Planning Ahead

Pre-planning your funeral, or the funeral for a loved one, is an important way to gain peace of mind by lifting the burden of responsibility from your loved ones. You can make decisions at a time when grief and emotional stress are not a factor, and you can take your time in making the decisions and choices that reflect your wishes and your financial ability.


You do not have to pre-pay for your funeral, but in doing so, you protect against increases in funeral prices. Your cost is guaranteed, and the funds are protected. We use the services of the Michigan Funeral Directors Association Master Escrow and Chemical Bank's Trust Program, so you can rest assured knowing that your pre-arrangement funding is safe. You will also alleviate future worry, knowing that your affairs are in order, and your family will not have to be concerned with the financial burden.

Jim will gladly meet with you to discuss your questions and options. He can come to your home, if that is more convenient for you.

Give us a call at 269-461-4241 to set up an appointment. There is no obligation, no pressure, just a chance for you to gain some very important information.
