Advance Planning

Planning in advance makes sense. You planned your education, career, home, family, investments, vacations, and retirement but not your burial plan. Why leave that burden to your loved ones?

Our staff can replace burial myths, rumors, and guesses with facts, options, and knowledge. For instance, since 1963 the Catholic Church has allowed cremation.  Your loved one’s cremains can be buried (interred) in the sacred ground of an existing plot (grave), or you can purchase a new plot, family estate, private or community mausoleum, or columbarium at one of our nine cemeteries.

Arranging your burial plans in advance ensures that you can:

  • Make your purchase from your current income
  • Pay for the burial space over time
  • Select the cemetery
  • Choose an in-ground plot, mausoleum crypt, or cremation niche
  • Select a memorial (gravestone) or marker and inscription
  • Eliminate this burden from your grieving family

Our Family Advisors are available to answer your questions, help you with your plans and assist your family when a loved one passes.
