Pre-planning

Pre-planning Your Funeral

Today, more people are recognizing that planning ahead provides peace of mind and demonstrates love and consideration for their families.

Preplanning means peace of mind for everyone involved. It's a thoughtful decision that helps reduce the stress of indecision and uncertainty when a death occurs.

A carefully preplanned service can be the most comforting to your family, as it spares them from having to face decisions that can be both emotionally and financially difficult at the time of death. It can give them lasting peace of mind to know that they have acted in accordance with your wishes.

Preplanning also gives you the opportunity for the design of a personal and customized service. When someone dies, their family is sometimes surprised and comforted by the number of people who attend the funeral.

It is an inspiration to see at the end of someone's life the countless number of lives they have touched. That is why we believe with proper planning, a funeral can be a time to grieve, to share, and to heal. Preplanning can be discussed at any age and plans can be easily amended as your preferences or circumstances change.

At O'Dacre Family Funeral Home Inc., we are personally involved with each pre-arrangement. When allowing us to discuss pre-planning, you will be speaking with professional people who provide funeral services tailored to your specific needs. We can arrange for a confidential prearrangement conference, at your convenience, with a member of our staff. There is no charge and no obligation for this meeting.

Prearranging allows you to make all of your final arrangements - including payment - so that the people who love you won't have to. Prearranging makes preplanning simple and safe. This is how it works:

  • You meet with our funeral director
  • You select the funeral and merchandise of your choice
  • You receive a fully itemized statement and preneed agreement
  • You give the funeral director a check payable to the Financial Institution
  • The funds are placed in trust by the Financial Institution within 5 business days of the signing of the contract
  • You receive a deposit acknowledgment after the account has been opened
  • Upon completion of your funeral, the Financial Institution directs the payment to O'Dacre Family Funeral Home Inc.
