Planning Ahead

We plan for every aspect of life. Having a family, vacations, weddings and retirement are all planned for. We prepare for what might happen such as fires, accidents and illness. But because most of us are uncomfortable thinking about our death, we often avoid making important decisions about our final arrangements.

The loss of a loved one is never easy. It is a time of sadness and confusion when one turns to family, friends and faith for solace and support. It is also a time when personal grief can be unnecessarily deepened by the distress of unanswered questions and the anxiety of making detailed arrangements. At a time when your family most needs to seek each others comfort, they will be seeking answers, sorting papers, calling attorneys and perhaps, worrying about paying for final expenses.

The Heritage Cremation Society offers a simple prepayment plan that includes everything necessary to complete your final arrangements. The plan includes the biographical information required for completing the death certificate, authorization forms and instructions for carrying out your wishes. At the time of your death, the prepared documents authorize us to perform our services as you have instructed. You or your appointed representative may change any instructions you wish during your lifetime by just contacting our Administrative Office. Once your prearranged plan is complete, our staff will provide you with a laminated personalized ID card. Your card will include our 24-hour On Call Staff phone number. Our staff is available to help you anytime – all it takes is a phone call and we will be there to serve you when you need us.
