Planning Aides

PrePlanning does not mean PrePaying

We have always understood the value of being prepared, especially with the right information.  When it comes to this kind of planning there are lots of "experts" who will tell you what you have to do.  Please know our approach is very low key.  We will openly and honestly answer all your questions.

Simple planning guide

At the core, planning ahead has a few basic and fundamental categories of information.

  • Obtaining Vital Statistics - This is the information we need to complete the government forms, i.e. Death Certificate, Social Security notification, and various VA forms.
  • Obituary Creation - We do collect the individual parts of the information and help you craft the exact wording for the newspapers and here on our web site.  Many choose to write their own, and that is fine with us.  We will gladly make suggestions and assist with the placement of the obituary and photo.
We've created a form to assist you in collecting this information. You may download it for you to complete on your computer and save it, then print it or e-mail it to us or other family members; or you may print it out and complete it by hand.
