Question #1What can be done prior to death occurring?
Answer:In the case of an imminent death, families can still meet with a funeral director to record wishes and make pre-arrangement decisions.

Question #2Can I make pre-arrangement decisions at an earlier age when death is not imminent?
Answer:Yes. Families can meet with a pre-need counselor to record wishes and make pre-arrangement decisions years in advance of death. These decisions can also be pre-funded through a pre-need trust or insurance contract, freezing the cost of the services, thus guarding against future inflation. (For more information concerning pre-funded contracts, read Question #1 under "Prepaid Funeral Contracts".

Question #3Is there a charge to meet with a pre-need counselor or to place pre-arrangement information on file with a funeral home?
Answer:No. Consultation with a pre-need counselor is a complimentary service.

Question #4Does a pre-arrangement appointment require a great amount of time?
Answer:No. Most appointments last from one to two hours.

Question #5Can a pre-need counselor come to my home for my appointment?
Answer:Yes. The pre-need appointment can take place in the offices of the funeral home or in the convenience and privacy of your home.
