Pre-arrangement provides peace of mind for everyone involved. A carefully pre-planned service can be the most comforting gift you leave your family. It spares them from having to face decisions that can be both emotionally and financially difficult at the time of death. It will give them lasting peace of mind to know that they have acted in accordance with your wishes.
Making pre-arrangements can be as simple or as detailed as you wish. You can make the selection of the services, casket, music, etc. or simply record the information that will be needed for legal forms and other paperwork.
Another reason to pre-plan is to ensure that your family will receive all of the benefits for which they are entitled. It is important that all of your personal records, including bank account numbers, investment information, insurance policy numbers and location of important papers be accessible to your family in the event of a death. All of this and your personal wishes for your funeral can be recorded in a Personal Arrangement Guide booklet that we provide free of charge. This ensures that the protection you worked and planned for, will be received by your beneficiaries when they need it most.
Although not required when making pre-arrangements, most people choose to set aside funds that will cover their future funeral and final expenses. We offer a variety of prepayment programs which allow you to control cost, avoid emotional overspending, and guarantee today's price. One of our directors can meet with you at your home or at our funeral home to explain the various programs and answer any questions.
We also provide an on-line pre-arrangement form, accessible at the link below, which is designed to allow Evergreen Memorial Gardens to gather basic information about you and your desired service options. To initiate the pre-arrangement process, please follow the link to the form below, complete and submit the form, then one of our representatives will follow up with you promptly.
