Have questions? We have answers.
How do I buy a grave or choose a cemetery?
If the burial is for Pre-Need or imminent need,
select a location. We recommend you make an
appointment to go and speak with a
representative of the cemetery and discuss costs,
memorialization, and burial options.
What are some of the benefits of pre-planning
a funeral service?
• Monies are placed in a secured third-party
Pre-Planned Funding Account which earns
interest and is held in an FDIC-insured financial
institution. The monies are transferrable state to
state and funeral home to funeral home;
• Offers a family member the opportunity to pay
for services and merchandise selected upon a
Pre-Plan Agreement Contract, including Cash
Advances (cemetery cost, death certificates,
minister, organist, etc.); and
• Pre-Plan Agreements which are paid in full
guarantee funeral home costs, excluding Cash
Advances. No additional costs are incurred.
What do I do with cremains?
First you must know the laws of your state
regarding the disposition of cremains. You can
memorialize cremains at home in an urn or vessel
of your choice, bury them within a grave or niche
within a cemetery, or utilize a company authorized to
scatter cremains at sea.
