At Prugh Funeral Service, we understand that you want the memorial service of your loved one to be a comforting, intimate, and memorable experience; we also understand that you want the same thing for your own service. This is what makes pre-planning such a positive step. 

By pre-planning your life celebration, you can ensure that the service is exactly as you would like it to be, and that your friends and family members are able to honor your life without having to worry with last-minute planning or orchestrating details you left unspecified.

Benefits of Pre-Planning

Certainly,there are many benefits that come with pre-planning: 

  • Experience the peace of mind that comes from knowing your loved ones will not be burdened with funeral decisions during their time of mourning and remembrance. 
  • Ensure that you are able to make all of your funeral and life celebration choices deeply personal, authentic to your own standards, lifestyle, and beliefs.
  • Financially prepare for your service, getting an accurate estimate on the total cost and beginning the process of setting aside some funds. Pre-paying in advance locks in the current cost, and we encourage our families to choose from a variety of payment options that fit their budget. This is another important way to ease responsibilities for your family and friends.
  • Title XIX Protection, by pre-paying the funeral cost you can ensure that the money is safe and always protected.

How the Process Works

The pre-planning experience is by no means a morbid one: On the contrary, it is a positive and even comforting step you can take to make sure that all arrangements are made for your service, that those who survive you will be able to celebrate your life knowing full well that the service is exactly as you wished it would be. Pre-planning is an act of service, as well: It minimizes the chance that any planning difficulties, obstacles, or uncertainties will arrive to distract your family members during their season of bereavement and reflection.
