Preplanning your funeral is a loving
gesture to those you leave behind
Planning your funeral ahead of
time will prevent your family from
having to guess what your wishes

a funeral service by identifying any
religious elements, songs or readings

You will have the opportunity to
select those which meet with your

to take home with you.
