Pre-planning your funeral can and does make sense. It gives you the opportunity to discuss, select and, if you wish, to purchase a funeral service for yourself or a loved one. Dougherty Funeral Homes have been helping families pre-plan funerals, cremations or burials for years.

Why should I pre-plan?

Planning ahead prevents emotional overspending and protects your family's financial interests. Benefits of pre-planning:

  1. Peace of Mind - When a death occurs in any family or among friends, the grief is tremendous and the healing time very long. Prearrangement will have a positive impact on your family and friends simply because you have made your own decision. This peace of mind provides benefits far beyond the dollars spent.

  2. Satisfaction - On a prearrangement basis, a family burial estate and/or funeral merchandise can be selected by all family members, thus guaranteeing everyone's satisfaction.

  3. Price-Freezing - Based on the last five decades, we know the cost of cemetery and funeral arrangements will continue to increase. Prearrangement allows the costs to be frozen at today's prices.

  4. Conserves Insurance - Life insurance is for the living, not the deceased. Most life insurance is purchased to allow a family time to adjust to the loss of income that a death causes. If prearrangements are not made, a large amount of insurance proceeds can be spent on cemetery and funeral items adding financial burdens to loved ones left behind.

  5. Payments - Funeral and memorialization costs are expenses every individual must plan to pay. These needs can be met today out of current income through budget payments. Payment at the time of death is traditionally made on a cash basis.

  6. Togetherness - A husband and wife can share their choices and decide together, therefore saving loved ones heartache, expense and inconvenience at the time of death.
