing that your arrangements reflect your desires.

Relieve Your Family’s Burden

Preplanning relieves your family of that burden and gives them more time and energy to focus on healing and remembrance.
